This book was published prior to GoLive 5 being available in the UK. There is little doubt that the speed of publication has had a serious effect upon the quality of this publication. Like many reference books of its type, it tells you how to work all the functions available in the software but DOES NOT EXPLAIN WHY. If you want to learn parrot fashion, then this book might just measure up to your expectations, but if you want to understand how GoLive 5 actually works so that you can cat the best from it, this is not the publication for you! Added to this, the publishers claim that you can get advice direct from the author - I sent an e-mail six weeks or so ago and am still waiting! Overall, this publication is not as good as the User Manual supplied by Adobe with the software. My advice; don't waste your hard earned cash!

3.0 out of 5 stars Update to my previous review 24 April 2001
By Paul Brown - Published on Amazon.com
After complaining to the publishers and sending a list of mistakes I found in the book, they agreed to refund my money and I also got a letter of apology from the author admiting that there were a lot of faults and that, indeed, it is a hurried rewrite of Golive 4 - great customer service, but sadly flawed book.

3.0 out of 5 stars I'm not so sure about this! 24 Jan 2001
By Paul Brown - Published on Amazon.com
I have quite a few of the Dummies books and am now getting a bit tired of the wit for the sake of wit - the book could have been slimmer, and easier to get through, if they left out the puns. Titles like: "Ladies and gentlemen set your sites!", while amusing does not really help when you're flicking through the book trying to find sections to use with your web site "Creating a site" would have been more useful. Don't get me wrong, I have enjoyed the Photoshop books but this one seemed to hit a nerve. I also thought that it would have been better with a few more illustrations as there was far too much text to illustration ratio (the Peachpit Press books seem to have a good balance). I also found quite a few mistakes and wrote to Dummies about it. Definately not as clear as the usual Dummie books. Lastly, they show how to add a Quick Time file but not FLASH (which uses far less space on your site).

1.0 out of 5 stars no good 20 July 2001
By Eric Flescher - Published on Amazon.com
The dummies books are good until this one. It is difficult to start with golive but this book did not draw the pieces together so to speak. It was cofusingly written. In some cases, you can actually do the same commands etc in different ways and this book listed them in many different places instead of bringing them together. Also try to look up some in the index and I could not find them. Too much text and not enough visuals. I was to own it but sent it back as I was pretty disgusted with the book and the haphazardly written approach. ...

2.0 out of 5 stars Quantam Leaps 28 Jan 2002
By "plunkett07" - Published on Amazon.com
While they start with A-B-C's... they leap to E-F-G without including D. While you're flipping back to see where you missed it (it wasn't there) they leap to L-M-N-O and you can't figure out how.
The book should be named "GOLIVE -- TO MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE DUMMIES."
Because that's how you end up feeling when you file the bookstore receipt.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good 4 Feb 2001
By Cookie - Published on Amazon.com
GoLive 5 for Dummies is a good book for beginners but not very good for intermediate and advanced. It is not a book you can crawl into bed and read for pleasure. It gave me a good idea about web pages,etc.
