Books - ASP.NET Building Controls

I'm after suggestions for the best books around for creating, using and displaying controls in ASP.NET (by "displaying", I guess I'm talking about CSS). I'd like a book that uses VB.NET for its examples and ideally uses Visual Studio 2003. (Probably a common thread in the newsgroups, but things do move on...) Thanks in advance Griff...

    There is no single best book to be had; you'll want to go to a good
    technical bookstore and examine a few (perhaps based on recommendations
    here). Ask yourself if you're looking for a tutorial or a reference book
    (few books are great at being both). Does the book have the right number of
    examples, and are they clearly explained? Is the material presented in a
    logical and coherent order? Does the publisher have a reputation for
    creating high quality books that are well edited?

    Other factors to consider is the author's availabiliity: does the author
    offer source code and a place to ask questions?

    Of course, I hope you will take a look at my book: Programming ASP.NET 2nd
    Edition (O'Reilly). You'll find that it is a comprehensive tutorial with
    many examples, all of which are written both in C# and VB.NET. Further, I
    offer source code, a FAQ, an errata and a link to a support discussion site
    on my web site: [url]http://www.LibertyAssociates.com[/url].

    Good luck in your search.

    If you're looking for a book on control building (which I assume you
    are, since you posted this to .buildingcontrols), *the* book to have,
    IMO, is:

    Developing Microsoft ASP.NET Server Controls and Components
    [url]http://www.4guysfromrolla.com/ASPScripts/Goto.asp?ID=170[/url]
    ISBN: 0735615829

    This is a must-have book for any serious ASP.NET control developer...

    I recommend the following.

    [url]http://www.bookpool.com/sm/0321223675[/url]

    It is very complete, has good examples. I would read the whole thing, but it
    gives you information you can immediately work with and test.

    Good luck.
