    very hands on

    Why has the combination of PHP and MySQL proved so popular in the marketplace? Darie and Bucica offer an explanation in the form of what is essentially a protracted and detailed build out of an e-commerce website. The ostensible reason is a shop selling T shirts. So we have a product catalog, which they subdivide into various departments, and in each of which, there is more detail. This drives the design of a database and the explanation of how to express this in MySQL. But all this in the back end. Users who visit the website could not care less about such details. Instead, they want to see pages of T shirts. So we learn how PHP can make dynamical pages, taking the data from the MySQL database. Finally, a shopping cart is implemented to let users buy items. The discussion is detailed enough to get functional code. And, of course, you can try your hand at modifying this for your needs. Not much theory in this book. Very hands on.

    This could easily be the programming book of 2004!!

    This book is one of the best books I have ever read about PHP and MySQL. The examples are great and the way the author shows you step by step how to create a complete E-commerce site is so simple than even someone like me with little knowledge of PHP was able to follow the book with not problems. In this book you will learn a lot of information than other books about PHP will not give you. The examples work and the final product is an actual site that with little modification you can customized for you or for one of your clients. I always wanted to know how to incorporate paypal as the payment method and this books shows you exactly what you need to know. There is so much good stuff in this book than I going to just tell you this, YOU MUST BUY THIS BOOK if you are serious about PHP and MySQL e-commerce programming. The book is well written, clear, and easy to follow. The final project is a real life example of an ecommerce site. I would recommend this book to any one trying to create an ecommerce site using PHP and MySQL. The only problem is that I can only give it a 5 out of 5 stars, but I believe it should be 5+ stars, a GREAT BOOK TO HAVE!!
