This beginners guide is exactly that but more as well. All the topics necessary to get up and running from nothing is here. The attention to detail is excellent. For example there are many drop down lists and other options throughout Magento who's meaning has alluded me for years. I had many of those 'Oh, so that's what it is!' moments while reading. I have already said that the book is going to be useful for a complete beginner but as implied it can be useful for an administrator/non specialist developer as well. The amount of information about delivery, payment and product configuration options is invaluable in deciding when Magento is right for your new client or not. Everything in this book is superbly presented and useful. So why 4 starts. I would have liked to read an introduction to Magento apps and also configuring a mobile site and Magento apps. But perhaps I'm just greedy. Yes, perhaps I am greedy. 5 stars well earned!
