A good introduction to Dreamweaver MX
If you're looking for a book to get you started with Dreamweaver MX then buy this book.
I found the book worth the money. It's a quick, easy, enjoyable, and productive book. It's broken into small segments that can be easily read during the typical TV commercial breaks.
I found it quicker and easier to use than trying to go through the built-in Dreamweaver MX tutorial. Even though our Coldfusion MX server isn't ready, there is code and lessons learned that can even be used for Coldfusion 5 projects.
After successfully finishing this book, then venture out and tackle the more complex, harder to comprehend, technical offerings.

Not a Tutorial at All
At the risk of echoing what others have said, this book is not a tutorial at all. It provides information on how to do basic things in Dreamweaver in a kind of haphazard way but provides none of the guided practices or exercises that would qualify it as a tutorial or "teach yourself" book. It is certainly not on par with Sams Teach Yourself Flash MX, a book that I would highly recommend. 90% of what's in this book, you could get from the Help that comes with Dreamweaver, and the Help is at least as intelligible as this book. For what this book offers, the reader would be better off with Que's Using Dreamweaver MX. If you want a "teach yourself" type book, look elsewhere.

As a new Dreamweaver user, I was not pleased with this book at all. The authors approach was unclear and not laid out thoughtfully. I had just gotten through the "Flash in 24 hours" and I was expecting the Dreameaver book to be just as good. Unfortunately ive realized that its not the series, but the author which makes a book great. Im currently half way through and Im now on-line searching for another Dreamweaver book.
