    OK book but somewhat useful

    Maybe it was because I was expecting more than what I was able to get out of the book, but overall the book was moderately satisfying. That is to say that although I was able to learn many concepts, features, etc., I wasn't able to start from scratch and build a basic, nice looking website. In fact, I am looking for another book to teach me more of what I am looking for which is a basic website design where I can be familiar with all features while being fluent in basic design. I am not a professional and use Dreamweaver CS3 for basic design as a hobby and on the side to make a website I've been wanting to do for a long time. Overall, this book did not help me accomplish my goal.
