New Magento Book Coming in May

After months of diligent work, my book, Mastering Magento, is scheduled for publication next month from Packt Publishing, one of the world’s largest publishers of computer-related books. This Magento book is aimed at all levels of users, especially Magento users who want to truly understand the power of the Magento platform.

While suffering through the trials and tribulations of learning Magento, I found that there was a great lack of a concise Owner’s Manual for Magento users. While the Magento website has some documentation — and there are lots of online blogs with helpful advice — there remained a void. A void I decided to try to fill.

Although I have been successful in selling my book Managing Multiple Stores in Magento at 10 Cent Books, I really wanted to partner with a large, reputable publisher to bring a complete Magento guide to the marketplace.

Last year, I contacted Packt Publishing, one of the world’s leading publishers of computer-related books, and pitched the idea of Mastering Magento. They were excited, as they, like me, know the Magento user base is huge. And while Packt publishes several books relating to Magento, most applied to older versions and none were what I would consider a definitive guide to Magento.

After laboring for months, the Magento book has been officially announced on the Packt website. Visitors can already pre-order the book, which is due for release sometime in May. I’m working with the talented editorial and technical staff at Packt on final proofing now, so the publication is eminent.

I noticed the book is also for pre-sale now at Amazon, as well.

    • 1.7 was not stable before we had to put the book to bed, so, no, I can’t say it is for 1.7. However, I’m working with a 1.7 installation now, and so far, I haven’t found any significant changes that would negate a good portion of the book.
