Numerous errors in this book almost brought me to a standstill.
Using [...] and [...] I was finally able to get everything to work.
The examples used in this book are amazingly useful, once you get them to work. I'm keeping this book as a reference.
Side note: I had to ditch Dreamweaver MX 2004 as it was far too buggy and crash-prone. Stick with plain Dreamweaver MX.

First I thought this book over explains everything. When I started encountering territories that I'm not familiar with, I started to greatly appreciate the author's method of teaching. This book teaches you by getting you working on real projects from scratch. While you are following the step by step instructions, the author explains the science and whys of these instructions. The only drawback of this book is that project 1 seems to be tested only on Internet Explorer. I tried the files with Netscape 4.79 and 6.2 they both showed some flows that took me hours to figure out how to fix. Also I had to use a behavior extension to recover the mess, in Netscape, made by adding layers. Apart from that all my projects have worked perfectly. The second part is code intensive which I really appreciate. This book will show what's going on behind the scenes. Therefore you won't be limited by what Dreamweaver can offer. It will show you the way to go beyond Dreamweaver's ability. This is not a "for dummies" type of book. You have to follow the instructions very carefully. All the mistakes in this project turned out to be mine. For the effort made to write this book I cannot give less than five stars. I wouldn't hesitate to buy Professional Dreamweaver MX if it exists.

I found this book to be one of my most prized reference books. It takes you through the building of three different sites. You are gradually introduced to ASP and JavaScript.
If you are serious about web design, and have found FrontPage to bee too limiting, this is the book to get you going!

I purchased 3 WROX books in the past this with good success. I expected the same thoroughness, but unfortunately, couldn't find it in this one.
As a somewhat seasoned developer using both Visual Studio and GoLive on our Corporate Intranet, I only needed to acquire familiarity with the features within Dreamweaver for my own personal use.
I enjoyed the overview and first few chapters in this book, and soon began to appreciate the potential this book might have. At the end of chapter two, I compared my project with the illustration in the book. They didn't look the same. I was determined to find out why, so I compared my code with the downloaded code. They were different. I rechecked the steps in the book looking for the missed steps, but didn't see it.
If you want to learn Dreamweaver MX, and don't mind checking your code with the downloaded code, then this book might work for you. For me, I'll look elsewhere.

When I bought this book I wasn't sure if the content would pleasure my need of building a good website. I did not have any experience in building websites. The start was rough, you need to be precise but the screenprints are a good help. After the first chapter I got the taste of it. I learned a lot and I have to say: I'm proud of my new website. Because of the book I also realized that Dreamweaver is designed in a smart way. A very good book, also for beginners.

I just purchased this book because I am a new user of Dreamweaver. After going through this book, I have to disagree with the negative reviews I read here. Like Charles Brown's Fireworks MX book, it teaches both the program and the principles of web design.
First of all, the book has the reader build three fairly complicated website step-by-step as promised. However, unlike other step-by-step books I have read, they require careful reading and understanding. As an example, Chapter 2 has the reader build a complex system of embedded tables. The reader is warned to take this slowly and carefully. It took me several tries before I fully understood the concept and completed it successfully but the end result was an incredible learning experience. The book was complete and correct. These are not knock-off exercises.
By the time I completed the book, I had a thorough knowledge of the program and web design. I had built sites with database and JavaScript behaviors. Again, this book was not a quick read but it works.
From what I see at the Wrox site, Wiley just took them over and will be reopening the site soon. I have to agree with the reviewer that this is the best book on Dreamweaver MX written. I will stick with Charles Brown's books as they come out.
