It's a very good reference book, and has quite a few good tips throughout the chapters. There are some little mistakes in a few chapters, that can make you bang you head before figuring it out why the pages aren't loading right. I'd recomend it to anyone that is learning ColdFusion and for intermediate users that want to learn a few extra things.
