It’s been about six months since .htaccess made easy was released, and since that time the reviews and feedback has been tremendous! Here are some of my favorite testimonials, reviews, and tweets.

Jeff has long been the go-to guy for all things .htaccess. I always think of .htaccess as pretty much programming voodoo, where saying a chant as you save the file has about the same chance of working as any actual characters I type. But of course that isn’t true, and I’m glad Jeff is here to help us through it with this book. – Chris Coyier @ css-tricks.com

If you ever wanted to finally fully understand .htaccess and all its peculiarities, this comprehensive, well-written book will be just what you are looking for. – Vitaly Friedman @ smashingmagazine.com

I’ll probably never master regex or the mysterious ways of the .htaccess file but thanks to Jeff I am a few steps closer to being a little more in control of both! It’s all in here, from redirects, to optimisation through to a dedicated section on using .htaccess to super charge your WordPress site. I can’t recommend it enough – grab a copy now. – Keir Whitaker @ keirwhitaker.com

In .htaccess made easy, Jeff Starr has carried out the difficult task of creating a guide that provides instruction for beginners while acting as a useful reference that advanced users can dip in and out of. This beautiful guide to .htaccess is delivered in Jeff’s good-humoured and engaging style, making it readable, accessible, and a must-have for your web development library. – Siobhan McKeown @ siobhanmckeown.com

This is a nicely conceived book, with a professional presentation, well written step by step technical reference with a human touch in the explanation. – Leon Fernandez

This book is great … I’ve already learnt how to enable compression through the .htaccess which I was doing through PHP before! If I were to try and learn everything in this book off of the internet, then … well I wouldn’t even try! It makes things so simple and breaks them down, I actually know what some of the flags mean that I’ve mean using for years now! Thanks so much for a great resource. – David

I’ve been looking for a resource like this for ages. – Nick W.

I purchased the .htaccess book and really like it. I am a slow learner and need things to be well explained. The web documentation at apache.org always perplexed me. Your book fits the bill. In its clean explanations, I have learned a lot about how Apache works. – Tim Thorp

I recently purchased a copy of both .htaccess made easy and Digging Into WordPress (print edition). These books deal in-depth with all of the topics which soon or later a web/WordPress developer needs to cope with. Also customer support was excellent! – Daniele Alvaro

Your book .htaccess made easy has been so helpful, I am sure others have found it equally so. I cannot thank you enough. – David K.
