    Not ideal for beginners

    In the first few chapters the author does well in getting readers involved in web development and the tools of Microsoft Expression Web, however, as a reader/developer goes a long you find yourself developing one of the writers websites instead of developing a site of your own. I think the writer should have kept things simple and gone down a path encouraging the reader to develop their own site while utilizing the tips of the author to add features, style and so forth.

    Sams "Teach Yourself Microsoft Expression Web 4 in 24 Hours

    Sams "Teach Yourself Microsoft Expression Web 4 in 24 Hours" is well written but the software required to make use of the book is not available.

    Without the software the reader cannot learn anything about Expression Web 4. The book is a complete waste of time and money.
