One of the first "idiot" books was "How to Repair your VW . . . " It was great. "Start by finding the front of the car. That's where the engine is." Something like that. The material in the sections of this 8-in-1 manual is not presented logically and assumes a knowledge that a real beginner likely does not possess. Step-by-step keystroke examples of the basics would have helped greatly.

This book is great for the beginner Adobe program user but would not really apply to the more advanced user. I found it helped me solve a couple of problems and I enjoy reading it, but I really need something that is much more in depth. The book, "Dreamweaver: The Missing Manual" is a great book for those who have some experience with Dreamweaver and has a lot of creative ideas. It was written for CS3 but still is great for CS4, which is what I have. I would recommend this book over the Dummies book unless you are a novice.
