Dreamweaver CC is a powerful tool for designing all kinds of websites, from those with simple, static pages to interactive, media-driven sites for desktop, laptop, and mobile devices. But the program still doesn’t include a printed guide to all its amazing capabilities. That’s where this Missing Manual comes in. With hands-on tutorials and thorough coverage of every feature, you’ll learn how to build, deploy, and manage sites whether you’re an experienced designer or just getting started.
The important stuff you need to know:
Dive into page design. Quickly learn the basics of working with text, images, links, and tables.
Edit pages in Live view. Dynamically add elements to live pages and immediately see the results.
Design once, and for all. Build fluid-grid sites that reformat themselves for desktop, tablet, and mobile browsers.
Examine page structure. Troubleshoot problems using the new Element Quick View to see the hierarchy of HTML elements.
Style with ease. Use the enhanced CSS Designer to copy and paste styles, set margins and padding, and add or delete selectors.
Enhance Dreamweaver. Add new program features with Add-Ons that integrate directly with Dreamweaver.
Bring your pages to life. Use jQuery UI to add interactive page elements like tabbed panels, collapsible content sections, and dialog boxes.
Create universal pages. Avoid browser incompatibility issues by using surefire workarounds.

Comments about oreilly Dreamweaver CC: The Missing Manual:
O'Reilly books have been a mainstay in my professional library for years. In fact, I have used them as textbook and reference support in my undergraduate and graduate university courses in Computer Science and in my software developer work. I also currently have an ongoing subscription to Safari Books Online (www.safaribooksonline.com) which I highly recommend to anyone teaching a technical curriculum or doing software development. I use the online resources every day. Based on that, I also buy hard copy of the books that show best practices and that provide reference material I need at hand. safaribooksonline provides books and videos from many different publishers including O'Reilly. It is a major technical library which is available 24/7 that I can use anywhere I am including my primary work environment.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
