The Barnes & Noble Review
New to Dreamweaver or Flash? You’re not alone: With the new Version 8 upgrades, everyone’s got something to learn. What’s more, you’ve got Master Visually Dreamweaver 8 and Flash 8 to help you. Look up any task, and you’ll find two pages of easy directions, follow-along screen shots, and a batch of tips for gaining even deeper mastery.

This oversized book will take you much further than you’d expect. Sure, it covers the basics: quickly setting up Dreamweaver sites, using Flash objects, drawing tools, and so forth. But you’ll also find a full section on the advanced features that make Dreamweaver so efficient in production environments, and a chapter on database-enabling web sites. On the Flash side, there’s even a solid introduction to ActionScript. Haven’t upgraded to V8 yet? You’ll find trial versions on CD, together with the complete book as a thankfully easy-to-carry PDF. Bill Camarda, from the June 2006 Read Only
