    Book for good overview of framework 2.0/3.0?

    I'm trying to hunt down a book that gives a good architectural overview of a recent release of the .NET framework. Something like .NET Framework Essentials but a bit more up to date

    I'm not just interested in ASP.NET, but also ADO.NET etc. Something that assumes a fair degree of programming and systems integration knowledge - but not necessarily a lot of .NET knowledge - would be ideal.

    Any recommendations?

    This is the best .NET 2.0 Framework book:

    Professional .NET Framework 2.0
    by Joe Duffy

    [URL="http://www.amazon.com/Professional-NET-Framework-2-0-Programmer/dp/0764571354"]

    3.0 encompasses WCF/WF/WPF. 3.0 sits on top of the 2.0 Framework. I don't think there is a single book for 3.0 that would do a great job with all three (WCF/WF/WPF). Juval Lowy has an excellent WCF book published by O'Reilly.

    Hope that helps.

    Oh, and Sitepoint just put out an ASP.NET 2.0 book that is probably great
