I learned from books too. But I guess my point was that if you hire an asp.net developer I would expect that developer to already know how to write for asp.net and not have to use a book. Being a developer you have to be able to learn quickly and be able to research what you don't know. Seldom do I find that information in books. MSDN, Google or whatever tend to be much better as books tend to be very basic implementation of the technology.

If you saw your plumber looking at a book when he fixed your sink would you be very confident in his ability?
