As a collector of all things "Fireworks" this manual had been on my hit list for sometime, it's presumption is that you know nothing about the programme, and it's spot on there, this is for the beginner whose curious about delving into something a bit different (and easier) than the Photoshop suite of apps.
It's Illustration based all the way through, and idiot proof to the end, i know a fair bit about the programme so it wasn't relevant for the more intermediate user, but for newbies it's a great start.
Visual Learners FW 4 concentrates mainly on turning photo's/graphics into web graphics, adding special effects to images/text, modifying, manipulating/optimising and creating better images via Fireworks. If you use Dreamweaver as your HTML editor then this is the app... to get into, as they work hand in hand with each other.
So to reiterate, if your looking for a start in graphic basics, or just to understand the fundamentals behind it, and you've trawled Amazon for that first book on the subject, then you could do worse than invest in a copy of said book. I have 30+ titles on Fireworks from beginner to advanced, but as a starting point on the programme, nothing better's it.

Solid Introduction to Fireworks 10 Feb. 2002
By Bruce A. Moon - Published on
Fireworks 4 for Visual Learners presents Macromedia's rich featured web graphics program in a clear, understandable format which is understandable for the beginning web page designer. Using screenshots with graphic prompts, Fireworks 4 for the Visual Learner introduces concepts and then builds in practice with that concept as other concepts are introduced. The book covers many of the features of the program with a concluding section on incorporating graphics into simple webpages. Fireworks 4 for Visual Learners provides a firm visual foundation for using Fireworks which should enable the new user to quickly use the program and later explore the richness of Fireworks.

Actually, I give the book no stars! 14 Mar. 2003
By A Customer - Published on
The book states that the files used to gain an insite into Fireworks 4 are available to download. No files or CDs come with the book. The publisher considers the book to be out of print, and therefore all Fireworks 4 files have been taken off of their website. There is no reason to buy the book, since there are no hands on files to use in conjunction with the book.

Fireworks 4 for Visual Learner 31 Jan. 2002
By Michel - Published on
As a visual learner, and having very tight schedule this book was of great help to me to shorten the learning curve. The pictures took me step by step in clear English to my goal. It gives me the base so fast that I can start using the program confidently, and start building on it by everyday experience.
Visibooks approach makes my learning experience different. I can say to my colleuges on Friday that I Know It, and come back on Monday show them my skills!!!!! ;-)

"Do and Learn" - the best way to retain in memory 6 Dec. 2001
By Lynda Berman - Published on
Visibooks Fireworks is all one needs to learn to create, edit, and animate graphics. Easy to follow illustrated and exciting lessons, even for those inexperienced with computer lingo. Almost all that's needed for optimizing a website built with Dreamweaver.
