An advanced book for an advanced application
Warning! If you are not familiar with OOP coding, or have weak HTML skills, do not start with this book.
That said, as usual, Macromedia has produced a book that opens doors to tools making one of their already awesome programs even better!!
I will let others go through describing chapter by chapter what makes this book so helpful. I did want to be sure to warn off anyone looking for a beginning book on ColdFusion. If that is what you need, starting with Dreamweaver MX: Training from the Source or The Web Application Contruction Kit (Fourth Edition) is very thorough. ColdFusion MX: Training from the Source will make much more sense once you understand how and why it works the way it does.

Not thrilled with this book!!
I purchased this book because I have become comfortable with "Training From The Source" series. I feel the author/author's could have done a much better job explaining why and how rather then writing we don't have enough room for that.... I was left with way to many questions when I finished the book and had to buy Cold Fusion MX Web Application Construction Kit (Fifth Edition) to help me. If you are having problems with code not working from the authors directions, check the finished code. Unfortunately you will have to do this more then once.
