This MM certainly contains the basics for beginners, but also callout Notes and Tips that help an intermediate user such as myself. Just a couple of chapters into the book, I have already learned enough to become more proficient and efficient with Dreamweaver as I work on my term project and future "real life" web sites.
As with all Missing Manuals, you don't get a bare-bones, cook-book approach. Some people might prefer "just the steps, Ma'am," but I like the running commentary and explanations in the MM, as well as the little tips and bug alerts.
If you like to understand the whys and wherefores of the software you are working with, and to truly understand what the program can and cannot do, then this is probably the book for you.
I couldn't figure out how to do a site-wide spell-check. I quickly found it (page 96). The book clearly lead me through the options and what is possible (and not possible). The same page has a great sidebar on a subject that had taken me a lot of time wasted with Google searches to understand - bold/italics/strong/em. Here is plain English was a few paragraphs that explained the HTML history/philosophy and then gave practical advice. Fantastic.
If you are brand-new to HTML this shouldn't be your first book. You need to understand the very basics of web page coding. If you've used Dreamweaver 8 hours a day for the last year and want to just understand what's new in CC, this is not the best book. But for the rest of us, the 99% in-between, this is the best book you can buy. It's fantastic.
Dreamweaver is one of those programs that can do SO much, that the learning curve tends to be quite high. Having just moved into Dreamweaver CC with my subscription to Adobe's Creative Cloud subscription service, I was hoping to find a good manual that dealt with all of the Dreamweaver basics, as well as the advanced functions in CC. If you own one manual on Dreamweaver, this should be the one.
What I like most is that I can quickly find instructions on how to use any feature in Dreamweaver, thanks to a great index, and great writing. If you're JUST now learning Dreamweaver, I would also suggest having some sort of supplementary book on writing HTML5 code. This book mostly assumes that you have more than a scant knowledge of HTML5.
About the size of a phone book, it sits on my desk next to the other manuals I like to keep at my fingertips, and I have found I've already reached for it a dozen times in the last couple of days to find some obscure piece of info, and was able to find it right away.
I recently have cause to get back into web design for education purposes and got the Creative Cloud for the year. On the surface, there's a lot familiar with the old and the new versions. But I suspected there was a huge amount I was missing. This book absolutely confirms that.
After spending some time with this, I can say it is very helpful in getting me up to speed. It's very thorough and well-written, approachable in scope without talking down to the reader. I wish the chapters were more uniform in length--my chapter a day goal brings some wildly different time demands. But, overall, the content presented is consistent with the themes, and is good about introducing and reinforcing lessons throughout.
There's no DVD, with the lessons downloadable, which allows for a somewhat cheaper cost.
