As the book says - you can read from cover to cover, or jump to chapters you need as you need them. It works! However, after only three weeks of looking at Typepad for Dummies I STILL need it - like a bible!
My usage criteria: my blog is a business blog; I am not HTML or code savvy; but I am learning very quickly how to build a community thanks to Typepad for dummies!!
