My first version of Dreamweaver was MX2004, which I used very regularly, and updated the next year. I've been using that same version, the last of Macromedia, since then. Partly cost, mostly because my profession went different directions and I wasn't doing web design.
I recently have cause to get back into web design for education purposes and got the Creative Cloud for the year. On the surface, there's a lot familiar with the old and the new versions. But I suspected there was a huge amount I was missing. This book absolutely confirms that.
After spending some time with this, I can say it is very helpful in getting me up to speed. It's very thorough and well-written, approachable in scope without talking down to the reader. I wish the chapters were more uniform in length--my chapter a day goal brings some wildly different time demands. But, overall, the content presented is consistent with the themes, and is good about introducing and reinforcing lessons throughout.
There's no DVD, with the lessons downloadable, which allows for a somewhat cheaper cost.
