Posted by Updated on

This is an exclusive guest post by , posted on June 19th, 2013.

I'm excited to announce the launch of my 3rd book, The Tao of WordPress! Every page of The Tao of WordPress is carefully distilled, refined, and focused on WordPress. I wrote this book for beginners, students, designers, admins, enthusiasts, and anyone who wants to rock their own WordPress-powered site.

In clear, easy-to-read text, the book guides you through the most important, useful, and awesome things you can do with the World's #1 publishing platform. The book covers hosting, installation, configuration, security, optimization, SEO, customization and everything in between, including entire chapters on plugins, themes, and techniques.

The Tao of WordPress

The Tao of WordPress delivers 8+ years of experience and knowledge rolled up and distilled into a simple, concise guide. Learn how to use built-in settings, plugins, and themes to build your own sites and rule the Web. Discover how to get the most out of WordPress by using it for what it is, effortlessly and intuitively through the Admin Area. Take the journey to unlock the power of WordPress and use it like a zen master to build anything you can imagine.

    So does this mean there’ll be no more updates to Digging into WP?

    • Vitaly June 20, 2013

      I believe, this should be considered a different book since there is a separate members area for it.

      • Robyn Gallant June 22, 2013

        There may be a separate members area for it but the contents are the same as Digging into WP. So, please answer question from Rob D. Will there be no more updates to Digging into WP? Will we now have to purchase new book in order to continue to get updates. Honestly, the book is not easy to follow if it is not kept up-to-date.

        • Jeff Starr

          Actually the contents are not the same at all — as Vitaly mentions it’s an entire new book, with it’s own focus, design, and content.

          To clear up any confusion, I wrote a new book on WP called the Tao of WP that’s aimed at beginners, students, and basically admins/users in general. Digging into WP is aimed more at intermediates and goes into more code and advanced techniques.

          I hope this helps!

      Not at all, we’re planning the next update for later this Summer :)
