Dreamweaver by Tarin Towers
I really like this book. I'm pretty good at computers but I was stumped when trying to learn Dreamweaver on my own. The book breaks learning down in to easy to follow steps, and includes information for MAC users as well, although not as frequently as I'd like. Ms. Towers has tons of personality, and it comes through in her text. Unlike the other reviewer, I like how the book is organzied. It is written very sequentially so that the reader builds upon thier skills, even if this means not learning everything there is to know about a function until a later chapter. The author always notes this, and tells the reader where to skip ahead to if they need the advanced stuff now.

best lookup book
I have 5 dreamweaver books that are all different. Tarin's visual quickstart guide is almost always the first book I reach for trying to find an answer. It is not always there, and it is not always clear, it is not always covering every detail, but it is the book with the least blah blah and the most to the point and step by step instructions on how to get something done. Especially for the price definitely a must have for me.
There are not many screenshots - as opposed to what also the other titles in these series might suggest - so they all should rather be called "The Peachpit QuickSTEP Guides."

As with other Visual Quickstart Guides, this book had me working in no time at all. It covers everything you need to know to get started with Dreamweaver MX and even goes a little deeper for more advanced users.
