      Comments about oreilly FileMaker Pro 14: The Missing Manual:

      Great book, from what I've read so far. I would have rated it 5 star, but to be fair I am only a part way into the book, so a bit early to do that. I feel sure it will carry on getting even better as I wade through all the very detailed, but very easy to understand information. Excellent: wouldn't be without it and if / when an updated version comes out I will buy that one also! Exceeds all expectations.
      Thank you!

        Comments about oreilly FileMaker Pro 14: The Missing Manual:

        I originally purchased the iBook version of this book, but because it has so many pages chocked full of important information, I also recently purchased the hard copy version as well, which is sitting by my computer with color-coded stickies added all through it.

        I use this book just about every day when I am working on my company's databases. It is a must-have for FileMaker beginners and experts alike.

          I use this missing manual line from version nr 8.
          This is the best filemaker description I have ever read.

          I really recommend this book !!!
