ASP.NET MVC in Action book complete and headed to the presses!

Below is the final cover for the book.  Because of the heavy emphasis on complementary tools for ASP.NET MVC, we’ve added a subtitle, “with MvcContrib, NHibernate, and more”.  MvcContrib is sprinkled throughout the book because we as an author team feel that MvcContrib is essential for its extra features.  It stays out of the way, but it is extremely useful to not have to write common extensions yourself.

I want to thank Phil Haack for coming through with a great Foreword for the book.  Thanks as well for the great framework that deserves this book.  Thanks to my two great co-authors, Ben Scheirman and Jimmy Bogard.  Also thanks to Jeremy Skinner who was a terrific technical editor.

We’re already starting plans for the 2nd edition that will cover ASP.NET MVC 2 (to be shipped with Visual Studio 2010).

@kevin - Well, he does look like quite the miser. And how 'bout those chops! Jeffrey, I think you need to grow some of those; and while you're at it, get one of those hats too! :-D

Congrats! I know what an ordeal it is to get a book to print. :)

Congratulations guys, I'm looking forward to reading it.

How long did it take alltogether? I think you got it to press in 1/3 of the time we did with NHibernate in Action :S

Congratulation Jeff, I have been following and reading this since the MEAP release and I love it. The content was a little over my head at the start but since I started to really use ASP.NET MVC it never leaves my side. I was really looking forward to the final release so, I can't wait to get my hands on it.
