As someone who knows how to use Authoware but has trouble getting started I found the book to be quite useful. Mr Henry relates his life experiences in a way that connects with the average "Joe". He has made learning a sometimes difficult program fun. Mr. Henry advises you on key items that need to be kept in mind during the development process and applies his teaching through interactive lessons in the middle and at the end of almost every chapter. He also provides little mental checklists for the more complicated steps. As a novice user I find Mr. Henry's book to be invaluable. I look forward to his teachings in the upcoming advanced book.

Having read many of the Authorware books out there looking for a good reference manual, this is currently the best I've found. As with all computer books, ther are a few typo's, but it's still a surprisingly good read with plenty of information for reference as well. I'm particularly impressed with the relevancy towards the novice user, easing the reader through some difficult topics pretty seamlessly. As opposed to many books that read like stereo instucitons, this book is perfect for a user who wants to know about authorware fast, wihtout having to sift through useless material just placed there for "filler."

A great book for classes. I reccomeded it to several teachers for teaching authorware in a class enviroment. Covered all of the necessary topics in a smooth, straight-forward process. I expecially like the real-world examples used to illstrate each of the projects and practices worked on. It seems to focus a little too much in some of the theory at times, but for a beginner, this book is definitly the way to go.

I found this book to be really great. I especialy liked the outlining of steps for each of the practices and in-depth detail of those practices. I also really liked the design of the cover so you could open the book and leave it open beside your monitor in a tent-style. Big space saver for those of us with small cubes!

A Strong beginning for any Authorware user. This is the place to go if you need a quick start on Authorware. I was able to read this book and develop my first CBT in a week. (A small one!) But unlike many manuals, who just go over the commands, this actually shows you in real-word examples how to use those commands. Well worth every penny! I hope the next book is as useful as this one!
