A wild virtual party was held today celebrating the official release of the osCmax 2.5 User Manual, the second book this year by author Kerry Watson.

Austin, TX, March 18, 2012 --( Today the "ShowMe Guides(tm) osCmax 2.5 User Manual" book release party was held honoring popular Open Source eCommerce author Kerry Watson. This is Watson's second book about the open source ecommerce program osCmax, having previously written the user manual for the osCmax 2.0 version. Her first book on osCommerce was published in 2003.

osCmax uses osCommerce as the foundation of their program, but they add dozens of extra useful features for store owners, giving it the well-deserved slogan of "osCommerce, maximized."

The new book covers every menu of the program, new as well as old features. The manual is written for new osCmax users who have no graphics or programming skills. All you need are some product photos and a store logo, and a willingness to try something new.

A free, four-chapter preview of the book is available, and includes a free Admin Menu Cheatsheet, Quick Install Guide & 30-Minute Quick Setup Guide. If you like the free materials, purchase the full manual.

In addition to covering every menu of the program, the full user manual includes bonus material:
- List of recommended web hosts that will install osCmax for free
- How and where to hire technical pros to help you with your store
- How to install a professional template, and
