the negative responses ALL stated that there was no mention of Fluid Grid Layouts --- Is this for real?
The above seems to be the only question among a lot of statements and this could only be answered by those having placed the negative responses.
Having said that, Dreamweaver CS6 is is an antiquated version having been superseded by CC, CC2014, CC2014.1, CC2015, CC2015.1 and CC2015.2. In the meantime (since 2012) FGL's have been relegated to 'legacy' status, meaning no more development and use at own peril. To add to that, FGL's have always been very unstable and my advice is to forget it. Try something more modern like Bootstrap, which comes with the later versions of Dreamweaver. See here Bootstrap 3 Tutorial
As a side note, this topic has been marked as a discussion and not a question by the OP.

Ben's right on this one.
FGLs, now Legacy FGLs, were a poor implementation of a great idea. They are glitchy and fragile and should be avoided. Even when they were new, they really weren't that great.
Do yourself a favor and learn all you can about CSS Media queries and create your own responsive layouts. Once you have the basics down, it's extremely simple and much less prone to the pitfalls of LFGLs.
Here is a good place to start:
There are multiple versions of CS6.
Most CS6 books were written well ahead of the 12.0 release date.
For owners of perpetual licensed version:
12.0.1 -update July 2012
12.0.2 -update September 2012
12.0.3 -update December 2012
For Creative Cloud subscribers only:
As to why the authors neglected to include chapters on Fluid Grid Layouts, nobody here can say. My guess is their pre-release version contained an incomplete FGL so they couldn't properly evaluate it and meet their publishing deadline. It might have been added later. Try searching Amazon for 2nd or 3rd Editions.
As previously stated, FGLayouts were no great shakes to work with. Lots of glitches and a clumsy interface. I don't recommend using them.
