Fantastic, authoritative resource,
This review is from: Drupal 7 Module Development (Paperback)I read the book from cover to cover and found it outstanding, providing never-before-documented information about the guts of Drupal 7. The authors contributed heavily to Drupal 7 development in their respective areas, so this book is impressively authoritative.
My favorite parts:
* Chapters 3 and 4 on the Render System and theming: This is the first published information on the render subsystem that I've seen, and it's excellent. It's critical for both module developers and themers to understand render arrays in D7 and these chapters do the job.
* Chapters 6 and 7 on Entities and Fields: This is the first published information on entities I've run across, and it looks like a great start, both conceptually and technically.
* Chapter 9 on Node Access gives great coverage to a relatively obscure topic.
My only question: Where are volumes 2 and 3, because there's at least that much more information that needs to be grokked for Drupal 7.
