Well, my problem with the beginner books is that they kind of gloss over the concept of OOP, and as such, people treat ASP.NET like it's just a scripting platform. I would say go with any book that has "beginner" in the title, but read this one right after.
If you know ASP, basically you're almost starting over anyway. It really is that different.
