  • Heh, it seems Amazon have bumped up the price to USD35.00 while at the same time showing the book creeping up the 'best seller' rank. I wonder if there's an algorithm raising price based on orders? :)

  • Ralph, you should find that it caters for you. Some of the chapters deal with installation and basic templating, so it should be a case of you finding most of the chapters relevant, with a few perhaps chapters dealing with topics possibly more technical than you need to go into. The book doesn't explain PHP, HTML, and CSS, as there's a million other books on those topics. I suggest getting our book and then getting complimentary books if you find you need to :)

  • Have just started to learn SilverStripe, and am glad to see that a book is out. From the write-ups it seems that the book mainly caters for content authors and experienced developers. I'm wondering if the book covers much "middle ground", detailing how designers mainly versed in HTML and CSS can go about setting up a site?
