Recommends it for: WordPress administrators, designers, developers
This is the broadest, most comprehensive WordPress book I’ve read so far.

What a dumb thing to do, moving to bumf-ck Idaho. What cuts it in Idaho is a degree, and an engineering deg...more

Gives you a good overview on what you meed to know about Wordpress saving you precious time since its focused. Without the need to hunt all over the internet. Worth reading to have a grasp of wordpress, but not a reference for professional text.

It is an interesting book, but the actual technical instructions are not helpful to a first time site builder. And this is my second website!
