This is THE BOOK to learn Cold Fusion from. In addition, it makes an excellent reference for developers of all levels. It's well written and organized. The only thing I've noticed that I think it's missing is more clarification on the CFLOOP tag, but overall it's an outstanding book.

This book has been a great improvement over the previous. Now with the reference CD and extra material, this book is a great pick. Not only does it cover ColdFusion, but also programming methodologies and other technologies that go with ColdFusion.
