As long as you have the basic skills (PHP/MySQL/Magento user) then this cookbook is what other Magento titles have failed to be. Fully comprehensive! Starting with a succinct guide to set up a development environment which goes beyond the bare minimum you would get in your average online tutorial. And this is a pattern repeated throughout almost all the recipes, out of the 30 or so I have read so far, without exception. The authors give more than the bare minimum. Which is of course what you would expect in a book of this price but so often you don't get it.
