Odoo Books

Odoo Best Practices online book is dedicated to functional consultants or entrepreneur who wants to implement or use odoo online all-in-one business application out-of-the-box. This is an online book written based on Odoo Community and Enterprise Edition. This book covers the best implementation approach for most used applications such as Sales, Purchase, Inventory, Financial Accounting, and Manufacturing.

After writing Odoo 10 Implementation Cookbook, I realized that it is too difficult to have the latest and up-to-date printed book of each version for the fast-evolving business application. Odoo releases its stable version every 12 to 15 months. This book aims to guide you through a step-by-step configuration for business problems.
