Review from an Amazon reader:

5 stars Great book for getting your head around WordPress
This book has been an incredible resource for developing my own website and understanding of WordPress. I used to rely on the premium plan from WordPress.com, but this book has given me the tools to take the jump and start building and managing my own site. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a clear, well-laid out guide to WordPress.
