DotNetNuke is a very powerful CMS tool. This flexibility comes at a price and in this case it is a very steep learning curve for anyone who wants to develop with it. Fortunately this book eases you gently through the process using plenty of examples and it is also a valuable reference going forward. Our company is now developing complex DotNetNuke modules on the basis of having read this book. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because some of the items could benefit from further explanation. That said, I suspect this is still probably the best book out there on this topic.
For anyone totally new to DotNetNuke, I would recommend reading the Wrox Professional DotNetNuke 5 (Open Source Web Application Framework For ASP.NET) book first; which is what I did. This covers the architecture and use of DotNetNuke in much more detail than the above book which is aimed totally at module development. (I'm not on commission for Wrox in case you're wondering, it's just they seem to be the main company publishing books for DotNetNuke)!
