Overall, I think this is a good book for the DNN beginners and is more suitable to the non-technical people, who may be administrating the portal, but not developing for it. If you're a hard core DNN developer, DNN's book is probably the better technical manual, but this book makes an excellent secondary reference.
The subject matter is dealt with in a manner that is clear and easy to follow, and the screenshots that are used enhance the clarity of the topic being discussed. Overall, this book is a good resource for both novices and more experienced developers.
