3.0 out of 5 stars WordPress Bible, September 16, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: WordPress Bible (Paperback)
I have a couple of Blogspots but would really like to upgrade to a WordPress blog. It seems a little technical to me and with so many options for hosts, themes, servers, plug-ins and widgets, I know I need help. But this book is way over my head. The first problem is that there is no glossary which is a real problem with a technical book such as this. If I don't understand the language I'll never learn the subject.
The next problem I discovered is that the print is rather small with a lot of white space. I would have preferred a slightly larger font size. The pictures of the WordPress pages used as examples are so small you can't even see what is going on there.
Aaron Brazell is obviously a genius, especially on the subject of WordPress, but this book is definately not for the beginner.
I am putting this book on the shelf and hopefully someday I'll pick it up again and benefit from it.

I was just browsing and am always interested in Wordpress books. I saved this book on my wish list, but after reading about how small the pictures are, etc., I will have to take it off now.

Before browsing here, my intention was and still is to watch video training on WordPress at Lynda.com. I have never tried it before, but the paid library is immense with every topic on software training imaginable. Just do a search on the site of what ever topic you like!

I've watched other training videos on WordPress before and have purchased some books on it, but I find it easier to watch a video. I don't have any affiliation with Lynda.com, but just wanted to pass on what I found out.
