1Not worth it - stay away
By James Tainter
This book reads as if it was written over the course of a weekend. I would not recommend it to anyone looking to gain any valuable knowledge related to WooCommerce. I have been a software developer for 25 years - and have been exposed to my fair share of technical books as well as written my own technical documentation. This book brought nothing to the table. Had it been a $12 book, I wouldn't be complaining that much, but for $33... it's an insult.
