I so needed a good Views tutorial and cookbook. But this has turned out to be a huge waste of time and money (because of the time).

The author apparently used an old version of Views, and while he says it's for Views 3, his descriptions of the controls to use bear little correlation to the current version. In his first example, he gives a step by step "How to" of editing a clone of an existing page. The problem is that the items he describes do not exist. "2. Click on the + link in the Filters box. 3. A dialog box titled Master: Add Filters will open. 4. In the Groups select box, choose Node. ..." None of those controls, nor the ones that he describes in the steps that follow, exist in Views 3 on Drupal 7.

What makes this especially unhelpful is that there are few screen shots so that someone might be able to figure out where the capabilities he has referred to have gone. He also saves the (very brief) explanation of what the steps he was taking were supposed to do to the end. It's as if someone gave you directions like "go to the second traffic light and turn right, then turn left at the 4rd light, then right at the 2nd stop sign. How about that view?" No map of where you're going, and no explanation of why you're performing the actions in the "recipes." Each of them just says "we'll start with (this view), and will make some changes. Carry out the following steps in order to accomplish this recipe."

Technology and UIs do change, although we've had our installation of Views 3 for a good amount of time so the changes haven't been that recent. But I gave the author the benefit of the doubt and headed up to Packt Publishing to get the update and/or errata. Nothing there.

There weren't many reviews on this book when I purchased it last year, and unfortunately the one that I missed was by "UltiMike" on the Drupal Easy website. Too bad, I would have saved a nice chunk of change. I've generally had good luck buying Packt Publishing books on web development, but not with this book. As the aforementioned review by UltiMike had also found, the book seems not to have been properly edited for errors. It is lacking in images. It mixes up terminology between Drupal Views versions. And it violates several Drupal best practices.

Whereas I've found J Ayen Green's previous book "Drupal 6 Attachment Views" to be quite useful, this one is a bit of a mess. There is an errata page to correct some of the errors in the book, found at: [...]

Concise, well structured. Must review the things changed in current Views 3. Should add EVA Module and integration with Display Suite. Could have better screnshots too.

If you need to build views and don't want to loose your head reading hundreds of pages and sites, this is your book.

Given the quality of the other Packt book I've read (Drupal Cookbook) I was pretty surprised at the poor quality of this book. Numerous editing issues made me give up after the first few "recipes", wound up having to do so many Google searches to find out how to make the instructions work that it pretty much defeated the purpose of having a book.

I'm just learning Drupal, and at first I thought that the framework had been updated after the book was written and that's why I was having so many problems recreating the recipes. But after seeing the other reviews here, I realize that there are many errors in the book instead. The main recipes book is great, but not this one.
