Excellent - paid for itself within days,
This review is from: Microsoft Expression Web 4 In Depth (Paperback)This is EXACTLY the book I wanted.
I'd bought the Expression Web4 program and was really struggling to learn to use it properly by myself. It's a complex full-featured program with a lot to know. I've only had this book for a few days, but it's already more than justified its cost by demystifying heaps of things about how EW works. I've already learned a whole lot of things I hadn't understood, plus a number of incredibly useful, quick and nifty (not to mention efficient!) ways of doing things that I'd been going about the looooonnng way around.
I very much like the way it's laid out, and Jim writes very clearly and explains well. Heaps of helpful examples. I do recommend registering the book with informit, so you get access to a full PDF copy of the book in colour (which helps illustrate even better how some of Expression Web works, highlighting tags, etc) plus codes, and more to use with the book.
I disagree entirely that this book is 'not for... Read more

Surprisingly good, but has weaknesses,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Microsoft Expression Web 4 In Depth (Paperback)Despite the advice to use this like a reference and look up things of interest, I am reading it "like a book" from front to back. Here's why: I started writing HTML before the web (as a way to make customer service scripts easier for telephone reps to use (click the term in question and read more about the topic)). I was an early user of Front Page, beginning when it was part of MS Office, and continuing through FP 2000, FP 2002, and am still using FP 2003 for several websites. I had looked at Expression Web when it was introduced, noticed all the missing features that I used in FP, and never made the switch. Now, a customer's web host has dropped FP server extensions, and I'm forced to use Expression Web.
Microsoft has never bothered to create a really easy transition path from Front Page to Expression Web, unfortunately. I'm sure that someplace they have a secret list of exactly what breaks when you migrate from FP to EW, but I've not found it. They condemn you to... Read more

not for those inexperienced with Expression Web.,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Microsoft Expression Web 4 In Depth (Paperback)I think this book is for those who are experienced with Expression Web. It is a good reference book for anyone that is basically competent in Expression Web and needs a reminder on occasion how to perform a task, or wants to learn how to perform any new features.
The procedures are given matter-of-factly with very few samples. In my opinion, any one buying this book to go from newby (like me) to competent will be very disappointed.
Again, it is a good reference book for reminders on how to accomplish a procedure that you may have forgotten or are weak in. Definitely not a book for beginners!!!
I rated it low to alert beginners that this might not be their best choice.
