Real World Adobe GoLive 4 is less like a step-by-step tutorial and more like a manual, but one that tells you how things do work, not necessarily how they should work. It fills in the areas where the official GoLive manual falls short; it's the stuff you need to know after you've become familiar with all the palettes and menus.
Authors Fleishman and Carlson recommend not trying to read the book straight through. In the introduction, they outline which chapters are best for beginners, intermediate users (which they believed they were before writing the book), and advanced users (which they believe they are now). They suggest readers scan the book first, focusing on chapters that answer their most pressing questions, and then stay up all night reading the whole book. As they put it, they find learning easier if you "balance efficiency with learning curve ... learn a little and then sit down and produce." For an intermediate user, it's very gratifying to jump to the chapter on grids, for example, and finally realize why things didn't work exactly as expected.
One particularly useful chapter shows how to import, revise, and manage an existing Web site that may have been created by hand-coding or by another HTML editor. The book is loaded with tips and insights and, weighing in at around two and a half pounds, it's a heavyweight in more ways than one. --Angelynn Grant

One bonus is the authors are very active and approachable in the forums and mailing lists dealing with Adobe GoLive and they have a web site devoted to the book and the program with updates, news, helpful hints and tons of resources.
Instead, we delve deeply into all the basic, intermediate, and advanced features, assuming the reader has some knowledge of HTML (not extensive) and some knowledge of how the Web works (again, not extensive). This book is aimed at folks who use the program for production, and who are moving to it as a tool to help them do their job.
The book that the reviewer below from D.C. needs is Molly Holzschlag and Stephen Romaniello's title "Mastering Adobe GoLive 4" (ISBN 0782126049) which is aimed at people with little or no knowledge of building Web sites with any program or using HTML.
I hope the review below doesn't discourage anyone from buying our title who is looking for solid, production-oriented, detailed tips. The book has illustrations and screen captures on almost every page. (A few sections that are more about background issues, like FTP, are a little heavier on text. But our "basics" section has several illustrations per page. Our Advanced section on using Actions has step-by-step examples with illustrations, too.)
You can see a sample chapter of the book at our Web site and at the publisher's Web site.
The reader is guided from one keystroke to another without knowing at that time what he is doing. You will not get the whole picture. You will not be told how page and site design and construuction works. However, at least once on a page you are reminded that the return key on a mac keybard is the enter key on a microsoft keyboard and that the control key on a microsoft keyboard is the command key on an apple keyboard
But the worst is yet to come: obviously in order to make up for their incompetence in writing a book, the authos tried to be funny. Paragraphs such as 'Zat is not my dog' or phrases such as 'some browsers had a tendency to crash if you even mentioned the word "frames" within earshot of the computer' would have warned me if I had have the chance to review this book before purchasing it.
Several times you will be reading how 'pretty cool' the point and shoot method is. But which file of two is the reference and which file is citing the reference after you pretty cool pointed and shooted is something you have to find out yourself. And that will give you the chance to find out by yourself how to remove unwanted references.
At least half of the text is garbadge of that kind, stuff everyone knows or sruff nobody wants to know. Even if a certain informtion is part of the text the average reader won't find it. The avarage reader does not have the time and patience to read all that complacent, childish, sometimes embarresing amateur poetry of regard their playing with computers as being the 'real world' (the title of the book).
Carlson and his friends should have written another book. I am not sure which one. Probably a book about the wonderful world of computer toys with all its pretty cool programs and funny features where there is, however, 'never enough coffee' but definetly enough fun all day long.
RealWorld GoLive 4 is a perfect companion to learning how the software works. It is an easy read for those learning how to assemble a web page (or web site). I would suggest using this book as your main guide for learning GoLive and fall back on Adobe's manual for secondary information.
If there is a 'beef' I have with RealWorld, its that I feel it should have come with a CD-ROM containing various 'how to' & tutorials (i.e. tutorials on tables, forms, CCS, etc.). I have learned a great deal from similar CD-equipped tutorial books (i.e. Inside Photoshop by Bouton & Bouton). RealWorld is a perfect example of a book needing an accompanying CD-ROM for even an easier (and speedier) understanding of what is essentially the learning of a new language - the language of the web. Maybe the authors can include some "QuickTime" examples on their web site.
Nevertheless, get this book! It will be money well spent.
