Global publisher John Wiley & Sons has released their newestVisual Blueprint title -- Mambo: Your Visual Blueprint for Building and MaintainingWebsites with the Mambo Open Source CMS.The title, authored by Ric Shreves, provides the most comprehensive documentationyet released for the award-winning Mambo Content Management System (CMS).

The Mambo system is one of the world s most successful Open Source projects andclaims more than 5 million downloads over the past five years. Shreves adds, Mambois an advanced content management system and a complicated software package. Whilethe system is easy enough for most people to attain a basic proficiency withoutextensive coaching, it is hard to reach the full potential of the system withoutadditional guidance. Wiley s Visual Blueprint series relies on a series of short (one or two page)chapters that focus on the accomplishment of discreet tasks. The chapters areillustrated with screen shots from the system and provide a step-by-step breakdownof exactly what the user needs to do to complete a task successfully. The taskchapters are supplemented by charts and explanatory screens which detail theinterface, the controls and key concepts. The Mambo Visual Blueprint was created to document the current 4.5.4 series and thebrand new 4.6 series of the Mambo CMS. Both the author and the technical editor aremembers of the Mambo Development Team and provide intimate familiarity with thefunctions of the system. Our goal was to create a text which new and mid levels users and administratorscould turn to again and again through the life of their Mambo site. The book is ahands-on reference work, not a theoretical or abstract text, notes Ric Shreves. The book was released on 11 July and is currently available through a wide varietyof retailers.
