If you need a background in administering a Joomla site, it's OK, but pretty dry even as far as technology books go. Even the best IT related book could only be about 3.5 stars in my mind, but this was a little bit below average.

Main principle of this read is the "CASh" workflow.




The book also reviews the difference between Components, Modules and Plugins - though even after reading through and several years of experience as a developer, the description seems a bit arbitrary.
Burge sets out to write a truly basic, truly introductory text for those with minimal familiarity with Content Management System technology ... and he succeeds! The book dovetails with on-line files available to the purchaser which allow the reader to work along with the book. This is an excellent educational strategy. The reader cannot claim expertise with Joomla! CMS by the time the book is completed but has sufficient knowledge to design, erect and publish a basic website.
This is an excellent tutorial.
