    Difficult to read

    I have to say honestly that I did not read the whole book. What I tried to read was very unsatisfying. the book starts of with the installation of Apache and PHP. I find that beyond this book. Flash and PHP is not exactly the starting point to get familiar with PHP. It seemed like filling the book.<BR/>I read some pages in the book. I found the writer jumping subjects without proper introduction. He shows things that are not clear, making it very hard to follow. <BR/>I was not satisfied with the reading comfort and have brought it back and got another book. I am happy I did.

    Keep Looking For That Definitive Guide

    Of the many programming books that I've read, I would have to say that this book is one of the most poorly written books out there. If you are looking for a good desk reference for Flash, PHP or mySQL keep looking. This is not it.
