From the book’s Introduction
WordPress is the most popular online content management software on the planet. Between the hosted service at WordPress.com and the self-hosted softw re available at WordPress.org, millions of bloggers use WordPress, and to date, WordPress powers 30 percent of the Internet. That’s impressive.
With WordPress, you can truly tailor a website to your own tastes and needs. With no cost for using the benefits of the WordPress platform to publish content on the web, WordPress is as priceless as it is free. WordPress makes writing, editing, and publishing content on the Internet a delightful, fun, and relatively painless experience, whether you’re a publisher, a designer, a developer, or a hobbyist blogger.
