I could rave on and on about this book, and how it saved me so much time and hassle, not to mention hair... but in the end it would devolve to waffling on about it's sheer brilliance and ease of use.
The easiest way to tell you about how much of an asset this book is, is to simply say "You should have it, if you use this software suite. because if you don't buy the book, you'll have a lot of sleepless nights staring at the screen swearing like a sailor with a stubbed toe."
The tips and tricks, the shortcuts, and the oh-so-obvious-in-hindsight bits are worth twice the RRP of the book, and the bonus bits, warnings and cautions just add value icing to a solid common-sense cake. Covering all of the applications in enough detail to give you a good grounding, but not so much as to make the book into a small windowless building, you have all the basic tools to get yourself comfortable with the suite and how it works as a set of stand-alone applications as well as a coherant interactive development platform.
Overall, from whipping up a basic webpage based on a CSS stylesheet, right through to a fully interactive Web 2.0 webapp, you'll find the grounding you need between the covers of this excellent reference book. For anyone who isn't a veteran user of Adobe/Macromedia applications, but who wants to get into the swing of things, this book is simply a 'Must Have' on the shelf. You could spend months trawling the 'net for the stuff you can find in here, at your nearest quality book retailer.

This is the tale, I swear it is true,
of a very strange creature called the Ar-chew
The tale begins at the foot of a tree
with a hollow so narrow it was tricky to see...
Three forest friends find a mysterious, mixed-up creature in a hushed, hollowed hideaway. What a fright they get when they try to come to the rescue!
