Want to get started with WordPress but find the other guides to geeky? If you don't know your PHP from your MySQL then this no-nonsense guide will hold your hand through WordPress installation, content creation, and then guide you to taking your WordPress site to the next level.

This book touches on all elements of WordPress and has one of the best step-by-step guides to editing and updating content I have seen - the book is well worth the purchase price for this section on it's own.

In addition this book guides the reader though a list of recommended resources to extend and add to your WordPress website.

Whether you are just setting out with WordPress or have been using it for a few years this is an invaluable How-To guide set out in plain language.

All I can say is - buy this book now, you won't regret the purchase!

I used the book creating a over 150 page active website, I also gave a copy to a German lady in Athens Greece who was also working on a similar project of hers. We both found it helpful as the "backbone guidance" for creating your website project.

The books strength is it gives you enough help (and confidence) to move out. When difficulties were encountered - being able to talk with another human who's actually doing the same task, - or worse case find a users group on-line to gain insight on a specific issue is very helpful to carry you beyond issues you encounter...that a book simply can't cover. Overall Review = highly recommend for folks interested in building a WordPress Website, clearly and crisply written does not get you bogged down in "techno-speak" that might well scare off a beginning / aspiring website owner.

I must say I was a little skeptical with this but am now quite sold.
It does take an absolute beginners view so if you know what you are doing I'd probably say skip this, but if you aren't buy it!
I was really impressed by how well this book conveyed everything in a simple easy to understand manner.

Also bear in mind this book is relevant whether you just want to blog or if you'd like to set up a website on wordpress.
Very comprehensive and well written ! 5* guide!

Want to start a WordPress blog or web site? Then get this book. It is very well written and easy to follow. It tells you everything you need to know in plain English. Lots of great links too. You do not need to be a PHP or HTML expert to be able to use this book. I am a very experienced WordPress user and I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a comprehensive guide. Well worth the money.

Not overly complicated with jargon, makes this book easy to read. Having said that I would have liked a few more chapters on the more advanced aspects of using Wordpress.

A good general guide to WordPress, it has enough to get you going with a few useful tips. It is not really a guide for existing users as it only covers the basics.

A very basic book on WordPress, but very well written. Ideal for someone who knows nothing about WordPress and wants to get started. A very useful collection of links and also good information about plugins. The only major omission I can see is on security where it fails to tell you the most basic security measure you should take with WordPress namely renaming the wp-admin directory. I showed a friend how I could hack his WordPress site in under 15 seconds as he had not done this. Apart from that I would recommend this a a WordPress primer. I shall be keeping the book on hand for the links.

This book was a bit basic for me, as I have some limited experience with CSS and HTML 5 etc. however it was a good overview. For anyone who's never used Wordpress and is worried about where to begin, this book is perfect. For people like me who like to know what's going on under the bonnet, it'll be a bit basic.

I have just finished setting my blog/website. I found this book utterly fantastic and it is truly a step by step. Written in a language that those who are not computer literate will appreciate. I found it easy to follow and use. I would certainly us another book by this author.

I am not a geek. If I have a need I can use applications. For someone like me a guide like the one Caimin Jones has written to WordPress is invaluable. Jones takes you though why WordPress, installing, blogs and websites. There is a lot on architecture and design and useful sections on resources and search engine optimisation. You want a website? Get this book.
