Plumb the Creative Power of Dreamweaver With O'Reilly's "Dreamweaver in a Nutshell"
Sebastopol, CA--Dedicated "To all who sleep, eat, and dream Dreamweaver" by coauthor Heather Williamson, Dreamweaver in a Nutshell (US $29.95), just published by O'Reilly & Associates, delivers exactly what web developers have been dreaming of: a compact and in-depth reference to this powerful, yet often under-utilized, program.
True to its "In a Nutshell" moniker, Dreamweaver in a Nutshell gives developers and designers quick reference both to advanced features as well as those used every day, providing expert guidance in the sometimes nightmarish tasks of creating complex web sites. With Dreamweaver, professional web developers can not only create web pages, but also manage complicated sites, whether they use HTML only, or server-side languages. While it focuses on Dreamweaver, the book also applies to Dreamweaver UltraDev.
"With the growth of the Internet, the Web is going to be the single largest form of sharing information, doing research, and communicating with businesses, customers, friends...if it isn't already that," notes Williamson. "I wrote Dreamweaver in a Nutshell because in my opinion Dreamweaver is one of the best Website development packages available." Concludes Epstein, "Dreamweaver represents the intersection of visual web developers and hard-core web scripters and programmers. It will be a fertile ground for collaboration for many years to come."

"Accessible and to the point, Dreamweaver in a Nutshell is an indispensable reference and offers new insight into the tools you thought you knew. If you use Dreamweaver, this is the one book you should keep close at hand."
