Your tutorials on lynda.com were really helpful, they make it really easy for non-programmers.

I just finished your Drupal 7 Essential Training on lynda.com. It was very informative. I also bought your Drupal 7: Visual QuickStart Guide book from Amazon. I'm about half-way through it. I know there is overlap in the information, but I find that watching the videos and reading the book helps it stick. I have a MODX and WP background, so your training really helped me with absorbing Drupal. Thank you.
