  1. Looks like a great read, although in the preview PDF I was a bit surprised to see how to create custom taxonomies and custom post types listed in the TOC.

  2. I have read Jeff Starr’s book Digging into WordPress, which he co-authored with Chris Coyier. I am looking forward to purchasing this one too. His work on Perishable Press is epic I must say, great effort!

  3. I’ve not read anything by Jeff but the layout of this book looks fantastic.

    The reason I’ve heard of Jeff Starr is because I use one of his plugins: Block Bad Queries (BBQ)

    BTW just noticed your link to “Version 2 Of DiggingIntoWordPress Is Out” dated March 2010.
