    Won't tell you how to make a website

    GoLive is a complex, confusing program. This book adds to the confusion. It does not do a good job of walking you through the process of making a webpage. It tells you what everything does, basically things you could discover by just playing around with the program. But it gives very little guidance as to actually constructing a website from all the garbage that Adobe spreads all over the page. The authors are obviously in love with the program, but they give the reader little reason to love it or the book. After spending a couple weeks with this book and the program, I ditched the book and am searching for better guide.

    Finally a book for GoLive that's very good

    Being a GoLive consultant, I am always answering the question: 'Are there any good books on GoLive?' And for the longest time (actually years!), I had to shrug my shoulders and say, 'Well, no. Not really.' But since RWAGL4 came out in late 1999, my answer has changed. Just two days ago I said, 'Yes. Yes there is a good book. Actually, it's very good.' And the most recent edition -- RWAGL5 -- is even better GoLive 5.0, I believe, has a *deceptively* intuitive interface. And when you start trying to do something, it's easy to get lost in a sea of palettes and windows. RWGL5 clears up the interface kudzu within the first chapter. Actually, as the book notes, one of the co-authors is sympathetic to new users because he struggled (so did I) when he first started using CyberStudio -- GoLive's ancestor. If you're an intermediate or advanced user, you'll like how this book is organized. It's easy to find just what you're looking for. There's a brief overview section noting the major topics; a VERY detailed table of contents, and a (finally!) useful cross-referenced index. [If you've ever tried to find anything in a GoLive (or CyberStudio) manual, you'll love this.] Everything is covered in great detail, but the writing style keeps you interested and engaged. The authors obviously enjoyed writing this. They handle more advanced topics (Animation, JavaScript, Cascading Style Sheets) using apt metaphors, countless annotated screen shots, and real world examples to help you get things done quickly -- and well. And if you get stuck, they have a useful web site and an active discussion list. (They actually answer your questions. :) But for me, some of the best nuggets are the scores of tips, side bars, and errata. The authors extract the most useful features, tips, and shortcuts -- things that you would never discover without lots of time spent in forums and mailing lists. I own every book, manual, video, and interactive CD-ROM ever written or produced about GoLive and CyberStudio. I've long since packed them away in boxes. Except for two: RWAGL4 and RWAGL5. For now at least, they have no peer. Not even close.
