Pro Drupal Development book for Drupal 5

John VanDyk and Matt Westgate have written a Drupal book for developers: Pro Drupal Development, published by Apress.

Last week, I finally got a copy of the book in the mail and now I've read it, I can say that it is exactly what we expected it to be: awesome.

So, John and Matt -- for the love of God -- make sure there will be a Drupal 6 version of that book.

More information, including a free chapter on how to theme Drupal, can be found at

Great book for a great product by great people.

A must read for all Drupal developers, and if you already have a paper-copy, also buy the eBook to put on your USB-stick, smart phone or portable so you can read it again and again and again ...

This was exactly the book I (and with me thousands of others) were waiting for for a long time.

The pricing on and seems to differ by a large degree: €32.93 when converting the dollar price, and €45.37 when converting the British pound price. Additionally, on, there is a $15.30 reduction, so it actually costs €21.73 on These prices are without shipping costs to the EU.

Although I only read the first chapters yet I find the book awesome. I was waiting for this book from day one using Drupal.

Remember to order the book through the link on the book's website so Drupal Association would benefit a little bit of it.
