    "The most important internet's book." I was a little worried at first because the book is so long (almost 300 pages). The book is a little wordy but covers the topic just fine. Like a few other people have mentioned, I do not think the book targeted any specific audience very well. As a long time programmer and web application developer I was able to breeze through the book with very few problems. The books says it is for anyone who is interested in creating a social networking web site. I highly doubt a complete newbie could pull this off though.

    " An operational Bible for Drupal user." I'm just learning Drupal and this book has been invaluable. Reading this book is like being able to start out on your first solo project after being on a team that has already completed 9 Drupal projects. You'll already have a set of "tried and true" design patterns to leverage and know how Drupal sites tend to be built. This books can only cover a handful of the numerous Drupal modules out there, but it saves you time by pointing out some of the most useful and commonly-used modules and showing you how to use them in practical situations. If you are a person that are looking for to start building social networking website on real projects, this should be your next read.

    A very Rare Drupal Book- A good first step in creating social network with drupal. I have to say that this is one of the best newbie books out there for Drupal. While I'm not a Drupal newbie, I enjoyed this book and can see the benefit it would hold for any audience. The author assumes that you have no knowledge of Drupal and walks you step by step from the beginning of the install to configuring your website, to adding the functionality needed to start building a social networking site. The directions are simple and easy to follow, but beyond giving directions, the author explains the "why" of doing things, which is great when you're thinking of moving forward. This book will serve as a great launching pad for anyone thinking of building not just a social networking site, but really anything with Drupal, because it gives you a good hands on experience building a Drupal website. If you're experienced in Drupal you may want to skip the first couple of chapters, but there's... More > something to be learned from this book no matter your level of experience.< Less

    " Excellent Resources - I can't found resources like this elsewhere." I wish I had gotten this book back in January when I first started planning a social network I'm working on! As I read the book, I found myself thinking, "Wow, this is perfect! I had no idea adding X was so easy!" I kept reading and quickly realized I was doing that for almost every section. # Great for teaching the proper way to run a website - not just social networks, but any site that has more than one user. # Step by step instructions with an example website to follow along, but still easy to understand what's going on without actually making their website. # Helps teach different ways to build user interaction with administrators, other users and the website in general. CONCLUSION: This is a great book to read. I can't begin to say how much it's helped me so far, and I'm confident that it's tips for modules and user interaction will influence how I build nearly every other website I make...

    Somehow good for both experienced and novice drupalites I really like this book, it covers a lot of territory in a very practical way, while also digging into the "why's" of things should be done. Understanding the "why's" is important so that if you want your site to do something different, you can make a good decision about the implementation.
