Editorial Reviews

Jay Nelson
Real World Adobe GoLive 4, by Jeff Carlson and Glenn Fleishman, is probably the best book that could ever be written about Adobe GoLive (formerly CyberStudio). Aside from covering everything you could reasonably want to know about how to use GoLive, it's also a pleasure to read. The authors obviously enjoy the creative process as much as they enjoy using GoLive. If you use GoLive on a professional basis, you owe it to yourself to read this book-you'll feel at peace again.
Design Tools Monthly
An in-depth guide for novice to advanced users, with sections on basics, pages, sites, and advanced topics such as newer and browser- dependent features. Readers will learn how to write JavaScripts, discover settings that optimize their work, and add new life to old sites with advanced GoLive import techniques. Appendices offer information on Macintosh-specific issues. The author runs a web design company. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
