  • We have found the CD a real help!
  • It is really both a good beginners guide to ToolBook, as well a very good source of inspiration & information for more experienced ToolBook users. I spent quite a bit of time with it, and I suspect that I'll keep returning to it for inspiration.
  • I bought the CD and learned a substantial amount in a short period of time.
  • There seemed to be a lot of attention and detail in the tutorial and plenty of demonstrations and interactive experiences for the learner. Overall, we would say that this is a worthy investment. There is really nothing like it on the market and it is sure to become popular quickly.
