I agree with the other commentors that this book would be better titled “How to set up a WordPress Blog.” If that was the case I would not have checked it out. It is two years old and the user interface has changed so much that much of the book is confusing. While it could be helpful for a developer or web designer, it feels frustratingly out of date. I would avoid this book unless you want a very basic walk-through through a WordPress installation. This book fails only now because of the hard work and rapid development of the WordPress platform. At the time the book was new I bet this was a very helpful and time-saving work. If this was updated I would recommend it.
