I think you mean "Definitive."

Of course, you are right. The

Of course, you are right. The book is definite and definitive, I hope, but the title is the Definitive Guide to Drupal 7. Thanks for pointing it out!

Any Plans to make this

Any Plans to make this available in e-book format? (Preferably Kindle)

On Apress's website, there is a link to purchase the book in ebook format. http://www.apress.com/9781430231356 Not sure about whether they'll do it in Kindle, though.

This book is very poorly put

This book is very poorly put together.
If you wish to use this book to learn about drupal, be careful.
It leaves all sorts of little things out that make it very difficult to follow (if you do not already know the subject material).
The code examples are not always made to actually use.
For example, in chapter 19, it uses functions that are not defined until the next chapter (hence you cannot actually run any code written for the rest of chapter 19).

I find myself spending alot of time rereading parts, because it is written assuming you already know the material. The author makes many assumptions about what the reader knows.

Horrible book to learn from, decent for reference if you already know drupal 7.

I am a professional drupal

I am a professional drupal developer since years and i think your book on the drupal 7 version guide will be very much useful for professional developers like me. I will definitely purchase the same as it seems to be informative book.
