Just got a copy of the second edition of Advanced .NET Remoting by Ingo (and now also Mario Szpuszta). I had the good fortune of squeezing my brain through it a while back (and lived!). While the talk continues, you really need to read as much of this book as you can. It's not only THE best book on Remoting (even better than the first edition), it's also a great reference on how to build scalable, loosely coupled distributed applications; information that is useful if you're building Remoting, Web Services, Indigo or even COM/COM+ apps.
