    Books about WordPress and blogging

    Do you think books about WordPress and blogging is useful ?
    (especially if you want to do business with blogging)

    For instance :

    WordPress For Dummies by Lisa Sabin-Wilson

    WordPress 2 (Visual QuickStart Guide) by Maria Langer and Miraz Jordan

    WordPress Complete: set up, customize, and market your blog by Hasin Hayder

    Start Your Own Blogging Business by Entrepreneur Press and J.S. McDougall

    Blogging for Business by Shel Holtz and Ted Demopoulos

    Publish and Prosper: Blogging for Your Business by DL Byron and Steve Broback

    .../...

    The best information source is the internet or this kind of books can help ?

    Is it not too much time consuming to read this kind of stuff ?

    Any opinion ?

    Any advice ?

    Well yes, it's definitely time consuming, but no learning is a waste of time. I suppose it depends on what your goal is.

    I have the visual quickstart guide and it's pretty basic. if you're just starting out, it would be a worthwhile read. if you already know how to install and configure wordpress, don't waste your money on it.

    I think learning anything will help you at one point or another...

    I say, if you have the time, read a few of them and see what you learn... then APPLY it.
