If you’re into the business of developing WordPress themes or plugins (or both), you might want this package. You’ll get:

  • the ebook (PDF) of A Practical Guide to WordPress and the GPL;
  • a professionally narrated audio book, enabling you to listen to the book when you’re on the go (narrated by Steve Chase); and
  • access to a terms of use builder through which you can build draft online terms of use for your WordPress commercial themes or plugins shop, with open and honest GPL licensing as well as protections for your business.

  • the professionally narrated audio book, enabling you to listen to the book when you’re on the go (narrated by Steve Chase).

3. The book package
