Learn The Basics Of PHP & MySQL Programming Without a Brain Overload!

..."I Hate PHP" is for webmasters and designers who have always wondered what PHP could do for them; someone who wants to "do" some PHP and not outsource it. It is best to be familiar with HTML and writing / deciphering HTML code. You don't need to be a top-notch "I do it all in Notepad" kinda person - just being able to open up a text editor and understand the code is enough. Copy / Paste knowledge is helpful too.

Unlike other PHP books on the market, we are not going to attempt to cover every single facet of the Wide World Of PHP Language. No, we want to grasp the basics of the language, get familiar with it, and get some real-life examples...not have the whole thing shoved down our throat!

You'll find that throughout this book, my odd sense of humor may shine through a little bit. You might not find that web programming is the most exciting thing on the planet. Well, I don't either, so I tried to make it interesting and easy to read.

This would be a good starter book for php and sql. It is short, easily read, and presents the material in a digestible manner. I am currenlt using examples to try to do simple database stuff, and some other books have been harder to get through.

I was a bit overwhelmed about all of the resources out there and this proved to be a good place to start. It simply lays out the very basics with a few real-world uses of php/mysql. The author has a comic approach, which makes learning PHP fun! I have to say that I'm ready to dive into more complex resources thanks to the easy read of this book. Kudos to a cheap, entry-level book for a beginner, like myself.

This book is a quick read and a good entry to php. I feel ready to tackle more complex books on php. The last page however brought the book to a screeching halt without ever mentioning mySQL. I almost felf as though I bought only the first two parts of the book. What happened to the last third?????? I would have given this book a 4+ but the lack of the ending forced me to rate it as a 3.

The book is not formatted correctly and ends with while loops.
