Mahara 1.4 Cookbook is out

Mahara 1.4 Cookbook written by Ellen Marie Murphy is a great source of information on Mahara features and functionality. It offers a number of useful "recipes" on Mahara that are grouped into chapters, each of which is focused on the particular area such as Groups, Social and professional portolios, text and graphics activities.
No matter if you are the teacher or administrator, you will definitely find something new and useful. The book can be used as a reference to find an answer “How to do that in Mahara” or just as a source of useful approaches for Mahara practitioner. Each recipe provide in depth step-by-step guide on how to achieve a particular result, starting from brief description, requirements, steps that user need to perform and explanation of what has been done, which is useful for understanding the logic behind the performed action. Where applicable, the references to related recipes in the book are provided as well.
Being Mahara core developer, I think that anyone using Mahara will find this book pretty useful, does not matter if you are a newbie or an experienced user. The book is primarily focused on Mahara 1.4, which has been released in June 2011, but some recipes may work with earlier versions as well.
Many thanks to Packt Publishing for a copy of the eBook for review.
