This book is well organized and easy to read. I'm no "dummy" and this is a great resource for those of us just getting into CS5 and for those who are using DW for the first time. The "I am so glad I have this book" moment came when a client asked me to take over their website and make it XHTML compliant. After looking at the code, I realized their last designer used HTML markup for everything and didn't use CSS at all. My challenge was to find an efficient way to convert the pages from HTML to XHTML. At the end of Book IV, Chapter 4 is information about a Command that does just that. Whew! Had I not had this book, I'd be using find/replace for days.
Having an 800 page book by my side is great for discovering useful DW features that save me time and my clients' money. For example, I read in Book II "Mastering the Basics" that there's a Paste Special command that allows me to strip out text from sources like Word. Again, another time-saving feature I would not have discovered on my own. Additionally, learning about DW's preview for mobile devices is going to become critical for me as clients insist their pages look good on smart phones.
I've seen some of Sue Jenkins' video training and enjoy her teaching style immensely. Having her name on the cover was reassuring and her personality and teaching style come through perfectly in print. Sue is as professional a designer as she is an excellent teacher. There aren't many people that are career professionals and patient teachers. Her co-author, Richard Wagner, has a different style and handles the job of explaining the technical and programming-focused chapters of this book to non-programmers very well. While he may not be as friendly as Sue, he is just as effective and he definitely knows his stuff. I have an upcoming project where I will benefit directly from his lessons in Books VII and VIII. I can spend a little less on a dedicated programmer by setting up a couple databases and coding some interactive forms to handle the data myself. Was it worth the cost of the book and the time reading it? Absolutely.
The text is mercifully succinct and drives the step-by-step instructions that are as easy to follow chronologically as they are to skip ahead and reference back to. Don't be mislead by its ease of use however - this thing is huge and should should easily satisfy both total beginners - as well as users aspiring to create or incorporate very complex design / functions.
Adobe would do itself well to buy the rights to this book and bundle it with the software - it's really that good, and at least in my case - that essential. Nice job!
