I am new to PHP and have learned other things before using for dummies books and found them very good, however i was extremely disappointed. I found this book boring and irritating. After about 6 hours of reading i was thinking 'when am i going to be set a task to practice what i have just learned' well that time never come. If you think you can learn a just by constant reading with no task to follow and nothing practice then this book would be ideal for you.
When my friend ( who has been using php for nearly 7 years) looked at this book he said he couldn't believe how poor the script was inside the book and told me to ignore some of it altogether.
I would never recommend anyone ever buying this book, and i am going to find another book that will teach me PHP preferably not written by Janet Valade
