If you are looking for a book to give to your end users on "how to use DNN" and are not looking for programming knowledge, this is the book for you. I would recommend every person that has to edit a page in DNN to read this book in order to understand it's capabilities and the power that DNN has to offer.

The first week of January, I asked my web host to create a web site for my race car team that I could design and update myself. They use DotNetNuke. I knew nothing about running a web site. I had no idea what a "skin" was or how to use a "container." "DotNetNuke for Dummies" turned me into a web designer. [...]

The problem with "Dummies" and similar books written by people who are experts in their areas is that they've forgotten what it's like not to be a beginner. Consequently, they're often filled with jargon that goes unexplained, processes that leave out steps, and things that just make you go "huh?"

This book is no exception to that. While there is a lot of useful information, there are some puzzling gaps that will leave you scratching your head. It assumes more knowledge than the authors let on.

This book, like many others in this series, would serve the reader much better if they were written by real writers in association with the real experts. A writer with a real command of the presentation of information would know when to dig deeper and ask more questions when a process isn't clear to the uninitiated reader.

An absolute waste of time. This book is so outdated it's not even worth the paper it's published on. You can learn so much more about DNN by simply browsing the web for free online tutorials. DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK!

Our small company decided to use DNN to improve their static HTML based site. This book really helped all of us - sales people, account managers, as well as the data services people - how to get it started, get a feel of how to work with modules, install, customize, create/add roles, skin explanation, etc.

So far the results have been excellent - we've created a workable site where our clients can easily get reports and the data we need - and it is easy to work with.

This book was a great help in getting the basics down and point to other resources for more questions or advanced topics.

Great book for providing the basics and getting things going with DotNetNuke. Pretty slick little product so far. Would recommend for understanding the product and providing initial implementation of your first website using it.

Very detailed book - certainly not for dummies. Our web designer provided DNN as our CMS but I find it is much more complex than I imagined. The product and the book are more suited to IT professionals.
