Reader Testimonials

“I easily passed my Flare exam using Scott’s power-packed “Little Blue Book”. The MadCap Flare Developer’s Guide is the best Flare book on the market. It goes to the heart of everything about MC Flare. The Developer’s Guide is really the only book you need to start producing quality Flare projects right away. I even carried Scott’s book on vacation, so it was portable, easy-to-read, and targeted to what I needed to deliver my new projects quickly. With a 3 year-old child, it’s hard to get through long books. Brief, informative chapters kept me moving along. I was surprised how much info I picked up within a few short reads and implemented in my Help system. It was instrumental in a large Help conversion project, over 1,000 topics, that I brought over from RoboHelp and styled with no major hiccups. Thanks Scott!”
