    Must be a Dummie because this book worked for me.

    I did things a little backwards; I bought the TypePad account and then I realized that I needed the book. That being said, I'm very glad that I purchased this book when I did. It is a concise and useful book, great for the beginning user of TypePad.

    Like other books in the Dummie series, this book's chapters are laid out in a logical order. It even includes short sections on what blogging is, the history of TypePad and a brief section on different TypePad plans, free versus fee, that can be purchased through TypePad. I wouldn't have changed the plan that I'd purchased had I read the section, but it's still good info. In addition to this section, they also compare a few different platforms, hosted vs. non-hosted, etc, giving a "pros" and "cons" section that is unbiased and accurate.

    Then they walk the reader through step-by-step processes of setting up an account and writing your first blog. While I also relied on TypePad's knowledge-base archive, I got most of what I needed from the book.

    Because I'm a newbie to this platform, it's hard to say what might be missing from the book. After all, if you're a Dummie, it's what you don't know that your reading the book for! I'll write again in a few months, once I become an "expert" and let you all know what I think at that point.
