Once I reach that level I would get back to this book and integrate its information into my experience. I am sure the book has all the information, but for the time being, I will keep it as a reference.By that time I might change my review level
After looking around I found Expression Web and downloaded the trial version. After a few tutorials it seemed like something I could teach myself so I bought another book, bought the program and began. It didn't take me long to discover the other book just wasn't thorough enough and didn't cover much more than the basics.
I read some of the reviews here and decided to buy this one. I love it! I read the first 15 or so chapters in a weekend, worked along with the text so I would absorb it and now I'm almost done with my site--the first of 3 so far!
The two programs the author includes on the CD have been a big help as well. The dropdown menus are wonderful.
I will definitely look for future books by this author.
It serves that purpose pretty well. I haven't taken the time to really dig in and read it all the way through. I pick and choose the info I want when I need it. I find I spend more time working directly in the CSS style sheets now, and have found books that have helped me learn CSS more helpful.
That said, I would recommend this book to anyone that wants a complete overview and has some trepidation about just jumping into Expression Web. I chose it from a list of potential books and have not been disappointed. It serves its purpose with me.
