2.0 out of 5 stars The information is there but its not easy or pleasurable to find it - so poorly designed as to be almost unuseable, 7 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wordpress for Beginners: A Visual Step-by-Step Guide to Creating your Own Wordpress Site in Record Time, Starting from Zero! (Paperback)
A 'visual guide' put together by someone with no visual sense. This book is very poorly designed and has no index or contents list. Yes, its a good idea to show screen view-type information but not if the book design is as basic as this one. Essentially it's impossible to navigate unless you really want to follow the author blindly. It's one of the ugliest books I've ever come across so why would I use to help me create a website that I want to look slick and beautiful? Sorry but this is not a book for anyone with any sort of visual sense.

OK so maybe the tile is wrong and there are no pretty pictures guiding you throughout. Images are used with discretion and if needed on a step by step basis. For the rest of the content, I found it to be succinct and logical. The reader probably needs to skim through the book to get a feel, then start again in front of the computer using the book as a tutorial as you are taken through the steps to create a Wordpress website. Maybe the review person should have another crack at this.
