The book is well written, easy to read and understand, covering community-created modules, which add specific functionality to the Drupal web framework (Core).
The basic format is to discuss a case study for a particular type of web site, such as an e-commerce site and cover what modules could be used to build and administer that web site through the "Hands-On" sections where you can create it step-by-step.
Some of the types of web sites include Job posting, Product reviews, Wiki, Multilingual, Managing Publishing workflow, Photo gallery, Event Management, and Online store.
The Appendixes have information on how to download, install, update Drupal and modules.
This book is a great reference for anybody who uses Drupal for web building.
