Format: Paperback
On the surface, this book looks good. It is one of the many visually oriented books for dreamweaver MX/Fireworks that deals with the issue of integrating the two. I got it because it was easier to wade through than some of the 1000 page books with no visuals.
The biggest disapointment however is that the author has done the projects that she tells you to do, but doesn't tell you that the projects don't work!
I wanted to create pull down menus or at least jump gates in dreamweaver. After killing myslef and creating pull down menus in fireworks that have to be exported into dreamweaver I found that there is a flaw in dreamweaver that she doesn't mention. Dreamweaver has it where anything added to a template that involves action, doesn't update to all the pages using the template.
In other words, after struggling for days, I found on the dreamweaver bulletin boards that if you do anything that is put into an already existing template, such as a navigation bar, pulldowns, etc. they will not be updated. So now everytime I make a change, I have to cut and paste this new pull down bar into every single page of the website and it is a pain.
She never mentioned this. I even found her email address in the book and emailed her. No response!
This book would have been better it if had actually mentioned this. Buy a book from on author who actually uses the software in everyday situations, not one who is a professional software writer and only uses the software once!

This book is definitely geared towards beginners, but at the same time I found a lot of the explanations a little lacking. The book will walk you through steps but not explain "why" you're doing those steps. It seems to me the authors spent to much money on printing in color and not enough on writing a well thoughtout book.

I've been using computer for over 6 years now and wanted to jump and create little bit nicer web site for my little company. I think i'm pretty experienced PC user.
This books has so many errors leading to nowhere , author using CSS styles without even explaining what CSS actually ..... I could go on but i think you get the idea....
HORRIBLE BOOK. Do not make same mistake i made and look elswhere for your Dreamweaver MX fix. ( Especially if you're new to Dreamweaver MX , and this book is suppoused to me FOR newbies , heh ) I cant imagine any experienced Dreamweaver MX user usinng this , and newbies will get lost by the time they get to CSS Class style.

I don't know how anyone could rate this book highly. It was loaded with errors and unexplained situations. I can usually count on Amazon's reviews/ratings before I purchase an item, but this time I was really let down. I bought the book and it is far from perfect. It made me wonder if the previous raters were all family members. Oh well, don't buy....not unless you are into pictures only and not substance.
