A Book Review: Head First WordPress

by Judy Baker on March 4, 2011

Head First WordPressI highly recommend the book “Head First WordPress” by Jeff Siarto. The best parts of the book include its humorous yet detailed step-by-step actions and instructions. Part of this series of “brain friendly guides” published by O’Reilly.

There are quizzes, visuals, samples and related website where you can download sample code. From start to finish this book uses a variety of ways to help users master the material. This is a great resource for intermediate to advanced web developers.

As a user of DYI Thesis theme for WordPress, I found this book helps me understand how to customize and make the best use of WordPress for my blog and the blogs I administer or my customers. I have long been a fan of books published by O’Reilly. In part my loyalty and support of O’Reilly comes from the fact they are located nearby in Sebastopol. What really distinguishes  this company is their support for local groups like the North Coast Mac user group. O’Reilly offers a substantial discount on their books and other products to members ncmug.

They participate in a variety of local as well as national events and tradeshows. They host groups like the North Coast Internet Society no charge. Their representatives are friendly, helpful and truly lovers of knowledge and people. The content of their website, their well-designed books, and the expertise contained there in, have me returning to their catalog to find resources for mastering software and concepts.

Visit their website at www.oreilly.com to find the missing manual for almost any software you use and how to books that will help you work smarter.
