The book is not a tutorial but is written well as to teach alongside presenting information in detail...Detail means larger coverage but slower progress if you want to go through the book start to finish...I would suggest get an easier book to begin with and then graduate yourself to this very useful and valuable book for reference and for learning ... Anyone who want to use Dreamweaver well should get this book...

tag) which I skipped straight over but which a beginner would find useful (although there's plenty of other books that cover this material). For the more advanced user there's some great info on how to make your own Dreamweaver extensions, cross-browser compatibility issues, and incorporating the Beatnik plug-in into your pages to make interesting sound effects.
The accompanying CD-ROM is full of useful Dreamweaver extensions (although you could have downloaded these from various websites), as well as trial versions of Dreamweaver, Fireworks, Flash. Also included is the complete text of the book in PDF format.
There is a Quickstart section that's supposed to get you up and running fast, but I found this section to be too deep too soon for what I wanted. I needed about 3 weeks of reading and practice before I could build something that was useful (I'm building an Intranet for the company I work at), and I will probably need another 2-3 months with this book before I can make my site do what I want it to do. Nonethelss, I have received a lot of compliments for what I now have.
I think that after getting through this book (in the 2-3 months) I will be "really competent". Becomming an expert will take more time. But that's the way it is with any software book. Nobody becomes an programming or website expert quickly from a book. Just practice!
There is also a full-featured 30-day trial of Dreamweaver on the CD, a definate plus.
