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.
