My primary reason for buying this book was learning more in-depth about Fluid Grid Layouts and mobile site development. There were two chapters total - and not nearly as much "meat" as there should have been.
One issue that continues throughout the book is the constant reference on how to Copy and Paste in both Windows & Mac. Honestly, if you're doing anything with Dreamweaver CS 6...you should know how to copy & paste on your OS platform of choice. Don't waste space explaining how to do something that could have been mentioned once - at the start of the book.
There were a lot of spots in the book where, instead of providing additional information, I was directed to purchase another book or two. Really? Why isn't that information here? Especially when it pertains directly to the information being presented in the book.
One other point. When the authors are explaining where to go and open, close or select items - there is scant use of alternative fonts. This is really a big problem when there are several references in the same paragraph - but no change in font style to call your attention to a specific word - like 'menu' or 'ID'.
This book will more than likely whet your appetite for more information. However, just as the authors state themselves - you need to buy another book for that information.
The text was clear and easy to ready, along with full-color screen captures that show exactly what's being taught. It also includes references to other topics as applicable. Some of Dreamweaver's features can be accomplished in different ways and it's good to know how they can be useful from each perspective.
The DVD was incredible. Reading the book and going thru the chapters was great, but seeing an overview of each tutorial made it even better. That sort of demonstration is invaluable. I took a local one-day class for Dreamweaver but the instructor went so quick that it was hard to keep up. The DVD covers nearly the same topics and allows you to back up and repeat parts as needed.
My only gripe is because it's a standard-type manual, the binding makes it virtually impossible to lay the book down and keep the pages open to the part I want to study. My solution, which I recommend to others, was to take the book to my local print shop and have the binding cut away and holes drilled so that I could put it into a 3-ring binder.
For someone who's never built a website before, this is a perfect guide, and even for those who have (like me) it's an amazing resource to make my sites better with a lot less effort. I'm glad I chose this book and I think you will be, too.
Of course, the great price and free shipping only added to my enjoyment.
One thing that I found really great (and it seems like it should be a no-brainer, but we all know that it's not) is that the index for this book is brilliantly done. Anything that I need to look up quickly is there, which is a huge time-saver.
A quick note on coding: this book certainly does not focus hard on it, but there is enough information in the lessons that I felt like I was getting a good look at what is really happening on websites. I really enjoyed the lessons that use the Split View, where I could see both what the design elements are and the code that makes them happen.
I highly recommend this book to users like me - websites are not my career, but I enjoy the creative aspect of building them. With the skills I have learned using this book, and having it at my fingertips to reference in the future, I could easily see turning this new hobby into a lucrative home business!
