Comments about oreilly Professional ASP.NET MVC 5:

I quit buying Wrox books years ago, and this one reminded me of some of the reasons why. The quality of the content is very uneven, and the authors talk about non-existent code samples. All in all, it reflects the multi-author nature of an anthology rather than a coherent reference. There is some useful information in it, but I would not pay full price for this book.
