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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
