I have that book, along with about 15 others if I am perfectly honest, 
and read through most of them but some have out of date information in 
them I have since found but no worries.

I have written a plugin and would like to write more of them, have also 
coded a theme too but for my own personal use, my design skills are 
somewhat lacking.

The post I have since made on stackexchange is here.
