4Great Way to get a basic store up and Running
By Amazon Customer
This book lays out a great battle plan to get a basic ubercart storefront up and running. It also gives some hints as to how to accomplish more advanced functionality, but doesn't provide a step by step plan on how to actually accomplish the more advanced items, which is understandable because the book would need to be 1000+ pages to give that amount of instructions. If you just need to get a basic eCommerce site up and running I highly recommend this book.

There are a few items that I did get frustrated with, such as getting the nodewords module working with the catalog, and I wish more instructions were given on how to do that, but all in all, I will keep this book handy for future ubercart builds (though with Drupal 7 around the corner, I wonder how much of the information will be deprecated within the next 7 months).

4Amazon purchase of Ubercart 2.x E-commerce on Drupal
By Click
The title says it all. This is a step-by-step guide to installing and configuring Ubercart in Drupal. Although there is a brief section at the front of the book on installing Drupal itself, the underlying assumption by the authors is the reader is familiar with both the concept and operation of Drupal's administration.

If you are new to Drupal, I suggest "Using Drupal", published by O'Reilly books. An excellent starting point, it includes several pre-built profiles that demonstrate Drupal's use in a wide variety of configurations (including one for ecommerce.)

4A Great Book
By Amazon Customer
Explains the the facts of Using Drupal and Ubercart to make a eCommerce website site. Quite detailed and assumes a little Drupal experience. It is still a great book for anyone interested in building a shop online with Drupal to read through.
