I am currently reviewing another book by Packt Publishing called Magento 1.4 Themes Design. Unlike the last book I reviewed, I am quite impressed so far with this book. Much of the work that I do with Magento requires no or very little theming (or, I have others do it). So, this is a great experience for me to read this book.
I hope to have the review done in the next week or two. At this point, I am definitely anticipating a very positive review.
