Recommend me a Joomla book
The school has agreed to pay for a Joomla book so I've been looking at Amazon but I've not sute which one to go for.
I've built sites before using Dreamweaver but never used Joomla in anger and I know nothing about php so I'm going to need a little help please.
Amazon.co.uk: joomla 2.5

I've got the Joomla Explained book and I wouldn't recommend it - most of the book covers things that I had worked out for myself before I got it, simple stuff such as creating articles and menus, although if you had never used it it would probably be useful.
Thanks to sidewinder from:

Thanks. I forgot to say that I intend to use Home - YOOtheme templates which look very professional for the price.

We use a Yootheme Template for our site. As for a book, I never really read a book it was a case of local install of joomla and played about with it. Yootheme do sample data install, install that and play about with it, break it, install it again until your happy with how things work

Thanks. Couldn't find the sample data so I've emailed them for the link... let's see how quickly they respond.

I would install Joomla and play with it. If you mess it up, just re-install it. That is how I learnt Joomla.

Also, Joomla 3.0.1 is out now. So books for Joomla 2.5 may not be any use

On Yoothemes website. In the themes section>>>downloads link at the top>>>>pick which theme you want it listed as Joomla 2.5 Demo Package as far as I can remember that includes Joomla. Extract that and upload to root of your web server and go through the joomla install
