3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 16 Mar 2011
By DGeo
Format:Paperback
When I first got this book and discovered it had an associated web version with built in videos, I thought it was going to be great. But I was rather disappointed by it. If you want to read it through from cover to cover it's ok but if, like me, you want to use it as a reference once you've got the general idea then it's not so good. The index never seems to contain the term you are looking for and you are reduced to skipping through the pages in search of the section you want. I also found there was, for me, far too much emphasis on the built in libraries and not enough help for those building their own libraries from scratch. In the end I found the web version less use than I had imagined and the videos not much help.

1.0 out of 5 stars Out of date information for Bento 16 Dec 2011
Format:Paperback
This book is totally out of date as it has not been updated for the current soft ware version Bento 4. The price is too expensive for something that is two years out of date and for a previous version of their soft ware. Very dissapointed

I have been 'playing' with Bento since it first came out but never really discovered how to use it. Now I understand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book and support! 22 Aug 2010
By Richard G. Eisenhuth - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Using Bento has been a great resource for me. The book is well written & is supported by videos and audio segments that are accessed online. When it comes to software learning, I like to read and see, so the videos were extremely valuable.

A word about support from those involved with the book. Like a previous reviewer, I initially had trouble getting the online content It appeared at first glance that I needed to pay an additional fee! I e-mailed the representative (Loretta Yates) who offered to help the previous disgruntled reviewer with similar problems. I sent my help request around midnight on a Friday, and Loretta responded around 5:30 AM the next morning! She constantly followed up and soon I had complete access to the content. Turns out a previous "free trial" i Had enacted was creating the problem. So, mega-kudos to Loretta and the Safari on-line help and theauthor! When you buy this book, you are buying a team of dedicated professionals, Thanks!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for learning Bento 22 Aug 2010
By Douglas Lind - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
As the previous reviewer mentioned, I had some difficulties accessing the online materials, but both the author and
Loretta from Que responded very quickly and cleared things up (wait for the email from Que to provide the
necessary information to log in for access, and although this is a little unclear from the instructions I should
have known this).

I've used the web edition exclusively, the first time I've tried it, and it works remarkably well. The added
video and audio clips by the author add a lot, sometimes just useful comments mentioned in passing.
So the hardcopy is just sitting on the shelf, at least for now!

The presentation is clear, careful, and informative. Bento has some limitations in contrast to an industrial
strength database like Filemaker Pro 11 (from my point of view the most important is that there is no way
to create a common key field to create relations, although there are ways to create relations by hand). This
book explains what Bento can do and what it is good for. It also describes how to use the iPad and iPhone
apps as very portable extensions of your database, which I am finding incredibly handy as well.

1.0 out of 5 stars This book is a ripoff 24 July 2010
By Jan A. Bergeron - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Don't buy this book if you want a real reference to using Bento. The book is hard to read, hard to follow, and the illustrations are all so small that you need a magnifying glass to see what they refer to. But this isn't the real reason it is a ripoff. Inside the front cover they tell you it is more than just a book. That you also get free access to the Web version at Safari Books Online. I bought the book. I followed the instructions for registering it. They show that I have registered it. They even confirm that I have the book in my own hot hands by asking me for a specific word in a chapter and paragraph. All goes well. Then I click the link for safari books and there is the book. But guess what? It is only a preview. If I want to see the whole book, I must buy a subscription, which costs $42 a month! So this free online book with videos and updates and all sorts of good stuff is really just a tickler to get you to buy this subscription that costs four times what the book costs and you have to pay it every month. How do these people stay in business? First scam I have ever come across on Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars The missing LINK! 2 July 2012
By Sam Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I tried using the tutorials that come with Bento, and looking on line, for a YEAR before buying this book. It has been just what I needed to get past the hump and actually UNDERSTAND the paradigm of Bento and how to use it. I have only READ the text, and it is everything I need. This book is great at providing not only the underlying structure of Bento, but also at providing real examples that you can try yourself.
