If you're more advanced you can skim the beginning BUT many people will read and reread the beginning. I'm so glad that it's there. This book assumes nothing. It lets you know what you need to know. It walks you through the important concepts you need to understand THEN walks you through the steps by step instructions to accomplish the tasks you need to perform as a Drupal site builder and administrator. The fact that the book is good for Druapl6 and Drupal7 audiences is a pure bonus! I love Drupal because its awesome.

I have a mixed review for this book.

I am an experienced programmer, but rusty in the PHP department from a few years of not using it but wanted to learn more about Drupal. I had already installed Drupal on my server and was hoping that the book would help me better understand why I was doing some of the basic things, and to introduce me to new concepts of what Drupal could do.

I was disappointed that there were not enough screenshots to show what it was that I was actually trying to accomplish. It only said in words what we were trying to do using terminology that was new to me so it was difficult to understand the goals of the tutorials until I set it up then executed it. So, to me it was kind of like a combination of connect-the-dots and a lego instruction manual. It showed you how to put the pieces together, but you didn't really know what you were building until it was done.

I believe this book was intended for Drupal 7. I am using Drupal 6.19 because I wanted to take advantage of the modules that are available and it was difficult at times to find the options that the author was talking about. For myself this wasn't too big of an issue because it forced me to think more instead of following the bouncing ball, but it also lead to a lack of confidence in the options that I was taking to accomplish the results that I wasn't sure that I was trying to accomplish because there were no screen shots to show the intended results!?!?

All-in-all I did build the lego pieces to see the end results, and it did start me down the paths that took me to where I was wanting to go, so I can't complain too much about it. There are some nice complete tutorials on some basic processes, such as creating an author/editor work flow to approve new content, which was a big plus for me. And it did introduce you to some of the most popular modules to get to where you intend to go, which was also another big plus being new to the Drupal environment.

So, in some places I would give it a 2 rating and in others I would give it a 5. I can't say I wouldn't recommend it, but I would say that it could be done better.

From the Introduction to Beginning Drupal: "This book focuses on Drupal 7, but the changes since Drupal 6 are highlighted where appropriate." Well I'm deep in Chapter 4 and can only remember one "highlighted change".

I started the book with a working version 6 of Drupal, but soon got completely lost as it's really a version 7 book. At this time Drupal 7 is only available in it's 4th Alpha version. Version 7 is a lot different.

I did install a local version of Drupal 7 Alpha 4 and now I'm following along fine with the book. Version 7 will be released sometime this year and it's worth learning and being ready in my opinion, but the author should have been way more clear in what this book is about.

Beginning Drupal is a decent book for getting a conceptual overview of Drupal Features, but as other reviewers have pointed out, it was apparently written for a beta release. It is quite out of sync with the current release (7.14 as I write this), so many menus and features have significantly changed since it was written.

The discrepancies are painfully obvious when you try and complete many of the hands-on exercises. In some cases I can hunt through the Drupal UI until I find the equivalent command to complete a task. In others, however, I am simply stuck. In Chapter 7, for example, I couldn't begin to equate the instructions for creating custom user profiles to the Drupal UI (for example, "Enable Module X," when Module X doesn't exist). What's presented in the book has no equivalent to what I see in the Drupal 7.14 menus.

I could forgive the author and publisher to some degree if they would take responsibility for publishing at least some corrections. I realize that you can't use an errata page to rewrite extensive sections, but the Wrox errata page for this book is shamefully inadequate. When I checked the page today, there were only three short items.

This is the main Drupal instruction book that I have used, so unfortunately I can't make another recommendation. All I can recommend is that you skip this one if you need hands-on training.

When I first started reading this book, I was thinking I'd rate this a 4 or 5 because Redding writes very clearly. I was excited to learn Drupal 7 after building home-grown CMS's for years.

Unfortunately, I got more and more frustrated because after I installed Drupal 7, I discovered that most of the exercise instructions do not match up with the screens in the Drupal 7 installation.

From the Introduction the book says, "This book focuses on Drupal 7, but the changes since Drupal 6 are highlighted where appropriate." I didn't work on Drupal 6, so I don't know if the book exercises were from Drupal 6 or an early, outdated beta release of Drupal 7, but half the battle of getting through the exercises is trying to translate Redding's outdated instructions to the actual v7 release.

It's too bad--he writes well, but it's almost like the book was rushed out the door to include some minor references to Drupal 7 without updating the exercises appropriately. In some cases, I couldn't even find where in Drupal 7 to go to in order to complete the exercises.

I started out liking this book since it is well written, and friendly for a beginner.

Unfortunately, as other reviewers have noted, the book is based on an early alpha version of Drupal 7. Many of the screenshots do not correspond to the release version, and therefore it is difficult to follow some of the examples. The errata page at the Wrox website doesn't list any of these problems as of today, so you're on your own.

Here's just one example. On the bottom of page 105, "Try it out: Allow Anonymous users to submit ..." The directions say to Navigate to Administer > Configuration > Permissions ... when in fact, in Drupal 7, you get there by Administer > People and then click the tab that says "Permissions."

For the most part, it's possible to figure out these discrepancies. But it adds unhelpful confusion when the goal is to try to learn a powerful but complex tool.
