It’s one of their MEAP (Manning Early Access Program) books, which means it’s still a work in progress; buying it means you get the latest revision as well as the final version once it’s done.

Here’s the description of the book:

ASP.NET is an established technology to build web applications using Microsoft products. It drives a number of enterprise-level web sites around the world, but it can be scaled for projects of any size. The new version 4.0 is an evolutionary step: you will find a lot of new features that you will be able to leverage to build better web applications with minimal effort.

ASP.NET 4.0 in Practice contains real world techniques from well-known professionals who have been using ASP.NET since the first previews. Using a practical Problem-Solution-Discussion format, it will guide you through the most common scenarios you will face in a typical ASP.NET application, and provide solutions and suggestions to take your applications to another level.
