Of course, you won't learn everything. And, FrontPage cannot DO everything. But Plotkin is fine as an intro -- reader-oriented, well-organized, good index, clear discussions. Starts from ground zero -- no knowledge of Microsoft Office menus and toolbars. Takes you right up to working with databases. And he is frank about limitations of browsers and of FrontPage itself

This is a great book, it is simple to learn and easy to pick up. It's really a fabulous handbook.
It comes complete with clear illustrations and coloured illustrations, showing you exactly what the interface and layout looks like. It even presents labels to help the beginners, it even shows notes for Intermediate/Advance users.
I especially like the special boxes, containing useful warnings on what not to do and to be cautious of. Other hints are included aswell. I like the glossary since it comes with terms I'm not familiar with and some I don't know at all.
I enjoy reading the Osbourne "How to..." collection books and have read them before. Like the "How to Do Everything with Office 2000".
Also it's resonable price and it really is a bargain you can't refuse, what more can you ask?
The perfect guide, for beginners or Intermediate level in wanting to learn Microsoft FrontPage 2002. The program itself, FrontPage 2002 is at it's best !

The daunting nature of receiving a book this big (633 pages)is not to beunderestimated, especially if you're a complete rookie with theapplication. It does however cover all technical aspects of setting up awebsite very ably indeed and in a manner that is extremely easy tocomprehend. Computer-literate Frontpage rookies may even find some of thematerial a little condescending in style, particularly the description of'what happens when placing your cursor over an icon.' That said, betterto be slightly patronised than bamboozled. It demystified the process ofcreating a site admirably, and never again will I approach the prospect ofcreating a website with any great dread. My main concern, was that itdidn't cover the business of laying good groundwork. When you start tocreate a site, you become acutely aware of the necessity for clearlyplanning the structure, and establishing precisely what your objectiveactually is - a chapter on the need for this would have been a godsend,saving me considerable trial and error. If you are a practical, logicalsort of person and undeterred by huge books, then this may well be the onefor you however.

To keep this as short and to the point as possible. This is a series of books which actually lives up to its title. No offence to you Americans out there, but often a "How to " book is so full of New York addresses and telephone numbers or references to a Californian IT store that they are less than useful to somebody living in the middle of Europe, or the UK for that matter.
This book is broken down into truly logical sections and completes the subject at hand, rather than making further references to further chapters and other sections and so on.. I have three or four of these How to do everything... books and have found it a constant companion while dealing with much of the work I do.
Go with it, the price is great for what youre getting and you have the benefit of the same author dealing with subsequent versions of the same subject, so you kind of get used to how he writes. I give it a four out of five.
