Wow, wow, wow, I just downloaded your new book and it has to be the best WP training manual that I have ever seen. I love the fresh approach& images/icons that you have used and throughout the manual. You have done the one thing that 99% of all WordPress trainers forget to tell you, and that’s security and how to protect the important files in your robots.txt and .htaccess. [...] Thanks so much for creating such a great WordPress userguide and bible of the best content. — Karen
