    Another Great Tech Book from Head First

    Using a sense of humor, incredible depth of knowledge, and a teaching method that virtually ensures absorption of the material no matter what your learning style, Head First PHP & MySQL takes the reader from initial steps to proficiency in this powerful and widely used technology.

    Build a mail-order website for Elvis Impersonators using PHP Forms. Build a secure application for Rock Wars gamers to track (and verify) highest scores. Submit and review resumes for Risky Jobs. These tongue-in-cheek sample applications provide a playground to learn all of the PHP/MySQL basics in a fun and engaging way.

    Code downloads, and very useful appendices complete the package. I was able to build solid production applications almost immediately as I stepped through the book.

    Easily Five Stars, Two Thumbs Up, and a page full of Smiley Faces for this book.

    Head First: Php & Mysql, What a great book!

    I have been developing websites since the beginning of what we all know as the internet. Up until recently I have paid to have all of the coding done. Nothing that I ever read about Php or Mysql could never stick with me. I would read things and dabble a little bit. But actually retaining any of it was impossible for me.This was up until I purchased this great Head First: Php & Mysql book. Not only is it easy reading, I have retained every bit of it. I am nowhere finished with the book and I think its safe to say that this book will stay on my shelf forever. If anyone asks me how I learned PHP, I will simply point at the book.1 week after I started reading the book I wrote my first script, on my own, without copy and pasting someone else code. It was a simple script, just writing a form and a php script to parse it and store in MySql. Regardless, 1 week and I wrote that. Its with me forever now.If you are thinking of learning php, or if you have struggled to remember things like functions and syntax then you MUST buy this book. I am just your average Joe and this is hands down the best book I have put on my shelf in a very long time. Truth is, that its not even on my shelf and I think I will keep it along side me until I can have it all in head.You will jump in to writing some simple php and you advance pretty fast, but the best part is the way that they present the information. I honestly think my 12 year old son could work his way through this. The book even gives you problems to figure out in writing, or homework if you will. GREAT Job to the authors of this book. If there is more Head First books I will buy them next time
