WordPress Bible 1 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

This book is horrible. Horribly lacking in every aspect. It basically is the guy who knows something, saying that he knows something but never tells you anything! And it was $50.00 in the store. This book is a rip-off with no real information and no instruction in it at all. Very poorly done!
