    Excellent presentation, well written. Visuals are very precise and easy to understand. Highly recommended. Uploaded my first splash page with hosting company three days after reading book.

    Had used this series of books before and knew of their quality.

    Great for beginners~

    I am new to Web Design and this book really helped in understanding Dreamweaver. The screen shots were a lot more helpful than other books out there. I use a MAC and there were a few minor differences but I was quickly able to figure it out.
