"One of the beauties of the Missing Manuals is that there is always something new to discover and the research is quite thorough...I kept finding snippets of information, in the way of Tips or Notes, that would give just that bit extra."
-- , Bangkok Post
"Not dry or difficult, relational theory, calculations, and scripting become interesting to average users. You will be surprised how FileMaker Pro productivity benefits from this book. It is recommended, particularly if you've "played" with FileMaker but feel awed by the application's capabilities."
-- , Spartanburg Mac User Group (SMUG)
"From beginner to advanced topics, Filemaker Pro 8 covers it all using easy language, black and white screen shot examples on almost every page, and plenty of modeling examples."
-- , California Bookwatch
"There are a lot of good books, but I keep returning to the Missing Manual series because they are inexpensive, easy to read and full of cool tricks and tips."
-- , The South Bay Apple Mac User Group
"I have never seen a manual for any program, hardware or OS which is anywhere close to this series in its helpfulness to the reader. Anyone other than the well trained techs can find this book valuable."
-- , Des Moines Macintosh User's Group
"The greatest feature of this book is the organization of the subject matter. It is a joy for the reader as he/she progresses from page-to-page and chapter-to-chapter to build their knowledge, feature by feature. After seeing the possibilities available, anyone with data that needs organizing, is sure to get excited about the potential use of FileMaker Pro 8.5 by reading this book!"

"I have reviewed quite a number of Missing Manual books and I am always impressed with them. David Pogue is a Mac master and the depth of his knowledge shines through."
