This is far and away the best overview on Joomla, how to deploy a website in Joomla. This is not a book on how to develop in Joomla. The intended audience is someone who will be building Joomla websites, administrating them and doing mild customization in the HTML/CSS arena. Not a book about PHP programming or Joomla's MVC architecture (shame to even use that term, as Joomla MVC is horrific!).

Joomla is a great product for the right audience and this book is perfect for them!

I have already been working with Joomla for a while. This book tends to explain every virtual button on the screen which are pretty intuitive by the name or label given.

I was really looking for some more in depth information about how to get Joomla to perform some functions to solve my needs.

This text does not (nor was it design to) explain the modules & extensions. I am using the Chronoforms, JEvents, PHP & MySQL to make a complete solution. I need something which could tie it all together.

As far as discovering the issues with Joomla, this book does a great job.

Amazon search for 'Joomla API' shows this book first.
This is a shame. This 'Bible' does not have a single line of PHP code inside.
It is big because it has big illustrations of webpages - impossible to see what on it anyway.

These books go out of date quickly and are best used along with Google searches for current info.
Helpful for new users or the Joomla curious but clever Admins can manage without.

Reading this book is a little like trying to learn how to drive by reading the car manual. It describes everything, often in monotonous and unnecessary detail, but never really gives a clear idea of how to actually build a Web site with Joomla! If you are looking for a book that will help you through the concepts of putting a Web site together with Joomla!, giving just enough details to keep you moving forward, followed by chapters with more technical details, this isn't the one. It's not useless and someday after I actually learn how to Joomla! I may refer back to this book - or maybe not.

This book is very good, the only one thing it was missing more info about building template for Joomla! 1.5 ... and maybe some info about changes in Joomla! 1.6. I will recommend this title to my students and other developers. I still waiting for a paper copy to read rest chapters ;).
