Revised Edition Nearly Perfect?

I have just worked through the whole book and have learnt a lot. There are still a few errors. Lesson 9 I was missing a ticker tape image and some people using Windows in lesson 13 have trouble with the "Black Bar" but using Icons instead of Icon frames solves this (View palette Display tab)(p481). All in all a very good book and certainly much better than nothing. Still after the huge outcry about the very flawed first edition it should have been perfect. Also try Adobe GoLive CS: Tips and Tricks Adam Pratt, Lynn Grillo, together the two books are a good team.

An invaluable reference for web development

Put simply, it is the definitive guide. This book starts with the basics of the language and then progresses through each individual piece of it in detail. It takes the time to point out the differences in implementation between browsers, which is very helpful, especially when using the book as a reference during debugging. The only thing I found lacking in the book were short, easy to understand examples of the language in action. While it does have enough code snippets in it to illustrate the general points, it does not show some of the more interesting parts of the language.

Brilliant little book of inspiration

I'm fussy about books in general, and I'm even fussier about books for my business. This book represents money well spent. It is so small, but don't let that deceive you, it is packed with ideas that springboard you into your own creations. I begin looking through the book when I feel I've hit a wall with ideas... soon I say to myself "hey, that is a neat way to handle things, I wonder if I could adapt that..." and soon enough I have my own design for the client. I have never seen any of my designs turn out like cookie cutters of the book's concepts...but I have had some good inspiration from it! I love the way this book gets me thinking.

Letter to Bruce

I just found out about your books from a Java programmer in my office, who said your book was required reading for every programmer in the company where he worked. You truly have listened to your students, and I particularly mean the non-verbal.
Your writing style is among the clearest I've ever read, you always "EXPLAIN", one the biggest things missing from most of all other documents. You're not only teaching me Java and OOP, but your giving me the background of other languages, programming in general, and an understanding of how the internet and many of its pieces operate. To think of all trees that have been destroyed - only to create confusing, incomplete gibberish on so many topics. If only you could rewrite all the other documents ever written ...
I will definitely buy your books and CDs. Thx so much for being there for guys like me!
