This book will begin with an introduction to the Razor syntax, where/how it fits in to the Web Matrix and ASP.NET MVC platforms, and how to effectively leverage the syntax on those platforms. It will continue to dive deeper, espousing some best practices and useful sample code for the Web Matrix and ASP.NET MVC platforms. Finally, the book will examine the underlying APIs themselves (which are separate from the syntax discussed previously), explain how the Razor API works, and show how to extend the API with custom functionality, even in non-web scenarios.

"Good quick introduction" - by Peter M on 02-JAN-2013

The book is excellent for a quick introduction. It's clear and well organised. It contains enough information to get started in the technology, and have a reasonable idea of what is covered by the technology.

If you are looking for a something more in-depth, you should investigate further. I appreciated the brevity however.
