What PageMill does best is to allow people to build their first web site, to enlarge their web sites, and to manage complex web sites

Title page labels this book as a "Complete hands-on guide to creating and managing dynamic Web sites."

It is not the fault of author Daniel Gray that the book left me wondering why I had spent the money to buy it. It is not worth its price. Adobe PageMill is so easy to use that you can learn it on your own, with Adobe's own book. Or just practice a bit with the software, ask a friend a few questions, and save your money. You do not need an aftermarket book.

Coriolis sells other useful books and Daniel Gray has written other informative titles. It is just that you don't need any extra book to handle Adobe PageMill. If you are keen to learn more and upgrade your skills, move up to GoLive, but here you need every aftermarket book you can get your hands on. GoLive has a steep learning curve.

But you need Adobe GoLive (former CyberStudio GoLive) or Macromedia Dreamweaver if you want that class of Internet site. PageMill is for getting started and learning how to do a web site.

Most people prefer to avoid Microsoft products (why support a carnivorous monopoly) and Adobe PageMill is a pleasant alternative to what Bill Gates wants you to buy.

If you wish to do commercial web development, you should aspire to master Macromedia's Dreamweaver.
