5.0 out of 5 stars Didactic 31 Mar. 2009
By Mattress Mack - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The first half of the book is about Acrobat AcroForms and the second is about LiveCycle Designer XFA forms. Both halves cover their respective subject in excellent detail with a good balance of tutorial, step-by-step procedures, illustrations, and sample files on the CD to supplement the text. The two authors set out to publish a comprehensive book about PDF forms, and that's exactly what they have accomplished. See the Table of Contents.

Kudos, also, to the copy and other editors. They obviously put in some work, which is why this book reads like English with familiar spelling and grammar. The sample files on the CD are indispensable and the PDF copy of the book enabled me to read it in huge typeface so that I didn't have to squint like I was searching for molecules.

I would gladly have paid $100 for this book. For this novice, it reads like Agatha Christie and this review has distracted me long enough. Excuse me...

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive, excellent resource 26 Nov. 2009
By Comdet - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've used (or at least tried to use) a couple of other books on form design using Acrobat. Wish I had started with this one - it is excellent.

The book is very well organized with extensive cross references. You can skip to whatever section/topic you need help with and have the benefit of clear cross references to past sections for background info that would be helpful. Both traditional AcroForms and LiveCycle Designer forms are covered.

The Java examples are excellent - they alone are worth the price of the book. After trying in vain to get a handle on writing scripts using the Adobe materials, I finally get how to do it! The included CD-ROM is also a major help since it has the actual forms/code/examples explored in the text.

The writing is clear and easy to understand without being overly simplistic or redundant. The book emphasizes a step-by-step approach so even the most complex tasks get distilled down to manageable chunks.

My only quibble is the font size in the book. My aging eyes are not compatible with such a small font. It would also be helpful if it was a large format publication that was bound in a way that you could keep it open to a page while working on the PC without having to do major damage to the spine.

But, the content is why you'd purchase this publication, and along those lines, it easily deserves five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars PDF Forms Using Acrobat and LiveCycle Designer Bible . A Real Winner! 10 April 2011
By Michael Warren - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm a basic Acrobat user, probably intermediate. A project came up that is complex and has to support a few thousand users and included 10 forms. I purchased this book expecting it to be a compilation of info I could find on line. Happily wrong. It's an incredible resource for anyone using Pro or higher. It's laid out clearly, comes with a CD of examples that you can study and apply to your situation. And even better, it tells you what you can't do. In my case, stay away from more than 300 responses to 1 form. I can't begin to praise the author for all of the work he has put into this book. It's not just the info, but the clarity of how he has laid out the information chapter by chapter. He recognizes that the purchaser may only have use for specific info relating to his project, so the form of his book makes it easy to go immediately to the subject and solution that you may be looking for. I'm Cisco certified and MS Certified so I'm used to reading technical material. Again, I believe it's the only book you will need on this subject. I'd give it 10 Stars if there was that option.

3.0 out of 5 stars Explains a-lot, but doesn't help with Java Script. 11 Jan. 2013
By Richie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Java Script chapters in this book direct the reader to go to the web and copy code into the Live Cycle script editor.

If you are buying this to learn JS for Acrobat, you'll have to start looking on the web for additional help, like at acrobatusers.com
