WordPress Standard Guidebook
- Author: Naoko McCracken & WordPress Japan
- Price: 2,980 yen + tax (approx. $35)
- 344 pages (with CD-ROM)

The book talks about things like getting started with WordPress, setting up a local environment for development, customizing and creating a theme, and installing and making the best use of plugins.
I’d like to thank these theme & plugin authors for letting me include their work in my book. The book explains how to set up these theme/plugins, and includes required files in the CD-ROM.

Wow! That was long :P
Without you guys, I couldn’t have completed this book. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
(By the way, these plugins I picked for the book are all awesome… I recommend checking them out if you haven’t!)
You can purchase this book from limited outlets outside Japan. Amazon.co.jp offers international shipping but it’s pretty pricey. I think the easiest way is to place a special order from Fujisan.com (for US/Canadian residents). Feel free to contact me if you have any question about the book.
