So far, I am finding this book difficult to learn from. I have no doubt the author is an expert but the lessons and layout of the lessons, for me at least, require real effort. I'm bogged down every page and feel quite upset after a few hours of trying. I'm still working on the lessons, but so far many of the lessons require looking at how various forms in the template are set-up. I prefer a step-by-step method of learning to use a product, in this case, making a variety of forms from the beginning and using the tools as you go. For my work I need to know how to make sections of a form expand and contract as required and to make a form that has invisable sections that become visable if required. As far as I can tell, aside from examining the structure of a provided form there are no written instructions on how to do recreate these structures. I think the product is good, but would prefer an easier style of learning.
1: The Basics --> Explore LC and introduce forms
2: Form Design --> General rules for good form designs; not on LC...
3: Form Creation --> Creation of forms in LC
5: Form Data --> Binding to data; validation
6: Steal These Scripts --> Different scripts that we can reuse
This book does what it does well, but I would have liked it to go further. I would have liked more advanced forms (dynamic for example) in the chap. 3 and more scripts in chap. 4...
A good book, but could have more pages to go deeper, since there's no other book on the subject. If you want to go deeper, you'll have to look for hard to find trainings on the Web...

Although a little expensive, if you want to get a form developed and in production quickly this book can help.
I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to create powerful, easy to edit automated forms but doesn't have lots of time to spend learning a new software.
