The whole shebang on WordPress!

I think there is almost everything you need to know about WordPress in these books (at least if you´re getting started with WP).
Good read and great design!

Tom M.:

For advanced WP users

This is for people who want to understand WordPress, not just make it work somehow.
I especially liked the chapters on designing your own theme and on integrating social networks.

Bernd Jörger:

Really helpful, especially for people who are new to the subject

If only I had this book in 2011! I think it would have saved a lot of time I spent researching on the different subjects this release covers. But still, some hints I got from it will still make my workflow faster and more effective.
