Reviews from Amazon readers about the first edition:
"I bought this book in the hope of building my own blog and it really helped me learn the basics, as well as some cool features like building my own online store. I never knew you could actually do so much with Wordpress. The book starts off slow and introduces the user to Wordpress at a beginners pace, which was great for me.
Later in the book it gets into more advanced features, so this could be handy for those wanting to learn even more things you can do with the tool. I am a big fan of the In Easy Steps series, and this book did not disappoint."
"WordPress is something I have been looking to learn for a while, and this book has really been handy to help me get my website off the ground. I knew quite a lot of things at the start from previous experience, however it really went from the basics all the way to advanced detail. It went through all the best plugins and how to set them up correctly and there is also a bit where you can create your own theme, which I may try at a later date."
"Easy to read and understand, would recommend for anyone looking to set up their own Wordpress website, hosted or not."
