Inaccurate Content and Too Simple,
This review is from: Microsoft Expression Web 2 On Demand (Paperback)I bought this book to try and get a handle on the new features in the product. I found some of the information to be inaccurate (not sure if it was based on a version prior to the version that Microsoft released or if the author was just careless) and some of the information that was included is confusing and hard to follow. I do like the quality of the graphics, but that hardly makes up for the other shortcomings.
There are much better choices available. I also bought Jim Cheshire Using Expression Web 2 and I found it to be much better.
One more thing. I'm not sure why the 5-star review that I see on this book appears here. It appears to be a review for the first Expression Web book from this author. It doesn't seem right for that to be used for this book. Strange.

Don't Waste Your Money,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Microsoft Expression Web 2 On Demand (Paperback)This book was shipped to me on June 23, 2008. I picked it up a couple of days later to start learning Expression Web 2. I have been using FrontPage in a simple fashion for ten years. I was reminded in the Introduction to download the example files and workshop files from the Publishers web site.
I found the example files, but there was a note that the workshop files would be available 5/25/08. Bear in mind this was the last week in June that I was reading the note. I purchased this book thinking that these files would teach me how to post a reasonably simple CSS EW2 web site. I emailed Perspection and got a prompt response on 7/16 from the Author, Steve Johnson. Steve said there had been a server crash and they were redoing the files. I thanked him and have continued to check the Perspection site frequently. The note is still there on 9/9/08 indicating they would be available 5/25/08. Maybe they meant 2009.
So I gave up and contacted Amazon's instant call back... Read more

I concur with other reviewers--this book is dreadful,
This review is from: Microsoft Expression Web 2 On Demand (Paperback)I'm trying to catch up with the times after being a 9-year user of FrontPage. I was hoping this manual could help me make the transition but it is just absolutely useless. I know how to open a page and edit text--I need to understand what CSS, ASP.NET, etc. is and how to use them. I have never been so disappointed with a computer manual. Do not waste your money.
