This is easily my favourite soundtrack ever, and quite possibly my favourite Mogwai album ever. I actually discovered the TV series after the release of this, and what a job Mogwai did, the music matches the mood of series perfectly.
I purchased this book when it was first released in the UK and have cover-to-cover'd it twice now. The pace of learning is gentle and assumes that the reader has no knowledge of PHP. The thing I liked most about it was the chapter on building a CMS. It builds on what you have learned earlier in the book and by the end of it you have a very functional application that will certainly have many practical uses. Great!!
