OK so maybe the cover did say LotusScript, but if you are a Notes Developer, FORGET THIS BOOK! The book has absolutly nothing that deals with Notes/Domino at all. Maybe if there are people out there that want to learn LotusScript for other products besides Notes, this MIGHT be ok. There is little more to say for Notes consultants besides look elsewhere!

Format: Paperback
I am a 1-2-3 user and this book used 12 full pages of 322 on the subject. The rest of this book ties primarily into Word Pro with examples that don't relate to getting the results into the document. Almost all of the examples stay inside the Script Editor, which doesn't help me at all. If you're a programmer, I doubt that this book will enlighten you, if you're not, you still won't be one. The "for Dummies" humor is OK at first, but after the cute examples with cute results, the jokes just grate on you.

I don't use Notes, just Approach... All I learned from this book is how to Click a button to show a Message Box. The author thinks he is very clever because he replaced the usual "Hello World" by "Goodbye Cruel World". If that is all you need Lotusscript for, then buy this book!
Unfortunately, I could not find any other book on the subject here... If someone knows one, please email me...

Format: Paperback
I thought this book was good in teaching the basics of Lotus Script, as well as the basic concepts of any language. However, if you want to script in Lotus Notes, then forget about it. Not knowing ANYTHING about LotusScript, I got a good foundation of how to do things and what things are, but as far as using the editor, how to add your own subs and functions, etc., it was no help as Lotus Notes is different than WordPro! This did not help you to differentiate between Notes Classes at all, although it did teach you about classes in general. Bottom line: good for a basic background, but won't get you very far with Lotus Notes.

Do not buy this book if you're trying to learn LotusScript to use in Lotus Notes applications. It is focused more toward WordPro. I am a Notes developer and I didn't find the book useful at all.
