  1. I know i’m not an A-lister yet in the WP community, but I would love to review the book. I purchased the first one and enjoyed it greatly – would love to see what changes and updates were made.

  2. sure- I would like to help you and provide feedback.

  4. Count me in! I’d love to review it.

  5. Brad,
    I recently purchased your plugin development book, and it’s great. I actually have your WP Design and I have the Development Book on Pre Order. I’d love to read and review your book for you. I actually recently purchased the domain, which I plan on having a thriving WP Book Community (hopefully).

  6. I really want to learn about that bloggy thing called WordPress. OK… you KNOW I am just kidding!

    Since we’ve talked Army vs. Marines, had a couple beers together, and I am always looking to do more posts on WP resources that are worthwhile, why not send me an autographed book? Hook me up brotha!

  7. I drink beer
    I read book
    I write review

  8. I would love to read the updated version and do a review. I have pretty much all WordPress books and love to continue my learning process on WordPress.

    Hi Brad, would be happy to review it and thus give the review an international flavor. I’m sure that Hal would support that, check with him. Great to see that the 2nd edition is out, enjoyed the first edition already and was looking forward to see what you guys have changed. So please consider me as a reviewer. All the best, Hansjoerg

  13. I’ve been looking forward to this update for a while now. I even added the book to my Christmas list. But if you need a review sooner than that, by all means, send it along 🙂

  14. Mahmoud Ilyan says:

    I read the first edition from this book which i bought it from ebooks because the book for me was the only difinitive guide about a lot of topics and i didnt have time to wait for the print edition, and that’s made a trust between me and the author which made me bought WordPress Plugin Development print edition which is must have book for any wordpress developer, and i’m waiting for the 2nd edition to make a must have library for any web developer

  15. I’d love to be counted as a reviewer. I read the 1st edition back when I knew nothing, and now I have an awesome WordPress business. Thanks!

  16. Hi Brad
    sounds like a plan – I’d enjoy reading and reviewing the book!

  17. I’m up for reviewing it. Version 1 really helped me figure out what the hell I’m doing and would love to help the cause!

  18. I’M IN!!! I do have my copy on pre-order! I would like to find out more about wp!

  19. send one my way and I’ll read it up right fast!

  20. I would LOVE to review the book. While I have been a PHP dev for years I am just now getting into WP theme and plugin development – this would be a great opportunity to see how much the book would help out devs with similar experience, etc.

  21. Hey Brad- looks like you’ve got quite a list already but count me in if you have room for more!

    And congrats on the 2nd edition!

    Hello Brad
    I know you from WordPress Security eBook.
    I downloaded this ebook as an aid to my WP security concerns.
    Yesterday, searching Amazon for WP profissional books I pre-ordered you book 2nd edition to January 2013.
    I am eager to get it.
    Best wishes.
    From Salvador, Bahia, Brazil

  24. I own the book WordPress Plugin Development already and i’d like own this book also. I’m fan of StudioPress themes and i’d like to learn making good Genesis child themes.

  25. I’m developing plugins, most of them not made public yet. I create sites based on WordPress, using child themes and my general WordPress knowledge. I have bought and read the book “WordPress Plugin Development” and was excited about it’s high quality. I have attended a few WordCamps, talked to other plugin developers, and to my surprise, none of them had heard of these excellent books.

    All site developers, advanced users, (child)theme developers and plugin developers should read this book.

    I will be happy to write ans publish a review, both in English and Norwegian.
