1-0 out of 5 stars Seriously Lacking
After having taken the (very) expensive classroom training, attendance at seminars/conventions, I have come to the conclusion that there will "Never" be a book or set of books that will cover what someone needs in order to fully understand the workings of DNN without paying the extreme prices for official DNN corp training and support. Too many "secrets" exist within DNN to be published in printed material. Professional skinning results require support and extra training (even to comply with published HTMl/XHTML standards), let alone ADA compliance.

DNN may be "Free", but the training, seminars, books and paid for support are NOT. Beware "Free" Gifts. The DNN corporation is making their money off of support for a product that doesn't even rate within the top 30 content management systems.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not really for Developers
An interesting enough background history of DNN with a bit of technical information thrown in and put into context. But don't buy this book if you expect it to help you build your own modules.

2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed
If you are hoping to get help installing DotNetNike you will be disappointed in this book.

2-0 out of 5 stars not enough for anybody
hard to read, not complete, messy but still something that brings you forward when you have no access to other resources.
Still compared with what you can download for free from the DNN homepage (especially the training videos) this book is a waste of money and time for the novice as well as for the experienced professional.

1-0 out of 5 stars Bad Book.
When I first say DNN and the interface I was impressed until I tried to actually use it. The book is by far poor and riddle with mistakes and a discombobulated mess. I would not recommend anyone using DNN or buying the book. ... Read more

Product Description
101 Ways To Beat The Blues is a collection of fun childish remedies to beat the cyclical blues. The book is illustrated with simple joyful stick figure drawings and the remedies include such things as rolling down a grassy hill, running through a sprinkler or picking a bucket of berries. Although the book is primarily intended as a remedy for the blues if you actually do the things prescribed in this book you will lead a richer, fuller life. The book has been described by some as 'packaged joy'. It was first printed in 1984 and quickly sold through its first print. The newer second edition has seven new remedies, a few new drawings and an updated cover.The author, Bruce McCulloch describes this second revised print as the progressive realization of a dream. The book is a great addition to your personal library and also makes a great gift item. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Childhood Bliss
101 Ways to Beat the Blues captures the best elements of childhood - joy, simplicity and playfulness.It reminds me it is 'never too late to have a happy childhood'.I especially like remedy #79, building a fort out of couch cushions, blankets and pillows and dragging wonderful things into your fort.I also like #2, pull out a copy of your favorite children's story and read it cover to cover.I work a stressful job and I bring the book with me when I travel, it keeps me sane and is a fantastic stress release.I highly recommend it!

5-0 out of 5 stars 'Blue Gold'
I call this Book 'Blue Gold'. I have always looked through the Pictures in a book first (if it has them) - this is probably part of the reason that I became a 'Tarot Card' Reader.Pictures can Reflect a whole story. This book is inspiration!- with just the pictures alone and the unique things going on in the background; messages on signs,little animals, symbols of Musical Notes, Trees, and especially the Smile on the Sun! That's why remedy #54 of 'Toasting the Sun" is my Favorite! Pure Joy.That is why the book is also a starter kit for "Getting to Know Yourself!" I also appreciate remedy #46 the Master Strategy Session (with one year plans, five year plans, and ten year plans) even though my master strategy is one day at a time and one year at a time; and #62 - the 'People Collection' - writing your name in a center of paper and then surrounding your name with a 'swarm' of names of all the people that are meaningful in your life - your People Collection!A great tool for learning, JOY, and Inspiration.

5-0 out of 5 stars The perfect everyday companion!
I love, love, love this book!!It is the perfect everyday companion!I bought this book back in 1984 when it was first published.I went back to the store and bought every copy they had, so I could give it to all of my friends.What a charming little gem and I'm soooooo glad it is back in print!If you take these practices literally, they will really lighten you up and shift your mood! How can you be in a bad mood after utilizing this remedy....ex.#16 Take your shoes off and walk barefoot around the block...boy was my 4 year old happy when we did this remedy together!Thisbook is a great teaching tool for kids and grown ups alike!Buy it now!!! ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Ugg...
I am very disappointed with this book. As others have said, most of the content is already available on the Net. The install chapter is the same garbage that is in the install doc that you can download from the DNN site (that was last updated in 2006). Even though the title of the book is "Professional DotNetNuke 4.0" the install chapter is heavily focused on version 3. Guess what - if I wanted to know how to install version 3, I would have purchased a book on version 3.

Here is how the version 4 install instructions start: "This section focuses only on the differences between the v3.x and v4.x Install/Source installations. For more detailed instructions, see the appropriate section in the v3.x installation instructions." So you have to read the part about version 4, but are often referred back to the version 3 instructions. This is a book on version 4. It's just pure laziness that the install instructions for version 4 aren't complete.

Do yourself a favor and find a different book.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good book, bad technology.
If you are unlucky enough to get tasked with working with this godawful technology, I guess you have one of two options:

1) Buy this book. It's far, far from being comprehensive, but it's enough to keep you treading water for awhile.
2) Get a new job. This is my personal recommendation.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not too helpful
This book might be the worst software book I have read. The most helpful thing in the book is the appendix with dotnetnuke related links. The examples are lame and the content is scattered like a bunch of different people wrote sections in a vacuum. No flow.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Buy very Infomative
When I started with DotNetNuke a year ago I knew absolutely nothing about it.I bought a copy of professional DotNetNuke 4 read it cover to cover and it did wonders.It is very easy to understand it covers everything you need to know, and best of all it is a great reference even when you have experience with DotNetNuke.I still reach for this book to answer most of my questions.

2-0 out of 5 stars Exactly What You Don't Need To Use DotNetNuke 4.x
This book is NOT for you if you need to seriously use DotNetNuke or if you are going to embark on custom module development.

This book is definitely for you if you want to know why Shaun Walker and the other core folks made certain decisions from 1.x through 4.x. This is only useful if you have to write a review or report on DotNetNuke for a magazine or blog.

I've been using DotNetNuke seriously since before it was DotNetNuke and I have read all the books written about DotNetNuke through version 4.x. Frustratingly, none of the books gets my recommendation and this particular book is at the bottom. This book is full of general explanations that do you no good if you need to use DotNetNuke.

This book is a shining example of the Achilles heel of DotNetNuke: it's a framework by architects, for architects.

If you want to see what DotNetNuke ought to be more like, get the XMod module (it's a third-party product and I'm not affiliated with it in anyway and I'm not going to give you a link to it, just search for XMod).

XMod is doing what DotNetNuke should be doing because XMod is a user's product. If you don't really want to make your own module or find that the documentation on customizing DNN just does not cut it -- get something like XMod. You'll still be using DotNetNuke but something like XMod is well documented and provides many duplicate features of DNN that accomplish functions similar to DNN but in a much, much more robust and usable way.

In the case of both DNN and XMod the "user" refers to a developer.

Don't let anyone fool you, DNN is a developer's product and you need to know a lot about all the web applicaiton technologies involved and ought to be able to use Visual Studio and SQL at a minimum.

But the nutty thing about this book is that it spends half its time speaking above the developer talking about architectural decisions and other esoterica that will not tell you enough to mimic the architecture or use the code unless you are already a DNN expert developer.

This book will drive you mad if you are a developer who is not afraid to compile a VS project and you are looking for an answer such as, "How do I just add a couple of columns to the Survey module table, a bit of extra business logic and a few cosmetic changes I need?" This book will only reiterate that DNN modules are scattered all over the place in this provider and that or this App_Code folder or that. And that DNN achieves an oh-so-wonderful but madingly obfuscatory 'separation of Church and State' architecture.

The rest of the time this book talks below the developer and gives worthless "For Dummies" information about how to use the various modules like Announcements and Links. For goodness sake Wrox, how in the world did you pass off such a disjoint amalgam of chapters?

DotNetNuke is a very good application framework. Today (Spring 2007) DotNetNuke 4.5 is the best starting point for your web application regardless of size or deployment. DNN blows the LAMP alternatives out of the water.

It remains to be seen if DNN will continue to be needed. My prediciton is "No". DNN is already being absorbed into .NET & Visual Studio and will continue to be absorbed. The only wildcard is the need for Microsoft to present the illusion of "Open Source". It is an illusion because in truth, Microsoft directly funds and virtually controls DotNetNuke. (Sorry, Shaun, it's a fact even you admit in this book. But it's okay with me and most DNN users.)

Even though this book spends and inordinate amount of time explaining "For Dummies" details, it does not provide enough to be useful! For instance, it tells yous about the editor and the discussion module and then promptly dismisses both as inferior to modules you ought to go download. So, you are left on your own to use a module that is not documented.

Trying to develop a custom module in any version of DotNetNuke is not for the uninitiated and chances are you bought this book because you are endeavoring to create a custom module. You would think this book would excel at providing assistance to the custom module developer. But alasit does not.

It is full of "we did this in version 3 because people wanted that in version 2, etc." rather than getting down and dirty into custom module development. Also the examples are incomplete snippets and only in VB.

I will conclude this epistle with a plea to Shaun and the Core: Stop writing books! Instead, provide thorough, updated online documentation, tutorials and private forums. I'd pay way more than the price of this book for a library of sample projects (And please in C#!) with tutorials and explicit instructions. For instance, take Michael Washington's tutorials. I'd pay for access to that type of resource if it were fleshed out a bit more, presented in a more organized fashion and included in-depth documentation and access to private forums to ask questions and get help when deadlines need to be met (on a pay-per-use basis if necessary).

Trying to follow an example in this book will drive you mad because it always leaves out all the REALLY IMPORTANT details like paths, settings, options, creating and configuring IIS for webhost sites versus localhost sites etc. Constantly the book says things like, "If your site is hosted, you'll have to do this part differently." REALLY!? Just HOW is it done differently!? THAT'S WHAT I BOUGHT THE BOOK FOR!

P.S. It is quite evident that few of the Core Team actually use DotNetNuke. The Core really needs to add some serious users to its ranks. Right now it is just a bunch of (very good) system programmers. System programmers we all know are topnotch in their areas of expertise but usually suck at knowing what makes an application a winner with the end users. The upshot is that we who do know the latter end up spending the bulk of our DNN time tweaking under, over and around the ugliness and clumsiness of DNN. This ugly clumsiness can be seen architecturally where too many times, when you need another of something you have to create a new modules and there is no way you (the developer) are going to let end users add modules to pages. So you end up not being able to use a module only because you cannot get "another" one without adding a new module to a page. ... Read more

Excerpt: Last Will and Temperament (also known as "Boot to the Head" or "Mr. Muldoon's Will") is a comedy skit done by the Canadian comedy troupe The Frantics on their CBC radio series "Frantic Times" and is heard in their 1984 album of the same name. This introduced the phrase that became their trademark, which would be used in the sketch Ti Kwan Leep three years later in their catch phrase titled album. The premise is that there is a will reading of one Arthur Durham Muldoon to his overly emotional sister Jenny, her wimpy husband Hank, his drunken brother Hedge, know-it-all-nephew Ralston, and his caretaker Ms. Mulroy. All are present for this reading and everyone thinks they are getting a piece of his fortune. The executor of the estate gives Jenny, "who cried crocodile tears" after begging for money from him, and her husband boots to their heads.
