This is a very sophisticated and comprehensive book. But it is definitely not for dummies or beginners which I am. So I was disappointed. I will use it as a reference but I was hoping for stepwise directions or a simple tutorial to get me started.

I wanted an all-around WordPress book; alas, this particular book is limited to creating sites for blogs. I want to use WordPress as a general Content Management System, and I have no interest in blogs. I've seen some sites that are flexible (with respect to viewing client) and are non-blog sites. I goofed in not researching this issue with this book in mind. Lesson learned.
