Review

PHP Cookbook is ceartainly the most useful PHP book I own.
-- Steven Osborn, Tulsa PHP Users Group, May 2007

When it comes to creating dynamic web sites, the open source
PHP language is red-hot property: used on more than 20 million web sites
today, PHP is now more popular than Microsoft's ASP.NET technology. With
our Cookbook's unique format, you can learn how to build dynamic web
applications that work on any web browser. This revised new edition makes
it easy to find specific solutions for programming challenges.

Format: Paperback
Well written, clear, precise - not full of useless waffle like some guides.
Provides solutions to common problems and tasks, which could be very useful for beginners and users with some experience of PHP. However, this is *not* a "how to learn PHP" book, rather, like the title states, it is a cookbook of solutions with examples.

I can recommend PHP Cookbook, but not as your only PHP text, especially for beginners. I suggest looking at 'PHP and MYSQL Web Development', by Welling and Thomson, published by Addison Wesley - covers the basics and most everything else too an excellent book for learning PHP and MYSQL for web development.

I haven't read the whole book yet and all I can say is so far so good. The book is well writen and exmples are well explained for those who have some experience in PHP(not as good for beginners). It solves all the common problems and frequently asked questions on various topics. The best thing about this book is that it has no useless content and it gets straight to the point. Some expamples made me rewrite some of the code on my pages. It's really handy book and I highly recommend it.

This really is an excellent book and would recommend it to everyone who works with PHP.

I have worked in I.T. for 20 years and have spent squillions on various I.T. books over the years. Most are not as good as you would hope. This one is better than I hoped and I have high expectations.

The general tone and approach of the book is first class. You are treated like a bright adult. I like that. Naturally, there are bits in the book that may not be of immediate interest to you. However, because the problem solving is so intelligent and interesting, you may well find yourself delving into them anyway. I did.

I recommend it.

I've owned quite a few programming books in my time, but this is far and away the most thumbed I've ever had. As other reviewers have noted, it's not the book for you if you want to learn PHP from scratch (but then you're probably better off following one of the many excellent online tutorials instead). But it's well organised and packed with great, well written and succint examples. I've used it to solve specific problems, and also just to dip into and get ideas.

I bought this book for several key recipes that were shown in the table of contents. Once having it on my Kindle, I was frustrated to find only very brief descriptions with links to the PHP docs for more information. Personally, when I buy a book it's to expand on the online docs - not to summarise them!

I feel like I just wasted £16+ on an index of the online PHP docs...
