4Good for new users to Magento 2
By Amazon Customer
For anyone building a new website on Magento 2, this is a required reading. It gives you a good overall framework to build on further knowledge. If you are an advanced Magento programmer this may not be for you as I think its written for beginners. Cheers!

5Perfect for readers who are eager to comprehend the essence of complicated Magento system
By Amazon Customer
This book like a woman's skirt; long enough to cover the subject and short enough to create interest :)) perfect for readers who are eager to comprehend the essence of complicated Magento system. Many thanks to the writers and to Amazon for this excellent publication.

5A great book for non beginners in Magento
By Andre Gugliotti
Four years ago, when I first read the previous edition of this book, I tought: "Wow, this is the book I'd love to have written". Well, on this second edition, at least I can say: "I was honored about being invited to review the second edition and after that I love even more this book".
That said, I can state that Bret Williams and Jonathan Bownds have done an amazing job when updating and expanding this "Mastering Magento" book, including the new version of this powerful ecommerce platform.
This is not a book for beginners as its title says. But if you have the basic knowledge about Magento, this is the book you must have on your shelf or e-reader. It contains a series of "how I didn't think about that before" moments, explaining how to get your store into the next level and to get more and more from Magento. The most important, you have a step by step, with the major parts of the process of launching and running an online store with Magento 2.
