I picked up a copy of Professional DotNetNuke 4 from Wrox Press yesterday. Chapter one was so interesting, I couldn't put it down. It was quite fortunate that I started reading it, given my earlier troubles the same day with iTunes.
The first chapter is by Shaun Walker and he paints a really interesting picture of the history of the product, some if his biggest mistakes, strokes of luck and gems of wisdom he discovered along the way. Its a very interesting chapter and I highly recommend, if not require, reading it if your involved at any level with DNN.
I admit that I've been a little disappointed with some features in DNN. Perhaps I've been swayed by some nay sayers, but after reading that rah-rah chapter, I'm back on board. I feel its an outstanding product for its niche. I'm sure other applications can fit similar niches quite well, but to be sure, DNN does what it says, very well. I'm sure that I'll also pursue a custom WCM route at the same time for a variety of reasons, but I sure do appreciate all that DNN does.

Here are some interesting points I learned in the first chapter:
