    Wordpress can get really in-depth. You can build full custom sites on top of it turning it into a content management system. Replace that with "Farmville for Dummies", which exists.

    wordpress for dummies is actually pretty useful if you are building a website and of course if you are using wordpress.

    btw, was there a joke in this post somewhere?

    With so many people can`t spell their own names these books must sell really well. I, on the other hand, am self taught from Dos 1 to Win 8. Didn`t need no book for dummies . . .

    <old joke>

    There are no stupid questions, but there are plenty of inquisitive idiots.

    </old joke>

    I`ve no clue about the mechanics of using Facebook myself, since I don`t use it and I`ve no desire to. And I`m only vaguely aware of some of the other topics like Spotify and Pinterest too.

    When I was just starting out my company some years ago, to get some cash flow I used to supplement my income by teaching a basic computer skills course to complete novices of all ages that had no idea about technology. You`d tell them to move the mouse over to the left of the screen, and they`d physically pick it up off the desk and place it on the left hand side of their keyboard. There`s a difference between being merely without knowledge, and being actually dumb. Most of them weren`t stupid people, they just didn`t have some basic knowledge they were going to need yet.

    Manga for Dummies... it exists!
    Hentai for Dummies... amazingly does not! lolz!

    It`s true, these books are intended for the absolute beginners, not "rocket surgeons" like every IABer seems to be.

    What is more foolish: to ask a stupid question or to remain silently ignorent?

    I get that some people have no idea what they`re dong with computers, but to call THAT Computer Science is just absurd.

    It`s like claiming a book about throwing frisbees is "Aerodynamics".
