"Jam packed with tables, codes, lists and all kind of tips. I'd recommend this book for the intermediate to advanced user that wants to go beyond the intermediate level of using Dreamweaver."--Joyce J. Evans, November 2002

"This is by far, the best book I've read on Dreamweaver! There is really so many great things to say about this book, I don't know where to begin..This particular book is great at providing everything you want or need to know about Dreamweaver, including great features, tips and tricks if you are an intermediate to advanced user. You also need to have familiarity with some code to benefit from its explanations. If you have trouble using some Dreamweaver features, read this book! To benefit most from this book, you must read it like a novel, page by page, from front to back. Find your favorite sitting place and read it for pleasure. It's well written, concise, and easy to understand. This book should be called, 'Everything You Need to Know about Dreamweaver'; I wouldn't have passed the Macromedia Dreamweaver Certification Exam and received my MMCP (Macromedia Certified Professional) status without it."
--Elaine Chou, Williamsburg Macromedia User Group, August 2002

"Heather Williamson and Bruce Epstein have written a very thorough and comprehensive book...Williamson and Epstein bring the reader step by step through the process of setting up and maintaining a site with Dreamweaver. They accomplish this with a combination of logical instructions supplemented by screenshots to paint a clear picture of the procedures. For web programmers, the book introduces Dreamweaver's code library and validation features. It also shows you tips, tricks, and time-savers you can use to design or keep your content up to date, either page-by-page or on a site-wide scale...Before I read it, I considered myself to be an advanced user of Dreamweaver; when I started reading, however, I soon realized that I rarely tapped into the full power of Dreamweaver. There are so many features in the program that the book revealed to me for the first time...This book is a must have for any conscientious web publisher."

"We've grown to respect O'Reilly's Nutshell series of books for their in-depth yet accessible nature, and for their cool animal covers. [This book] covers the basics well, but doesn't shirk more advanced subjects either...If you're looking for a reference guide that won't weigh the equivalent of ten house bricks, this is well work purchasing."
