Pro Drupal Development book for Drupal 6

Less than two years ago, I wrote the foreword for the first edition of Pro Drupal Development book. What was missing at that time was a developer book for Drupal. By writing the first version of this book, John and Matt made an incredible contribution to Drupal's steady growth. The book cracked the Amazon Top 100 and was one of my personal highlights of 2007. More than 10,000 copies were sold! It still blows my mind to think that one book has given the world more than 10,000 new or greatly improved Drupal developers.

Since the first version of this book was published, we released Drupal 6, a big step forward, with new and improved APIs. In fact, Drupal 6 had over 700 individual contributors who have patches included in the core code. Together, we've made important theme system improvements, better support for multi-lingual websites, an improved menu system, form API improvements, JavaScript goodies, and much more. The net result is that Drupal 6 is an even better web application development platform than Drupal 5.

Probably to John and Matt's despair (sorry!), all of the chapters of the original Pro Drupal Development book went partially out of date. Fortunately, the second edition of this book fixes all that and it started shipping a couple of weeks ago! Check it out at http://drupalbook.com.

The second edition of Pro Drupal Development covers all of the capabilities and developer facilities in Drupal 6, and provides deep insight into the inner workings and design choices behind Drupal 6. If anything was missing for Drupal 6, it was this book, and I'm already indebted to John for revising and expanding it.
