"Second Runner Up ColdFusion Developer's Journal Readers Choice Book Awards, 2002"

"An excellent reference for experienced Coldfusion developers, providing answers and solutions along with numerous examples. There is a greater range of topics in this book than there is in most other ColdFusion books."
-- San Antonio Macromedia & ColdFusion UG, August 2002

"'Programming ColdFusion' is an invaluable resource, covering all major issues related to programming ColdFusion 5.0 Web applications. Its 24 chapters and 4 appendices (totaling 953 pages) guarantees that even the most experienced ColdFusion programmers will benefit from reading it...if you are looking for a subject relevant to developing applications with the help of ColdFusion, you will find it here."
--Andreas Veglis, IEEE Distributed Systems, July 2002

"Rob Brooks-Bilson's book, 'Programming ColdFusion: Creating Dynamic Web Applications' has the uncanny ability to discuss advanced ColdFusion development techniques in such a way as to make it clear to beginners, while remaining thorough enough for more advanced developers. This book is particularly valuable to developers as it covers several advanced programming techniques that are rarely covered in these types of books (i.e. RegEx). Within minutes of perusing through the pages of this book I was able to solve several issues I had been pining over for several days."
--Wayne Graham, Williamsburg Macromedia User Group, Aug 2002

"There are about 200 pages devoted to tag and function references in the appendices at the end of the book, which are likely to become dog-eared through repeated use. This book is bulky, and I'm glad to say this is partially because of the generous example code...it is bound to find a place on the bookshelves of many ColdFusion developers. And deservedly so."
--Keith-Schengili-Roberts, Computer Paper

"There's plenty here for more advanced developers...There's also about 200 pages devoted to tag and function references in the appendices at the end of the book, which are likely to become dog-eared through repeated use. This book is bulky and I'm glad to report that this is partly because of the generous amount of example code sprinkled throughout. This is not what I'd call a beginner's book on ColdFusion--only developers who already have a basic knowledge of the language will get the most out of it. having said that, it is bound to find a place on the bookshelf of many ColdFusion developers. And deservedly so."
--Keith Schengili-Roberts, Computer Paper, March 2002

"ColdFusion is a comprehensive tutorial to ColdFusion that puts all of the material necessary to master this scripting language between two covers."
--compbbookreview.com, March 2002

"The material is presented in a straightforward, no-nonsense manner with an excellent balance of overview discussion, sample code, and screen shots. ColdFusion is a tag-based language and there are plenty of fine examples of how to make the most of it. An appendix also provides a reference to the entire dialect. This tutorial is a great tool for mastering ColdFusion."
--Stephen W. Plain, amazon.com

"ColdFusion is a very flexible tool, and there is plenty to cover. Like all O'Reilly books this is a detailed reference guide, with plenty of sample code--written for developers by developers. You will find the listings of CFML tags and functions invaluable. It's clearly written but highly technical. If you are getting started with ColdFusion and want a thorough reference on creating Web applications, this is it."
