Joomla! now powers tens of millions of websites of every size and type. But many beginners find it confusing, and most Joomla! books are too complex to help. Joomla! Explained is the solution. Top Joomla! trainer Stephen Burge teaches everything beginners need to know--and nothing they don’t need to know!
Joomla! Explained requires absolutely no experience with Joomla! content management, website construction, programming, scripting, or even HTML. Stephen Burge has taught thousands of beginners--and thousands more who’ve experimented with Joomla! but haven’t mastered it yet.

Top Customer Reviews
The book also goes over and over the same material, 'practicing' what you just read. The book could convey the same info in 1/4 the pages.
All in all, I read though it but never picked it up when working with Joomla. It is just not useful at all as a reference.
Gave it 2 starts because the cover is nice and I didn't find any typos.
easy step by step explanation.

and now i'm able to do almost what i want with Joomla!
I read this book in less than 1 week
