      Comments about oreilly Using Joomla!, 2nd Edition:

      I bought this book to help me learn Joomla. I was hoping for more than just a cookbook. The book is just a series of steps with NO explanation as to 'why' you're doing it, that is, what's going on behind the scenes. When you're done, you have a Joomla website but you have little understanding of Joomla itself nor do you have many tools to build something other than the project from the book. I was disappointed.
