  1. I was going to preorder it but sadly I found out that amazon doesn’t accept paypal payments…

    Is there another way of getting this book possibly paying it with paypal??

    • Not currently. Once the book is released it will be available at most book stores and on their online sites.

  2. What is the release date for the book? has it listed as February 28th while the US site has it for March.

    • End of March is what we’ve been told, but sometimes it can be released earlier depending on when it’s actually printed.

  3. I loved your other book (Professional WordPress: Design and Development). I look forward to reading this one too!!!
