Newbie WordPress books: Got recommendations?

A former member
Post #: 4
I have 2 small sites I want to do the redesign for in WordPress. Basically just want to use it as a CMS since there will be multiple content contributors. Static info + dynamic hero spaces + events calendar + blog functionality. I'm familiar with CSS and HTML but am starting from scratch when it comes to WordPress. Got any recommendations on books? I was thinking of WordPress for Dummies...so if that's a good choice (or is not), please let me know!

Someone has recommended some Web sites (wpbeginner.com for help and elegantthemes.com & woothemes.com for themes). But it's always easier for me to learn how to do something when I can have a printed reference in front of me! (Don't have dual monitors @ home and hate flipping back and forth through screens.)

Thanks!

Astrid, as a newbie myself I like the Dummies book and her style of writing. With WordPress 3.0 out you may want to wait until the new versions are out. I don't think anyone replied to you earlier as you can't reply to a post unless you are signed in, as no reply buttons appear until then. It's a mystery to me ....

Lisa Sabin Wilson is going to be at WordCamp Savannah. She is a great writer and I'll bet a good speaker too.
