This book is the straight-from-the-source solution for getting up to speed, with clear instruction and key insights from DNN founder Shaun Walker and well-known contributors from the DNN team.

I actually liked the history of DNN given in the first chapter (a total of around 100 pages.) No, it probably won't help you manage a site, write a module or change a skin but it sets the context well.
At the time I am writing this review DNN 9.02 is shipping however the differences between this and DNN 7 seem minor enough to not matter.
The general explanations of the various host and administrator options were good and the detailed example of how to write a fully featured module using DAL 2 to store the modules data, how to edit, view, delete data etc. was the highlight of the book for me.
Bottom line if:
- You are getting started with DNN and the information you can find online isn't making things clear
- You have an interest in the history of DNN
then buy this book.
Because if he's mentioned, it appears the book never actually teaches you anything, except the very, very basic info about it. If someone actually wrote a book that focused on BUILDING MODULES for this CMS, it would have about 10 times more copies out there. Instead, because of poorly written books like this, and the fact that if you go to their website and forum and ask a question, it's MODERATED. Which means that you wait 2-3 days before someone actually posts and responds to your question, and if you don't ask ONE question at a time, they will answer the most GENERAL question you have, in the MOST GENERAL way, leaving you with the realization that you just wasted 2 days, waiting for an intelligent response, and were left wanting.
So it's impossible to get good info about DotNetNuke, and that is why, though it is truly an excellent framwork, it is incredibly unpopular on microsoft boxes. If they didn't have such a fascist view of the programming world, they'd have made 10 x as much money as they have. It's truly sad to see a good product wasted, because of a lazy effort to disseminate information about it.
