The reason for the book's length is that the author is attempting to cover a lot of ground. There are comprehensive and separate descriptions of PHP and MySQL. Keep in mind that each has multiple books devoted to it. The PHP section has a good emphasis on object oriented coding. This can be vital if you have a large PHP code body, for using OO helps code scale to larger sizes. The MySQL section of the text is also nontrivial. Amongst other things, it describes how to design and create a database. Ideas that are largely independent of MySQL, though they can be, and are, implemented in it, in the text. Of course, the main attraction of the book is in combining PHP and MySQL. Here, the book goes into how to make a multitier architecture, from the client side to the database. Chapter 14 on writing the user interface is a little skimpy. But other chapters on the server side issues have more detail on their subjects. Which includes a chapter on XML. Quite aside from PHP or MySQL, knowing how to use XML can be important to you. The book even finds time to cover Web Services and how you might implement and interact with these, using PHP.
