"Those with a good familiarity with the Drupal CMS system interested in saving time during the planning process will love this book!...What really impressed me was the depth of coverage given within each chapter. "
--Irene Kraus, CEBUG
"This book lived up to my expectations. Using Drupal is easily the best book I have read so far for helping a person who knows nothing about the content management system (but who has a base familiarity with web hosting) figure out how the software works, how to add and configure features, and how to make powerful and useful web sites."
--Matthew Helmke, MatthewHelmke.net
"...a nice gift for the geeks in your family."
--John R. Clark, TCM Reviews
"...a detailed and information-packed guide to the most promising contributed modules, and how they can be best employed for creating common types of Web sites."
