Whether you’re a budding blogger or web development professional, WordPress is a brilliant tool for creating websites—if you know how to tap its impressive features.

Like many others from “The Missing Manual” series do, this book covers virtually every aspect of the topic, from the very jumpstarting to advanced customization tasks. What really caught my attention the first time I opened it, was the extremely granular structure of the Table of Contents.

I don’t say this often, but in the case, I will. The name says it all. I’ve been reading this book, which by the way, looks really good on both the Kindle and the Kindle Fire HD (yeah I finally got one…yay). This book covers things I didn’t even think of and explains it in straight forward, no nonsense, and conversational style. When I say conversational style, I mean that it flows from one sentence to the next, one subject to the next without being stuffy and it is written so that anyone can understand it. Word Press is a little daunting on some things. Am I gonna mess it up so it never works? What the heck are plugins? How do I moderate comments? What if I’m getting a lot of spam in my comments? How do I even set it up? Now I personally know about some of these things, but there are many more that I didn’t. I certainly didn’t know how to set up an E-commerce website. What about security? That’s covered as well. Mr. MacDonald makes it seem so easy. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn more about Word Press. Full Review  >
