The idiots guide provided me with just the level of information I needed. I have some knowledge of writing web pages (strictly amateur) with Frontpage Express and Hot Metal Pro and was a bit worried it would be too basic. In fact as with all the Idiots Guide series there was a wealth of information presented in a no nonsense easy to understand format. It is an excellent guide to Frontpage 2000 for beginners especially but also for people with some knowledge already. Good value too from Amazon, of course!

4.0 out of 5 stars A great book for new Front Page users. 29 July 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I purchased this book based on the other review, and am glad I did. I found it easy to locate answers to many questions.The examples are good but, the author sometimes says to click on an icon and doesn't show you what it looks like. To her credit, there is a tear out page with all the tool bars and their titles. I had had only a limited knowledge of Front Page 98 before buying FP 2000. This book got me off to a running start. If you are a newbie to Front Page this is the book for you!

This book is OK but it could have been so much better. If only it had some practical 'step by step' examples to highlight points that the author attemped to make. The authors writing style is good but for a 'Complete Idiots' title I feel too much was assumed of the reader.

3.0 out of 5 stars There are better sources readily available 21 Jan 2000
By Geoffrey Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
To be fair, I need to say that I had built a number of web sites in native HTML before I tried FP2000, and that I was able to create a 10 page site in FP2000 and get it up and running in about 2 hours -- all just from intuiting what FP2000 seemed to be about -- BEFORE I looked at this book. I'm not bragging; FrontPage 2000 is really EASY. Given that Microsoft has made FP2000 a VERY intuitively obvious product, I didn't think the book would be very helpful to the intended audience. The book has something of a tendency to belabor the obvious (always a risk when writing about something that is intuitively obvious) and it was at the same time just a little hard to follow the direction the book was headed at several points. In preference to this one, I think that the 40 pages devoted to FrontPage 2000 in "Creating Web Pages for Dummies Quick Reference 2nd edition" handles the task faster and better, and also does a better job creating a context. While I wouldn't tell my clients NOT to read this one, it's certainly NOT the book I would recommend.

2.0 out of 5 stars Pretty pictures but little content 15 May 2000
By Bob - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
When I began to use Frontpage I was given a copy of this book to help get started. While the book has many pictures - it provides no practical help when you start working with Frontpage. The online help will provide more details than this book. Check out the alternatives before deciding on this one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Basic Coverage of a Complex Program 25 Jan 2001
By Michael Shannon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
For anyone who finds larger texts too intimidating, and who needs just a basic personal web site (for which FrontPage is eminently suited), this book may help, at least if read in conjunction with doing the examples in the "Getting Started" book accompanying FP2000.
You'd have to like adages such as "too many cooks spoil the broth" and other non-technical stuff throughout, and an index of only average (i.e. poor) standard.
For more serious web site builders who may wish to restrict access to some web pages, or who want to use FP2000's more advanced features, and given that Microsoft has made such a dog's breakfast of FP2000, this book has gaps that you could fly a jumbo jet through. Consequently, some of the steps outlined in the book do not work.
