I was asked by Packt Publishing to review a new book entitled Magento 1.4 Development Cookbook. I was excited for the opportunity to review a recent development book, hoping I might get some new fresh perspectives.
Before I get into the details, I highly recommend avoiding this book. Unless you want a reference of how NOT to develop properly with Magento, do not buy it. Save your money and time and just spend a few hours looking through Magento’s core modules and learn by example. That to me has been the best reference in learning how to develop with Magento.
