This is helpful for the beginner Drupal user. No mention of how to set up videos on your new site. It's done by topic. Some chapters, like the one on building a store, were not of interest to me, but contained general information invaluable to Drupal. I wish I didn't have to read those chapters to get the info. Oh well. All-in-all it is far better than Dupal for Dummies.
