5.0 out of 5 stars New edition hits the spot, 26 May 2009
This review is from: FileMaker Pro 10 Bible w/WS (Paperback)
The first edition of the Filemaker Bible mainly written by Ray Cologon, Filemaker Bible 9, was in this reviewer's view the best book on Filemaker since "Scriptology". This new edition entirely written by Cologon continues in that tradition. With about 50 additional pages and much of the rest reworked to help developers get the best from Filemaker 10 this is the best book available on how to make Filemaker work for you using good practice throughout. Many developers use out-of-date techniques they picked up in previous versions of the product. Frequent reference to the new edition of the bible is the best way to avoid making those big mistakes that can cause so much frustration and additional work when you use out-of-date none good practice techniques.

There are quite a few very clever and well informed people around the Filemaker world, but Cologon is both very clever and very good at communicating, a quality not shared by all his peers. Two of the other best clever communicators, Corn Walker and Jason DeLooze continue as technical editors of this edition which thus increases the volume's authority. Hence this book gives great value and time invested in studying will be rapidly repaid in reduced development time and better solutions.

The one thing I would like, but couldn't find, is a black line system showing changes from the previous edition which would make it easier to review Cologon's latest best advice.
