Meet the Author

Greg Holden has had Microsoft FrontPage very much on his mind, this book following on the heels of E-Commerce Essentials with Microsoft FrontPage, also published by Microsoft Press. Greg cut his computer book-writing teeth in 1995 with Publishing on the World Wide Web. Since then he has developed a following with books like Starting an Online Business for Dummies. Greg has created online courses on Microsoft Windows 2000 and Microsoft Word 2000, is a regular columnist for CNET, and has written articles for Forbes, PC World, and Computer User. Outside of the computer world, Greg has published poems and short stories and, most recently, Literary Chicago: A Book Lover's Tour of the Windy City, published by Lake Claremont Press.

When his fingers aren't tapping computer keys or stained with the ink of the antique fountain pens he collects, Greg's hands are busy rehabbing his house on the North Side of Chicago. His greatest joy is not the sound of hammer, saw, or hard drive, but the laughter of his two daughters, Zosia and Lucy.

    Finally, a good resource!

    Faster Smarter FrontPage is immediately useful and has lots more advanced tips than I expected. Great for beginners and intermediate. Great design advice too! So glad someone finally clued into what I really needed.

    Faster Smarter FrontPage 2003

    Fantastic book. I have learned so much. The first chapter even had lots of tricks and tips. I don't know where the previous reviewer was coming from but I found the book to be very good. In 350 pages it provided everything I needed. My web site is up and running and I have had lots of positve comments. Kudos to the authors on a job well done.

    I can only think of two words....Great book!

    This book hooked me on the first chapter. I think it will do the same for you. It is a fun read as well as a clearly fantastic book! The authors style makes it so easy to learn. Every discussion details good design as well as how to.

    Great book; great authors!

    Greg Holden is a CNET columnist. William Stanek is an award-winning author. The two are a stellar group of Frontpage experts. They've written a very useful and fun book on Frontpage 2003. I have already learned many new tipes that make Frontpage more fun and easy to use.

    Maybe Faster - But Not Smarter

    This book would almost certainly have to be a disappointment for anyone. If you are just starting to work with websites this book will give you just enough info to get you in trouble and lost; if you are experienced it will completely disappoint. Since the book is by Microsoft Press, it shouldn't be a surprise that it promotes every possible Microsoft service to combine with this FrontPage 2003 product. While the book does a nice job of quickly and concisely presenting the how-to of simple processes - that's all it does. Even when it warns that there can be problems, it doesn't say anything about solving the problems - and it usually seems to assume there just couldn't be much of a problem because you must be using all new Microsoft products and be on Microsoft servers - preferably through their own facilities. I purchased the book with a lot of web experience and as a user of Macromedia Dreamweaver thinking I might find some of the new FrontPage 2003 features usable and move some of my work to it. While a couple of pages mention ASP (Active Server Pages) it is very brief. Working with existing sites and content is not mentioned; techniques used with ASP are not mentioned; no specifics of any kind are mentioned with respect to how FrontPage 2003 works or what type of code it generates. This book would have you believe you just go through the simple menu items and everything else magically happens - no underlying code or processes that could either go wrong or that you might want to change or be aware of. Even the much touted integration with data access and XML is only mentioned briefly - offering no idea how or if it can be utilized on anything other than a SharePoint Server. If you are only a rank beginner and plan to work only on Microsoft servers and do a simple site and follow the templates and use all Microsoft products and are fortunate enough not to have any sort of problems with anything - this book might help you get off to a nice start. If you don't understand something or encounter a problem, you will need to look elsewhere for assistance. If, for some strange reason, you want to understand how anything works and what processes are generated or want to integrate features from ASP or do anything that isn't automatic with FrontPage - this isn't the book for you.
