    Great book to start with

    It's a great book to start learning PHP and MySQL with. It shows you all the basics, and gives you great working examples. Easy to read and understand.

    Typos, typos, typos.....

    Its a really good book to get you started, BUT, if you haven't coded with a similar language (such as asp), you might be in for a surprise! The code you download from the website, and the code in examples in the book have multiple typos. I spent a few hours just finding some spaces in the code downloaded from their site--spaces that caused the contacts database to not run. Sure would be nice if they tested the code first. Given that, I would not consider this the 'fast&easy' development.

    The book for beginners

    Im new to php, but not to programming. After comparing this book with many others I found myself always coming back to this book b/c it is straight foward and easy. This is a excellent buy, if you already have done cgi programming with perl. Also, if you are new to apache, mysql, and php installation, then this book offers a how-to installation section which covers both Linux and Windows. This book provides a lot of examples with clear explanation, so even if you don't have much programming experience don't worry this is the book for you.
