3.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't really do what the Editorial Review says, August 11, 2006
My hope was that the book would do what the Editorial Review said i.e. walk you through the creation of your own website. It does not. It does walk you one by one through every possible menu item etc, although again not in a particularly useful order. As others have said, most of what is there is already available in the online help. It would have been much better to have gone though the process of building a site to show the user all of the steps involved from planning to implementing to refining...

My other major complaint is one of the legibility of the screenshots - of which there are very many. They are presented at a size where it is very difficult to read the text on them, although this is important to understanding the book.

There are other brief niggles, the language is strange in some portions, and there is one point where the author refers the user to a very good online tutorial in German (can't really think why a professional editor would let that get through.)

Lastly, the price is rather high for a computer book - maybe it would be better value if a real example based tutorial were added.
