I bought this book with one goal in mind - to update my website without spending a ridiculous amount of cash.

To say that the book paid for itself would be something of an understatement, within 6 months my sales had increased 847%.
This book taught me how to add PayPal buttons so that my customers could pay instantly, how to add my catalogue as a pdf file, saving my printing and postage costs and add loads more photographes and navigation tools which my customers have really appreciated.

I can't say that the process has been entirely painless. There has been a lot of head scratching and swearing but this book has taken my from a total web virgin to reasonably competant website creator (not quite a geek!) so I am very happy to recommend it.

I bought this book because I recognise and admit I am a complete "Dummie" when it comes to computer stuff. I thought this book would advance me from a complete novice to someone who could at the very least create the crudest Web page/site - how wrong I was. I got to page 18 where up to this point I had managed to open the One Page Web Site page - hooray I thought I'm on my way and then the words at the bottom of the page read "The stage is now set for you to begin construction on your masterpiece" and then nothing...There was no instruction of what to do next from this point but only what to do if you already had a web site you want to import into this one. I am very disappointed with this book as I thought it would be step by step instructions which it is far from. I would not recommend this book for for the complete novice.

I'd read this before, but found when I wanted to use FP after quite a gap that I'd lost my "Dummies". Obvious answer - whistle up another from Amazon!

just what I needed 24 Jun. 2004
By C. Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I delved into HTML several years ago and fooled around with it on my personal website but the tedium of having to code every single whisker of a webpage led me to try FrontPage 2000. I loved it but never had the time to learn it well. It speeded my page production but I wasn't satisfied with the results. I put webpage work aside for a couple of years then recently decided to dive in with the completely worked over FrontPage 2003 and dedicate myself to learning it well.
Dornfest's book was a perfect way to break off the rust while at the same time becoming acquainted with the new capabilities of FP2003. I generally am afraid of the DUMMIES series because the authors can go too far trying to be informal and funny, while neglecting the meat of the subject. A page with a cartoon is a wasted page for me when I want to know something. Dornfest shows welcome restraint, holding off on the jokes for the most part and carefully explaining how FP works in clear prose.
The presentation is patient and I found no glitches where something different happens on the screen from what is described in the book. All the basics are here along with introductions to more advanced topics and a great collection of sites to visit for further learning.

I'm lost 24 Feb. 2005
By starr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I've never written a review before, but I'm so lost after reading this book that I had to warn others before they come down the same road.

I agree with "a reader" that the author will "introduce a topic but, before developing it, tell the reader that she'll explain later how it (method, procedure, &c) should be accomplished." It's enough to drive a person crazy. Also, if you run into a problem, too bad. Troubleshooting is a nontopic in this book.

Not very enlightening 23 Mar. 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is totally disjointed. The author will introduce a topic but, before developing it, tell the reader that she'll explain later how it (method, procedure, &c) should be accomplished. This infuriating tactic happens repeatedly thereby making it impossible to learn anything. I also suspect that the author does NOT grasp the underlying theoretical/architectural concepts of FrontPage, much less (X)HTML, enough to provide the reader much more than a blind how-to guide. She never explains WHY we choose this option, WHY we pick this menu item, WHY we highlight this text, WHY we insert this file, and so on...

If you don't believe me, look at the reviews of this same author's "FrontPage 2002 with CD-ROM" previous version of this book.

Be skeptical of glowing 5-star reviews from critics who find absolutely no fault with the books they are reviewing. "Before reading xxxx I knew absolutely nothing but after devouring this paragon of perfection I am now totally conversant with the subject of yyyy."

Terrible for a Help Book 27 Jan. 2006
By Marilyn Sweet - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a terrible book. I am a total novice in FrontPage and web page creation but have lots of experience in computers including programming years ago.

Usually I am the one everyone asks questions of with computers.

I was unable find the Button she talked about on the 3rd page. I searched everywhere for it and asked Microsoft and HELP and still haven't found it. She assumes you know where things are but we DON'T. very frustrating experience.

Covers A Lot 14 Feb. 2007
By Steve G - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book covers a lot of the fuctionality of Frontpage 2003. It is easy to read and includes specific instructions with extra little hints thrown in. When I first used Frontpage I was expecting a product that helped me create html pages. It does that but the book helped me to understand the site management aspect of the product also. A great jumpstart to using the software.
