I was one of the reviewer during the development phase and found this book was quite interesting to read.If you are new to Drupal and want some basic concept with some advance featues, this is a good book to have for your library.

Was clear and concise. My only complaint is that it doesn't make it clear enough that (1) Drupal 8 is a ways away from having the robust set of modules to extend its function; and (2) it is slower than D7 and requires more work (tweaking settings, etc) to make it perform well. But the book is solid and accurate and clear.

This book was great! It helped me understand the basics of Drupal 8. I would recommend this book to anyone who has not used Drupal before, it is a beginner book.

I will a bit disappointed. It doesn't go into much detail and is very basic in what it does discuss.
