5.0 out of 5 stars Great advanced book 25 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic, hands on book about theme development in WordPress. I brought primarily to read the Custom Post Types section, which is one of best parts of the book. However the opening chapters where Joe walks you through converting from Photoshop to HTML, CSS are also great as it gives you a window in to industry standard techniques. For anyone looking to build there on Theme Framework to use as a base for future projects I highly recommend this book. I should add as well that Joe has a clear and concise writing style.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I needed, nothing more, nothing less. 11 Nov 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book because I wanted a quick insight into wordpress themes. No long laboured introductions of 100 pages before you do anything, just straight in with a worked example.

1.0 out of 5 stars not great 2 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found myself reading up a lot more on the internet now. It missed a lot of content including how to do comments, which is surely highly relevant if your coding a blog?

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastically written guide 3 Jun 2013
Don't let the small page size fool you, this is and excellent introduction to WordPress. If gets straight down to the point and got me flying straight away. My advice is read this book first and it will give you do much understanding because it is written and organised so well. Then go on to read other WordPress books and try it out too. One of the best technical teaching books I have ever read. It teaches l the major concepts whilst being easy to read and understand.
