5My Go-To book for our farm's website.
By PlainAcres
I used this as my go-to guide to understand what my programmer was saying to me. He speaks fluent Computer - I do not. I felt a little less stupid after reading this. Also, it made me a more knowledgeable consumer. I was able to express some opinions on how I wanted the farm website set up that I would not have had if I had not read the book. It could also be titled "Owning a Website" for dummies.

5Building Web-sites for Dummies
By Theresa Moore
The Dummies series of how to books is an amazing resource for those of us who are not professionals in any number of fields..
Whenever I want to do something (and learn to do it well) I head for these books.. and I buy all my books through Amazon
These are invaluable books and not for Dummies at all.. but as a paralegal ~ I am not a web designer and I am not an accountant ~ I am not lots of things. But, if you can read, you can do. Great books. Buy them for what you don't know but what to do,
