    No Good

    Very disappointed with this book. I have bought several other Bible series books and was very happy with them. I have had this book for a while now and everytime I run into a problem I grab the book and it gives me no help. The index is very poor ... you can't even look up a simple function like urlencode cause it isn't there! This is probably fine for a beginner but that is it cause once you get going with PHP there is no way you can use this book as a reference!!!

    Long-winded, beginning PHP book

    Easier explanation on PHP than a few other books I've read, good introduction on what exactly PHP is and how it works. On the flip side, it is too wordy and preechy. What they could say in a few lines (as most other books do) they drag out. It could also do with better examples. It's a good resource for beginning PHP if you can get past its faults. (Note: some understanding of HTML and general terms is required).
