If you have tried following WordPress tutorials on youtube, you will probably have realized that they are a great source for specific pieces of information you were searching for. However, one of the biggest drawbacks is that these videos  represent fragments of the bigger picture. Hence, unless you're an advanced user already, you'll find it difficult to connect the various dots, follow a red thread throughout your project or simply understand what is being explained!
