    I purchased this book with high expectations. But gradually whilst skimming through the pages I found that a large portion of the book is showing you how to use css and xhtml, along with drop down menus etc.I had hoped that more information was available about using wordpress rather than teaching you css and xhtml. There are a few tips that are useful, but I would not recommend this book to anyone with xhtml and css skills already looking to work with wordpress.A book more focused towards teaching you wordpress functions for theme design etc might be more advisable.

    I've been tinkering with Wordpress theme designs on and off for some time, my normal course of action was to look up a few hints and tips online then try to translate them into the project I was working on. But doing this you always miss out on a vital bit of information which can prove rather important in the end ;-) This book gives you all the info you need to create your own Wordpress theme from scratch. No flipping back and forth between tabs on the browser as you work, the book is right there telling you how to proceed. It's probably not a beginners book, as in you should really have an idea about design before you start, but if you are a beginner it will at least point you in the right direction ;-)

    I started devloping my websites using wordpress because of its nice clean code and easy to use interface. This book gave me just what I needed to complete my first major web design projct in wordpress. The book follows a single project from start to finish and provides a good understanding on how to develop using wordpress. Coming from a programming background this book fully met my needs and gave me a few interesting tips on the way. It is a bit thin but I think that is good.

    Not a bad book, containing useful information about how to approach designing themes for WP, but a bit overpriced.It's not a thick book, and the sections can be a little thin on the detail. It also needs to make its mind up whether its for designers or programmers.All-in-all worth reading, but probably best to wait to see if anything a little more substantial comes out.
