Who will like this book?

I'm not going to lie to you, you might need developer skills to be able to understand some parts of the book. However, most of the book can be read without technical knowledge. You'll be able to comprehend most of information which might help you improve your store and learn how to configure it.

What did I like about this book?

This book covers every chapter in-depth. You can get your hands dirty on code, server setup and a lot of Magento Admin tuning.

Each section will also give you an explanation of the elements involved such as catalog fields, scope, attribute sets and more concepts.

What did I not like about this book?

I might have liked to see more code such as extensions but maybe that's because I'm a developer. Still, if you want to learn about coding extensions and snippets I'm sure you can find similar code focused eBooks.
