5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful and accessible 23 April 2014
By Bakari Chavanu - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm so glad I downloaded this book (on my iPad), because it helped me make the decision to use the WordPress.com upgrade, instead of going for a self-hosted site.

The author of this book is very knowledgeable about WordPress (he also teaches courses on the subject), and his instructions and screenshots of very straightforward and easy to understand. His writing style is conversational, and he explains the pros and cons of a free and self-hosted WordPress site.

I decided to go for the premium upgrade, which he explains in chapter 14, because it seems to include all the necessary widgets and blogging features that I need for right now. By keeping my blog on WordPress.com I don't have to worry about back end issues and third-party upgrades.

The author also explains how to make use of WordPress themes and some CSS coding for both WordPress.com and WordPress.org users. If you have never used WordPress, there are also plenty of videos on the Internet that you should also watch while you use this book as a reference.

This is also the second Absolute Beginner's Guide book I have purchased from Que press, and I must say that the layout and design of their books are very well done. I'm almost tempted to buy paper edition of this book, but the Kindle version will have to suffice.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have! 20 Jun 2014
By Jeffrey K. Wright - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Both my wife and I plan to begin a website (with blog component) and neither of us have much experience developing websites. Years ago I did spend some time with Microsoft's FrontPage creating a simple website, but that was back in the dark ages of web site design. Much has changed since then. Without getting into the specifics of this book, I simply want to say that the author has done a masterful job of presenting each and every step of using WordPress for the neophyte. His style is as if he were sitting next to me and guiding me slowly through each step. So often it seems software instructors race through their teaching presentations making unrealistic assumptions about how much we know about the subject. This author does not make that mistake. Instead, each step of the way is laid out progressively from selecting your hosting company, to working with advanced features of Plug-Ins and Themes, to installing e-commerce features. Thank you Mr. Hussey for making my task easier and doable!
