Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Philipp Krenn lives in Vienna, Austria and studies software engineering. Besides being a student, he also works as a freelance IT trainer and web developer (mostly using SilverStripe, but also some Drupal, CakePHP, and Smarty). Philipp started using SilverStripe in 2007 while he was one of the students at the Google Summer of Code improving the project. While kicking off the effort to support multiple databases (besides MySQL), he got a good insight into the inner workings of the project. Building on top of that, he became an expert in developing web applications with SilverStripe.

This book on the other hand takes the bottom-up approach. BAM! After an inadequate introduction in chapter 1, in chapter 2 it gets straight into the details of the API, function calls and their parameters, etc. It doesn't pause to explain why you might be doing the things it asks you to do. Not only that, but if you follow along with their tutorial approach, they don't supply pictures of what you are supposed to see on the screen at any point. I'm near the end of chapter 2 and I know less about SS than when I started (I had the advantage of completing half of the other book before I started on this one.)
This is NOT a beginner's guide to SS. It is written from the point of view of someone already very familiar with hand-crafting websites and doesn't bring out the fantastic power of what a good CMS can provide. I don't know who would need this book. I've given it 2 stars because I might be able to use it as a reference book at some point (maybe).
The Wiley book is vastly superior for someone learning SS. It makes me wonder about the 5 star reviews that this book has been given. Are those people actually learning SS? I'm giving up on Krenn's book and am going to finish the Wiley book.
Krenn is currently finishing his double master in Software Engineering & Internet Computing and Information & Knowledge Management at the Vienna University, and his knowledge of programming concepts and theories shows; he smoothly guides the reader through the Silverstripe system and highlights its ORM features and clean object oriented structure.
The book does show some similarities to the official Silverstripe book by Ingo Schommer (I read the German version in 2009), in that it approaches the Silverstripe novice and explains the system in its entirety. Having worked with Silverstripe since 2007, this is off course superfluous for readers like me, but essential in a book of this kind, especially as it is only the second book available on Silverstripe.
While I really liked Schommer's book I feel that Krenn's book touches some more general needs and considerations for building a site or a web application. Furthermore it comes in very handy that the book is only recently published, and contains up-to date information, as well as it introduces how to base a Silverstripe site purely on HTML5.
If you'd like to learn about Silverstripe, or you'd like to improve your Silverstripe knowledge today, I'd recommend this book over Schommer's.
Foremost because of its recent publishing, and thus inclusion of 2.4 only features as partial caching and short codes, as well as up-to-date information on error handling and logging, and information on Silverstripe's recent activities regarding structure changes.
But secondly also because of the website example built throughout the book, giving the reader an easy-to-adapt blueprint for whatever website he's working on.
