This book is missing something - like useful content
In a 750 page book, you'd think they would have a lot of in-depth information, but this book severly lacks in depth of coverage of every topic. Most concepts are only mentioned in a page or two, then the author moves on to something else. This book is poorly organized and the index uses only the official names for things, making it difficult to find anything. It's easier to find the same information in the Dreamweaver MX help menu. I'll stick with the "Bible" series next time.

Another Incomplete Reference
Anyone involved in programming has bought a number of these books. Complete References. Granted, this is not billed as a tutorial, but wouldn't a "Complete Reference" take you from uploading a site to creating applications? Doesn't happen. It happens, but only with specific examples at the writer's discression. Cross referencing terms at the end of the book assumes you use the same CF jargon, that if you did speak it, would preclude your need for a fifty dollar book. Now I will look for an O'Reilly book that explains in well constructed English what I need to know to learn ColdFusion.
