This book is the work of an experienced and skilled Joomla! template developer.

Particularly useful: The discussion of the flexible use of sections and categories finally made Joomla! website creation fall into place for me. It seems straightforward, but Sections and Categories don't necessarily match the site's menu structure. The Section/Category coverage is brief in the book, but more in-depth and helpful than most other books on Joomla!, which usually just urge you to get it right, without really explaining how. (The Mambo "Visual Blueprint" book also has an excellent treatment of this, which can be directly applicable to Joomla!)

Also particularly useful: "The Least You Need to Know" sections that provide a good overview of key ideas, and Chapter Summaries that are brief but helpful.

The book covers some of the most valuable Joomla! extensions (many of which don't yet work with Joomla! 1.5).

You will need to purchase the "Joomlashack School Shack Pack" in order to make the best use of the book, but it's probably worth it, at a cost of $97. Hiring a developer would cost a lot more than that. (It would be nicer, of course, if the template came with the book.)

I give this four stars instead of five is because of frequent typos throughout the book. The book is obviously self-published; I look forward to the more professionally typeset (and hopefully, proofed) upcoming book on Joomla! 1.5.

This is a very bad book. The author doesn't know how to write a computer book - it reads like a high school term paper. There is so much to say, but I'll use a single example. The book is printed in black/white and text often refers to things that are highlighted in red. Shows how much effort went into it.

Save your money. There are clearer more explicit examples available for free on the web. If you tried to use this book to build a website you would end up hanging yourself. If this guy is a teacher no wonder the schools in this country are in trouble. I wish he had written the book in his description

P.S. First book I have ever returned

Before finding this guide I read three other user manuals and visited I don't know how many Web sites and online forums. When I found this guide I was still unclear exactly how Joomla went together. But then I read this guide, and suddenly it all came clear! Mr. North explains everything is a direct and simple manner. I have been building Web sites for over 10 years, and I have designed many Web sites using content management systems. But this was the first time I was in charge of the actual construction. I was frustrated and confused up until I found Mr. North's book. I was so relieved to finally have the guidance I needed!

If you are new to Joomla, or if you are still confused about how to put it together, I highly recommend this guide. I threw out all the other user manuals and just kept this one. It's definitely been the best guidance I found so far!

Barrie North is one of the reference points on the Joomla landscape. The pace of change in Joomla-land is fast with little time to create documentation before new software iterations occur. This book has been one of the better resources. The Joomla Admin Manual has been a great reference for all the recent versions of Joomla.
It was a godsend for me in starting working with Joomla. It covers the main territory, along with the author's obvious enthusiasm for ensuring Joomla websites are search engine friendly.
I recommend Barrie North's work. I've used the Joomla Admin Manual, his CSS templates and followed his recommendations for SEO and content editors. In general I've found his advice sound. The book presumes a lightly technical way of looking at things and not unexpectedly in view of the pace of change in Joomla-land could do with a bit more careful proofreading in parts. Well worth the money as a quick way in to using Joomla!

This manual has loads of information in it. I found the concepts can be confusing and hard to read. If you read it through a few times it starts to slowly sink in. I think this is because the information feels like it is jammed together. In the chapter " Creating a Custom Template" the author jumps around a bit which breaks up the flow of the idea and is confusing. I found it difficult at times to know which file he was talking about. This could be a great manual with a better layout.

This is not a bad book. It's a good introduction to joomla, complements well the official joomla manual. The opening chapters are a help in understanding the 'thought' behind the joomla and cms concept. But I didn't think it is enough to really work with joomla with ease. For example, it only lists the core components but doesn't explain how to use them. But all in all I find working with joomla horribly frustrating generally, so maybe it's not the book's fault.
This book was great for a new user with little or no Joomla experience.

I read this book through in one sitting and gained a lot of insight to Joomla. It is pretty clear in the way it presents info. Readers are guided through creating a basic Joomla template.

As an advanced user, I would like to have more examples of creating working templates in less of a click-this, click that step by step instruction. The examples were a little hard to follow. It would be better to have an overview of the process followed by instructions. I found myself clicking through the examples not knowing what I was trying to accomplish.
