Dreamweaver CC comes packed with features and a new, online-only home, but it still doesn’t include a printed guide to working in the cloud or tapping the program’s amazing features. That’s where this Missing Manual comes in. With its jargon-free explanations and hands-on tutorials, you’ll learn how to create every kind of website, from single-purpose static sites to interactive, multimedia-driven web dynamos.
The important stuff you need to know:
Soar in the cloud. Get features like dynamic software updates and foolproof file collaboration.
Get clicking with HTML5. Insert new audio/video tags and more, using convenient one-click menu options.
Improve your form. Quickly add HTML5 form elements like email addresses, web URLs, dates, and search fields.
Design in style. Build beautiful pages with ease, using Dreamweaver’s revamped CSS creation and editing tools.
Enrich your characters. Get scores of new type choices with free Adobe-hosted Edge Web Fonts.
Design once, and for all. Use improved fluid-grid layout features to create a responsive design that works across many devices.
Build pages that pop. Use the wildly popular jQuery library and its user-interface toolkit, jQuery UI.

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
