This is an excellent primer with clear directions on how to build your own Wordpress Themes.

It is not intended to be an introduction to Wordpress, installation, management, etc. It assumes that the reader already has basic Wordpress skills and a clear understanding of HTML, CSS, some PHP/javascript/JQuery, etc.

كتاب جيد جدا لتعلم تصميم قوالب وورد بريس حيث يبدأ بك من الأساسيات وانتهاءا بكل ما تريد ويعتمد في التصميم على طريقة القوالب المبنية على أخرى أو ما يسمي Child themes

This book had excellent information on creating a theme presented in a enjoyable and readable manner. I'd recommend it to anyone creating a theme. It goes into a reasonable depth without focusing on the detail. The only thing I found missing was walkers, but they are so specialized and code focused I found excluding them to be a reasonable choice.

Very helpful. My only hangup is that I wish it was more universal and not written with a certain framework (Thesis) in mind. But, if you are familiar with the WordPress set up, you can tweak and customize just about any theme or create your own child themes with the help of this book.

Finally a theming book that doesn't assume one is a designer and/or wants to start in Photoshop. This is a theming book for Wordpressers. Had to find the third (?) edition to have something on custom posts -> make sure you get hold of the newest edition, ...more

it's a good start for anyone looking to them. using a framework to begin with is a genius idea (kinda like using design patterns....you can revert if you screw up)

I thought this was an excellent source of information for anyone looking to build a WordPress theme. It was well laid out and had some good code tips in it.
