I usually read all of the new CF books that come out, being a professional CF developer, and this book is one of the best I have read for some time. I have also like Ben Forta's books in the past. This book, however, is quite good at getting right to the point on what someone really needs to know about ColdFusion. It is also great in that it gives real world examples. The only bad thing I could say is that chapter subjects could be in different order. It also has good Appendices full of references. I recommend it.

This book is fantastic! It is easy to follow because the Author is a great teacher and he writes telling it like it is. I'm a web developer and this guy gives you lots of code to use but also shows you exactly why it works. You never feel left there hanging like when reading some books. I felt like the Author was sitting next to me telling me what was going on. I didn't need all that jazz about web servers in the early chapter, but you can skip that. It was great.
