First of all I should admit again, I am a total PHP newb. However, thanks to this book I feel I can start doing some really ... really, really, cool stuff with PHP and MySQL. I use Joomla!, and I am happy with ... but now when it comes to making changes I am going to have a much firmer grasp on what is going on. Thanks O'Reilly. I really love your books!!
