  1. When you recommended the WordPress book for beginner, is it for people who don’t know about coding or for people who have an understanding of basic coding

  2. Hello Ikechi,

    The book for beginners that I have mentioned is ” Professional WordPress: Design and Development” which is a good enough book to get started with WordPress usage but if you want to get into development like creating themes and plugins then you will need to learn PHP first. For which I would recommend “SAMS Teach Yourself PHP4 in 24 Hours”

    Also some knowledge of HTML/CSS is must which you can learn from w3schools.com.
