I downloaded Drupal to power some of my property websites. (www.redsun.com.pk and www.pristinepakistan.com) After spending DAYS trying to get what I wanted out of it, I finally had to admit defeat. I went and used other software such as Joomla and SMF instead and I realised that the learning curve was not just for Drupal but for these types of Content Management/Blogging/Forum type software. Drupal would have been my first choice had I bought this book and spent some time on actually learning about it properly.

I found this book very informative. Includes many starting points to get an understanding of how the inner workings of Drupal.org works.
What I found useful in the book, is that is starts you off
on the road to understanding certain concepts. It doesn't go into extremely great depth on some concepts. Such a book would be 5x the size. It provides basic starting points for the drupal developer.
If you want to set up a drupal website and not develop for the project, don't buy this book, it's not for you. It is for the serious developer who wants to get a great foundation to the concepts and methodologies that the Drupal project uses.

I don't feel like this book is complete. It's missing a whole section on the entity API and the forms API could use more. Read full review

Decent book on Drupal development. It helped me gain understanding on how Drupal works. It does suffer two flaws: There are quite a few typos, and this can be frustrating especially when they are in ... Read full review

So this is a book for people who want to do a bit of Drupal coding, not for the noobie. VanDyk clearly knows his way around the Drupal framework, and I can imagine consulting this book carefully as ... Read full review
