If you use Kendo UI for your frontend, I suggest you read this. MVVM provides a decent level of abstractions from nasty DOM manipulation habits.

On page 41, the book tells me to edit the RemoteData.cshtml file but the book never told me to create that page.
It is very confusing when a technical book contains syntax errors. Shame on the editor and the publisher (PACKIT Publishing). I guess I will stick with Apress or Wrox for technical manuals. For $40, this book is confusing.
The author also dives right into extensive and very detailed examples of the Model View Controller [MVC] pattern. Ideally, you have already coded in this, in other contexts. What you quickly see is that the Kendo scripts that appear in your HTML file to define a web page, can be very concise. The brevity is a strong advantage of Kendo. This contrasts greatly with a recent trend for a web page to be kilobytes and kilobytes of impenetrable scripts.
Kendo also assumes HTML5, to let you easily add Kendo UI widgets.
Nicely, the book devotes an entire chapter to the AutoComplete widget. A cool word wheel akin to what you have undoubtedly seen in Google, where as you type a query, full possibilities of search queries appear under your typing. The merits of this are clear and it is good that Kendo gives you similar functionality right out of the box.
The book also can extend your patterns education. It starts with the fundamental MVC, as discussed above. But it also offers a chaper on Model View View Model [MVVM]. More specialised and not as well used as MVC. But recommended as a good way to separate different coding and skill set concerns. A factorisation that can make more robust code.
