Review

“…one of the most established and revered brands in computer publishing… …another authoritative tome…far better value for money than most manuals…” (Practical Web Projects, May 2003)

From the Back Cover

"Joseph shows how to use the most significant release of Dreamweaver since version 1 to solve real–world development problems."
—David Deming, Product Manager for Dreamweaver, Macromedia

Author Joseph Lowery has worked with the Dreamweaver team at Macromedia since the program’s first release, and he is intimately familiar with every Dreamweaver tool, technique, and shortcut. From Dreamweaver basics to all the dramatic changes in MX – enhanced CSS capabilities, new template options, the new tag library structure, ASP.NET and PHP support, ColdFusion integration, and Web services tools – he shows you step by step how to get the most out of Dreamweaver and create sites that are truly state–of–the–art.

Format: Paperback
Given that this is a huge tome (over 1000 pages), presenting an enormous body of information; and given that the information is often quite complex, the way in which it is presented is impressive. The book is neatly divided into 7 sections, each section contains between 5 and 9 chapters, and each chapter is divided into clearly-labelled sub-sections. This clarity of presentation makes the book easy to read, chapter by chapter, but also great for dipping into when you want to find something specific.
I'm not a Dreamweaver novice, but neither am I a grizzled old website designer with years of experience, so for me, the style and language are great. Direct enough to get the point across without wading through loads of over-simple directions, but straightforward and clear enough to get a grasp of the more difficult concepts without feeling battered by jargon!
A genuinely helpful reference book.

Infuriating. Do not believe the waffle in the intro about this book being suitable for absolute beginners. It assumes that the reader knows something about Dreamweaver and at least has an existing grasp of webpage building. It breezes over the basics far too quickly, often without adequate explanations. For example, part of creating a website is defining a testing server. For an absolute beginner, like me, this is likely to be the PC on which the site is being created. This "helpful" book simply states "You should also define, at this time, whether the testing server is located locally or should be accessed via FTP." Well thanks awfully, but how do I complete the bit about defining the local testing server? Maybe a completely basic thing, but for a novice, it's just one of the hundreds of things we need explaining at the outset. To be fair, it is a comprehensive book and will probably prove to be a good buy eventually, but it looks like I'll have to learn Dreamweaver MX the hard way before I get the most out of it.

The Dreamweaver bible is praised by professionals and hated by beginning webdesigners. For a reason! This book is presented as equally suited to pros and beginners alike. Well, unless you enjoy tormenting yourselves, beginners should avoid the Bible at all cost.. If you do not know anything about Dreamweaver MX yet and want to learn it look somewhere else.

I would recommend this book as a reference next to a good tutorial like the one from FriendsOfEd called Foundation Dreamweaver or the ones from Wrox.
If you new to Dreamweaver, don't expect it to teach you all of it with excercises etc.. It's merely something you dip in every now and then to check "what that function or button does" or simply something that explains the functionality in plain english.

I started with this book when Dreamweaver 3 was released back in 1998 and I always buy each new edition because it is so comprehensive. If you want a cover-to-cover beginner's guide to throw away after one read then buy something else but if you want to learn the program thoroughly and have a valuable reference to return to buy the Bible.
