A Quickstart to nowhere,
This review is from: WordPress 2 (Paperback)
Sorry folks, but skip this one (and many of VQGs, fyi).
1. leaves out explanations of "why" Wordpress works the way it does. (example: why doesn't Safari display the editor toolbar?)
2. When things get complicated, instead of explaining how Wordress works, the authors suggest that you "leave it alone." (Wow, thanks for the help!)
3. Too many simple things are detailed, for example directions on how to log onto a blog. (We can trim the fat in places like this, and add more details to say, tweaking a theme).
My suggestion: read the online documentation and participate in online discussions until a better read comes out. This one wasted $24 that I could of spent on beer.

Colin Scroggins says:
Text area editors do not work in Safari. This is a shortcoming of the browser and is unrelated to Wordpress. That is why it is not in the book.
