"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. "

--Matthew Helmke,

"...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."
--Michael J. Ross, Web Developer,
