First Sentence
Many web professionals I know would tell you that the truly difficult job of designing and launching a website is in the advance planning, as you begin to develop a general concept into a more finite one and then whip this into a workable plan. Read the first page

I decided to take the publisher up on their invitation to write about the reader's experience. I am writing about the Microsoft Savvy FrontPage 2003 by C. Crumlish.
On the surface this appears to be a very promising book. Right from the cover all the way to the table of contents. So what is the problem ?
The problem is that Mr. Crumlish spends an awful long time belabouring points that are all too obvious. Four entire chapters are wasted on basically two points: know your audience, organise your material. Ok. I got that in chapter I. I don't need it repeated ad nauseam. Even Mr. Crumlish himself writes at one point: "enough with the advise", let's get down to business. But he never does.
The two chapters that I was so looking forward to, Forms and Database connectivity are left barren of any substance. I still don't know how to write to flat files across forms. Say if I have a few pages of questionnaire that the user needs to fill out and then click submit at the very end. How is the material carried over from one from to the next ? No one tells you. Just more advice about knowing your audience and preparing your material.
Then I though well I will get to the chapter on database connectivity and surely Mr. Crumlish will show us how to connect a form to a database and update the contents. No such luck.
You are shown the most basic and simplistic of wizards of how to connect to a database but beyond that nothing.
I don't doubt that a very sincere effort was made to create a "Savvy" book but the end result falls very short of the objective. Mr. Crumlish goes on to profusely thank the web diva for poring over his book to fix errors. Maybe what Mr. Crumlish should have done is asked a plain reader like me to go over the book and then try to build a database-enabled web site.

And maybe that's what this book is: pointless.
I will need to see if the bookshop where I bought it will take it back and allow me to exchange it for a book that does more than offer platitudes.
