4.0 out of 5 stars Good starting point for novices
This short book is a good place to start if you are new to Dreamweaver or need a bit of a kickstart. By working through a simple project, you learn various aspects of Dreamweaver, including a bit on CSS and how to add navigation menus, as well as the obvious stuff on links, tables and images.

I got this book to try to find out an alternative to table layouts using css. The books says "While it once was common to use tables to create layouts, CSS thankfully now offer a more powerful and flexible approach. For that reason, this chapter focuses on tables." !??

This short book is a good place to start if you are new to Dreamweaver or need a bit of a kickstart. By working through a simple project, you learn various aspects of Dreamweaver, including a bit on CSS and how to add navigation menus, as well as the obvious stuff on links, tables and images.

It's written in a really easy-to-read style and there are supporting files available online, including images used in the project and "before" and "after" web pages and stylesheets for each chapter, so that you can check your work. This is particularly handy if you can't identify any problems in your code.

The author's website also has notes relating to the book and downloads, so it's worth reading through those before you start. And you can even contact the author with queries.

I can't give this full marks because there appeared to be a few minor mistakes which I spotted because I had done an introductory Dreamweaver course a while back, but I'm not sure others would notice (do check the website in case this is updated to reflect these in future). Also because sometimes a new chapter would work on a new web page that I didn't realise I was supposed to have created. But overall a much nicer way to get started with DW CS4 than one of the usual doorstop books.

If you want some sort of website up and running asap, then this will do it for you. But be warned: you may find that you outgrow it FAST. If an instant site is not your top priority, and you're at all curious about your creative options, then you need a more comprehensive treatment. Plus, the more comprehensive texts also tell you how to get something up and running fast (after all, no-one has any patience or attention span any more, do they?). I recommend David McFarland's "Dreamweaver CS4" in the Missing Manuals series. For less than three times the price, a zillion times the detail. And you probably won't end with a "Me Too" website that looks like it's been thrown together in 5 minutes.

My husband bought several books and has read them all and learned lots of tricks and little bits he didn't know.
