If you are looking for books about AJAX techniques in general I would recommend either
Programmer to Programmer: Professional AJAX and of course
However, if you want to learn more about the ASP.NET AJAX framework I HIGHLY recommend
ASP.NET AJAX In Action
It's nice to understand how the AJAX works behind the scenes and getting a handle on AJAX design patterns is also great knowledge to have. But the ASP.NET AJAX framework makes it all so easy and abstracts most of the complexity away. Also offering built
works and why its not the best solution to rely on in most cases. The UpdatePanel is an easy way of providing AJAX-like behavior, but don't be decieved. It is actually a really clunky solution and can wind up increasing the bandwidth your application uses
and easily overwhelm your server with abundant amounts of requests.

want to delve in deeply. I'd give it a 90% score. The most annoying thing about it is the constant misuse of words such as architeching and especially leveraging.
Heh Microserfs - leveraging is not a verb. The correct verb to use is "to lever". One does not "leverage" a particular technology - but I could probably agree that one might want to "lever" it. That grates so much on me that I can hardly read those passages
and am forced to deduct 10% from the book's score for abuse of the English language. Shoot the editor.
