I purchased this book because I have the FileMaker 10 In Depth and I liked it. I wanted a book on 12 and this was the first book out so I was excited to get it. Not. The reason it is first out is because it does not include much info on Filemaker Pro 12. It appears the author simply did a find/replace on 11 to 12. Yes, there are a few instances of new narrative covering the possibilities of FMP 12 but no substance. There is no information on the new features or what sets 12 apart from the previous versions. There is so much difference that FMP 12 files cannot be read by previous versions but, there is nothing in this book that outlines those differences between the versions. I found a whole half a page on mobile devices! There should be chapters on this if not a separate book. Themes: very little and nothing on the new themes. Improved container fields: nothing new to say. My recommendation is to wait and save your money to purchase a real FMP 12 book rather then this book. At best, I say it is Filemaker 11.75. I gave it 2 stars because for a newbie, this book provides an overview of where the previous versions have brought us.

The print edition for this book via amazon.co.uk has been delayed, so I decided to download the Kindle edition to my iPad as I was really keen to get a copy of this book.

The layout was terrible with blank pages all over the place and various symbols on otherwise blank pages, also there are disjointed diagrams. I wondered if this was just a problem on the iPad version of kindle so I downloaded it onto my Kindle DX again the same issue :(

Unfortunately these issues make the ebook extremely hard (if not nearly impossible) to follow.

I'm sure the content is good, but had I known about these issues I would not have bought the Kindle edition (I'd wait for the book version), someone has been very sloppy about formatting this ebook, I expect much better than this from Que !!!

My advice is avoid the ebook until they sort out the formatting!!

******Update******

I struggled with this for days and it's unusable :(

Having looked at a "look inside" version of the book I can see what the problem is, it is to do with tips and other hints as they throw two pages and thus two lines can be spread over three pages. This also causes problems with diagrams and tables as sometimes this issue causes text to be completely orphaned from what they are trying to explain.

To be honest a three year old could do a better job :(

Got a refund as it is so bad :(

No book available in UK so I had to order it from Amazon.com, I'm finding this a lot recently and wonder if I should just order new versions of books from Amazon.com and forget Amazon.co.uk.

Que get someone to PROOF READ YOUR KINDLE VERSIONS!!!!!

A good manual but there are issues that are not touched on as well as some area that looked at to a greater degree than other books but doesn't really go the extra mile to cover "what if's" or suggestions to alternatives. I gave it a 3 star rating because I believe there are other manuals that would be of greater benefit.

The author is very precise in his wording, yet he writes in a very conversational manner that is not condescending. He leads the reader through the thought processes in order to get from point A to point B.

This book is very good for the beginner as well as for a seasoned person who would use it from a more referential position.

The examples used are very good references if one cares to dig into them and obtain a critical understanding of them.

Again, just a great book.

I have aspired to learn Filemaker for years. I had purchased the Missing Manual book for Filemaker and never really felt like I understood the content very well. I have spent countless hours reading Filemaker forum threads, watching Lynda videos, and searching for blogs and YouTube videos. I didn't feel that I was getting the information I needed.

Filemaker 12 In Depth has been fantastic. I quickly skipped past chapters 1-4 which go over the very basics of using Filemaker's user interface. Chapter 5 jumped in to the meat and quickly explains how to plan a relational database, how to implement your plan in Filemaker, and many other burning questions that I had some knowledge of but no real full understanding of.

This has been a very useful book for me and I have been able to read and understand it. Each chapter is short and covers a specific topic. I feel as if the author must have spent significant time thinking through the most simple and concise way to explain the major points.

I can't recommend this book enough if you're looking to learn Filemaker 12

really in depth, covers almost every thing you might need from filemaker.

i just wish if the screen shots in the text were colored instead of black & white.
