Who says a PHP book can't be comprehensive and easy at the same time? Spring into PHP 5 does both, swimmingly. How? To begin with, it's organized into easy, bite-sized chunks. There are practical, ready-to-use examples everywhere. Then, there's your author, Steve Holzner, arguably the world's most experienced writer on programming. If practice makes perfect, he's gotten darned close.
