I am a visual learner. If you don't know what that means, it means that you learn by seeing something vs. having it explained to you. So if I'm sitting in a meeting at work and they are talking about a concept, I don't really start to understand it until I it up on a screen, or if I write it down as they are talking about it. Make sense? So if you're like me, you might want to try this book.I am learning Wordpress right now and have several books..... I bought the Dummies Wordpress book and frankly have been pretty frustrated by it. It's text-intensive and whenever I look up something in the index, it's not there. On top of that, even though it says it's for websites and not blogs, there are still more references to blogs since the author is a big blogger and this seems to be where her preferences lie. I'm going into that book because I'm assuming if you're looking for Wordpress beginners books that's one you might be considering.So as far as this book goes....WOW. This is what it must have been like in the 1960s when TV's went from black / white to color. This book is all-color, glossy, with lots of color pictures to help you understand the Wordpress interfaces. Each page is extremely easy to understand... and while it's presented in a visually compelling manner, it's not for "dummies" but instead walks you through setting up hosting and building your Wordpress site. There are lots of "tips" boxes with potential questions for each topic.A good example is the "Understand Plugins" section on page 206.... it is organized in easy to read text boxes (almost like a website, fancy that!) and walks you through the paragraph-length topics: What is a plugin? Free vs. Paid. Make your own... etc.
