    Not for the Novice!!

    Chapter 1 and first part of Chapter 2 are useful but from there you need to be more than a novice, and that is what I am. Chapter 2 is Titled: 'Build a New Web Page' but it jumps from creating a web page with templates to importing files and folders without getting to the basics of page creation. If you don't know the basics do not waste your money on this book. GIVE ME THE 'DUMMIES'!!!

    Not useful

    Too much telling, not enough showing. Lots and lots of details about every option in the program, but very little showing me how to use those options. After reading it twice, I still don't know where to begin to create the page I want.
