    Comments about oreilly The WordPress Anthology:

    Although there is some good stuff here, there is some stuff so badly explained that it leaves you with wrong impression and also some really important stuff are missing. I am left wondering if the authors truly understand the WordPress PHP code. It seems not. I felt ripped off after purchasing this book. I agree with the previous reviewer that O'Reilly should not be associated with books of this low quality.

        Comments about oreilly The WordPress Anthology:

        I'm a long time reader of orielly books especially the pocket guides, this book is not published by orielly and also does does not deserve to be on their website.

        Full of verbocity like references to pop culture and home decorating, the content is clouded over to frustrating level. Give us the concepts and the gotchas please, don't tell me how to click on dead tree screen shots. If I wanted to click I'd play with the live word press on a computer, but I want a book to read in bed for the knowledge that guides me. The book left me feeling patronized to the point of skipping and skimming breeding further disquiet that'd maybe missed something important in all the clutter.

        Thanks to the chummy tone, I felt this book wanted more to be my friend like an annoying new kid in class, than teach me anything.

        Would love to hear of an alternative book which is also, like this book, pitched at the web developer rather than casual user.
