4.0 out of 5 stars Nice book.
It is a great book. A lot of details, but still missing af few real advanced examples.
Besides that, it's a great look-up book.

3.0 out of 5 stars not as definitive as the earlier editions
The earlier two editions of this book were the definitive books for the versions of Drupal they covered.

3.0 out of 5 stars not as definitive as the earlier editions, 23 Sep 2011
This review is from: Pro Drupal 7 Development (Expert's Voice in Open Source) (Paperback)
The earlier two editions of this book were the definitive books for the versions of Drupal they covered.

The current book is larger as Drupal has grown in complexity, and tries to cover the large area of both site building for those who want to avoid writing code, while also writing a lot about how to code for Drupal.

It does a fairly good job of this - but inevitably can't get everything in and sometimes the code sections are just too short for my taste.

Drupal 7 had a bumpy road to release with API changes made long after they were expected to be closed, and as this book was written before Drupal 7 was released there are inevitably some areas where the book doesn't match the actual product. I've found errors in the book - and the errata website for it is pretty large.

The book is still highly useful as a reference and explains well what happens in Drupal and how to do things - just don't rely too much on the code examples.

This review is from: Pro Drupal 7 Development (Expert's Voice in Open Source) (Paperback)
It's a fairly good book but the amount of errors in code is very annoying - especially as for third edition. Source codes and errata aren't complete what makes going through the examples even more difficult. Recommended for skilled drupal developers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing book., 9 Aug 2011
This review is from: Pro Drupal 7 Development (Expert's Voice in Open Source) (Paperback)
This book is very helpful if you want to learn Drupal 7. The truth it that it has an identical structure as the second edition of the book, but the code and the examples are updated for Drupal 7.
