Format: Paperback
This has to be the finest book on Filemaker on the market. If you've become jaded by reading third party computer books that do little more than reproduce a product's help files, this will astonish you. It is comprehensive, unpatronishing, and unbelievably practical, rich with advice, with scripting and interface development tips - I cannot praise it highly enough.
