We all know that every ASP.NET MVC book has some certain chapters :

Instead of a specific chapter I will be more happy with a book that explain the various part with a real world application. In today books I've read, quite all start with very simple samples of ecommerce or invitation to parties.
I will be more happy with a book that guide the reader in writing a real website, while explaining the patterns and the various functionalities.
As an example I liked a book on .net 1.0 (from wrox if I remember correctly) that teached me net 1.0 while developing a forum. From db design, through implementation of IPrincipal etc.
As an appendix some advanced topics on security, REST or azure development.

I KNOW I KNOW! haha
You know what a GREAT feature would be to have? A chapter dedicated specifically to membership provider implementation in MVC.
Including customization etc.
I know this has been a pretty hot and vague topic publicly for MVC since before MVC 3 hit.

thanks for the response.
Well, ASP.NET Membership API works pretty great but implementation of OpenAuth would be great idea, isn't it?

yes actually, that would be a great idea!
In all honesty, almost anything relating to social networking with mvc will be a hot topic I think. But open auth, absolutely! great idea.

I can't remember the last production software I've worked on that exsited in a single project. How about tips for enterprise project structure. For instance, when you have separate projects for data models, services, and UI. Furthermore, the use of DTOs
and how that fits into the ViewModel patern. Let's see a book that speeks to the more complicated projects. Good question! Thanks for asking it.

Yes, good point. Building facebook apps with asp.net and how to run them as application on facebook would be also considerable.

Good call @vinneyk. Most of ASP.NET MVC books are for beginners. Of course they have advanced topics but not musc and deep.
The core fundemental that I can tell so far is building a real world application all the way through the book is mostly the thing everybody wants.

I recently finished reading
Professional ASP.NET MVC 3 which had some great information but, in my opinion, it should have been titled
An Introduction to Professional ASP.NET MVC 3. Jeremy Likeness is supposedly working on a book that is intended to shed some light on real-world application development in general but I'm certain that there are enough advanced topics in MVC to constitute
an MVC specific publishing.
Are you planning to write an MVC 4 book or are you just throwing that question out there?
