Creative Suite 4 Web Premium for Dummies is a fairly good overview of a very complex software suite. Unfortunately, it did not adequately and clearly tell me how to create a web site or utilize photoshop. It is sometimes helpful in answering a specific question. I have found much more help from individual books about Dreamweaver or Photoshop.
