Very easy to read & follow - leads you into Expression Engine along an quickly accelerating, yet easy to follow path.
I made it about half way through the book before actually putting it down and starting my own website build - the first few chapters gave me enough understanding & confidence to progress further on my own.
I can't rate this book highly enough - it is the perfect partner for your first Expression Engine website build.
I'm just coming around to the idea that EE2 is not a toy. If for example somebody actually wanted to build an online newspaper, then with this software and this book, they could. Wordpress for example is a great blogging tool, but compared to the flexibility of EE, it's not in the same league. This book by Ryan Irelan will show the reader how to leverage the incredible power and flexibility of EE2.

Ryan's book covers installation and basic concepts, and provides an introduction to some of Expression Engines new advanced features as well. The book takes readers through an example setup that is sufficiently detailed: The coding techniques he shows, while basic (which is exactly what you want in a Quick Start Guide), are also very good examples of how to properly write code. The book is written so that you don't have to read the whole thing, either, something he explains in the opening "How to Read This Book."
I highly recommend this book for people looking to get started using Expression Engine 2.0. This new EE (major) release is really well done and worth looking at as an alternative when considering a publishing platform. Ryan's book will help you get started quickly, the right way.
I only wish the description had been more explicit in that regard.
- Buggy code samples. Silver lining: I learned a lot about EE's inner workings!
- Hard to read/scan because there's so much prose. Quite frustrating at times- a better structure would help
- Errors in the text, and it looks like it wasn't proof read or built with a structure in mind
All in all it's a good book and does what it sets out to but you'll need more than this to master the basics. If you want more read Michael Boyink's EE2 book.
