Thorough and Understandable June 2 2009
By James S. Hafner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I've used Joomla and Mambo since the early days. Throughout the years I've picked up quite a bit of a working knowledge of Joomla, though there were always things in and about Joomla that I couldn't explain. Cory's book takes a user all the way from installing Joomla for the first time through advanced Joomla tricks, all without being wordy or overly-in-depth.

Other Joomla books lose my attention too quickly because they either teach you the skills through lengthy exercises or through multiple paragraphs-worth of details. Cory does a good job of laying out practical advice and straight-forward techniques that are considered best practices for anyone who utilizes Joomla professionally or as a hobby.

This book won't replace the Joomla API manuals sitting on my shelf, but I have dog-eared and highlighted more in this book than in any other Joomla book I own. It has really helped me round out my knowledge of the 'little things' about Joomla and has helped explain some of the Joomla quirks I've always wondered about. It is highly recommended for new and advanced Joomla users alike.

Must read for those new to Joomla April 20 2009
By Christopher Raymond - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a Web developer, I've had a chance to work with many proprietary and open source CMS systems. When I decided to advance my knowledge of Joomla 1.5, I picked up a copy of this book. Cory does a great job of explaining each component of Joomla and best practices when working in this CMS framework. I particularly like the "Try it out" and "How it works" sections of each chapter. Overall an easy to follow book to learn the ins and outs of Joomla and highly recommend for anyone looking to learn Joomla.

Great for getting started July 6 2009
By Joatmon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I'm very technical, but was not familiar with Joomla. I wanted something to get me going quickly. Reading this book was much easier for me than trying to read the info scattered around [...] and on the net. It introduces you to the key Joomla terminology and topics in a useful order. It was great at getting me going quickly, and it gave me enough info to then start experimenting with the joomla admin tool. Once I did that I could really start grasping the concepts. It is a well written book to get you going quickly. Don't expect this book to teach you advanced techniques for Joomla. It is exactly what the title says, "Beginning Joomla".

A great way to get started with Joomla! April 14 2009
By Steven N. Schuler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I came at Joomla with a lot of "technical" experience,... just not a lot with Joomla. I found this book was a great "quick step" to getting started.
One of the problems with Joomla is that it isn't the most intuitive CMS. This book gets you up and running quickly with easy to follow steps.
Take in mind that this book isn't super deep. It is just enough to get you up and running quickly. If you are looking to get deeper, I suggest that you may want to check out "Professional Joomla!" by Dan Rahmel.
If you want to get into using Joomla quickly, then check out this book!

Joomla! user review Oct. 23 2010
By Anon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is probably good for a beginner who is already a tech-oriented person. I'm not. I hoped this book would help me learn to refine, update and manage our agency's site that was preliminarily constructed by our national office. If you're not a tech person, but have been handed even minor responsibilities about working with the structure of a Joomla site...this book isn't going to help you do the job. It assumes the reader already has a working knowledge/understanding of this type of stuff...not so in my case. If all you have to do is load articles, media, etc., the book's fine because there really isn't much to figure out when it comes to adding content to a site.
