4Well Worth the Price
By SherryB
WooCommerce was eating my lunch while setting it up on one of my websites. I'm not a novice to web development - but not all that experienced in the WordPress world. I got the book to help me become more proficient. It is well written and I believe is going to just fit the bill for what I needed.
