I bought Expression Web 2 a year ago along with several books of instructions and bogged down completely. (Don't worry, I'm coming to Expression Web 3 in a minute.) One book told what to do, but not why it was being done (basic theory behind the clicks). Another spent so much time on the why, it never seemed to get to the what, and my eyes glazed over. I'd start working my way through a book, then stop and put it off for awhile, then start again. But by then I'd forgotten what I'd done before. Then I found something by Morten online that made so much sense that when I discovered his book on Expression Web 2, I ordered it immediately. It was so great, that after working through a couple of chapters, I e-mailed Morten to tell him how much I liked it and how helpful it was. That's when I learned that he had a new book coming out on Expression Web 3.

Since I hadn't gone very far in EW2, I ordered an update to Expression Web 3 along with this book. Here's what I love about the book. In chapter 1, Morten shows you the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow -- the completed web site that you will build over the next 24 chapters. Then he goes back and shows you how to make a rainbow. The instruction is clear, friendly, and easy to understand. Even though I'm a novice at web site design and just want to be able to improve my own web sites, I'm confident I can do a project that at a minimum will be decent and professional looking and with a little effort can be quite nice. Thanks Morten

I have been a fan of Sam's for quite awhile. I found this book to be a good step by step of how to use expression web, especially with CSS. My only complaint, is that for the most part, you must do all the lessons in order for future lessons to work. I wish that the folder for each hour could have been updated with the files that were supposed to have been modified in the previous hour. If they were, then you could skip the sections you know, instead of having to complete the whole book. That being said, I have bought two other books, and this book by far is much easier to understand as it's linear progression takes you from start to finish, instead of jumping all over the place.

I was a little nervous about Expression Web 3. It's been 7 years since I worked with MS FrontPage and Dreamweaver. I knew just enough to see what Expression Web was offering but not enough to use it without lots of frustration. Thank goodness for Sam's Teach Yourself. It is straightforward and well-organized. I can move to chapters (or "hours") for step-by-step directions, along with screen shots that make the whole process simple. Expression Web 3 has so many great features. Now, thanks to Sam's Teach Yourself Microsoft Expression Web 3 in 24 Hours, I can actually use them.

I just got this book in the mail recently and found it to be an immediately useful reference for someone who is familiar with coding websites but aims to improve their workflow. I am familiar with Expression Web as well so I was able to jump to the chapters that interested me most and dive right in. I liked that he spent the time to go through CSS very thoroughly for more novice readers.

Morten seems to have found the sweet spot between a good instructional manual and reference guide. I would definetly give this book a high recomendation.

The thing I liked most about Sams Teach Yourself Microsoft Expression Web 3 in 24 Hours is that it starts at the beginning and leads the reader through the various steps of creating the web site illustrated in the book. As a beginner in Expression Web 3 I really appreciated this approach to learning the program. So many computer books (and the other books on Expression Web 3 that I have seen) explain the various features of the program but do not present them in what I would consider to be a logical sequence. Such books might be great for experienced users, and I will probably be using them myself now, but if you are a beginner in Expression Web 3, Sams Teach Yourself Microsoft Expression Web 3 in 24 Hours is a very good starting point.

But that said, learning was a struggle. A month and many, many hours later I have to admit I am disappointed. Some of my difficulty may have been my status as a beginner or my failure to understand the lessons , but there are many errors in the text as well, many examples do not work as shown or explained, and many explanations are confusing or incomplete. I was constantly getting stuck. And I guess that describes my biggest complaint about this book: If you get stuck, you stay stuck. There are not enough illustrations in the book to show what the reader is expected to do, and there was no place to go to see what the code should have been, what I should have done differently, or why my page did not work. A companion DVD or a place on the author's web site with such illustrations and help would have been greatly appreciated. It is also a shame the author or publisher didn't ask a target reader to work his way through the book and point these problems out.

Sorry, but I am NOT a fan of this book. I struggled with it, and found learning the book to be difficult (and thus frustrating). As I moved from chapter to chapter, I would often forget how to do a task I learned in an earlier chapter. And then I found it hard to refer back to an earlier lesson as there was no simple reference framework to rely on.

I just purchased Microsoft Expression Web 3 On Demand. It is organized in a logical way. Each page is a simple explanation of how to do a task with helpful visuals and graphics. The book's cover says "what you need, when you need it." It's a good description of what this book offers. For me, Sam's book made it difficult for me to find what I needed when I wanted it. So I didn't like it, and can't recommend it.
