5.0 out of 5 stars Nuts and bolts of PHP...
I loved this book for the fact that it really does focus just on PHP. Other books that I have read quickly add in JavaScript or MySQL, and - depending on your background - that can get confusing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Well explained to novices
PHP is a computer programming scripting language that is embedded within the HTML which makes up web pages. Robin's book is quite like a cook book in it's style and is a gentle guide into PHP.

3.0 out of 5 stars Well explained to novices, 14 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
PHP is a computer programming scripting language that is embedded within the HTML which makes up web pages. Robin's book is quite like a cook book in it's style and is a gentle guide into PHP. It is very easy to follow as Robin is a technical author, not a novelist. He does lecture a bit but this book does the job just like a manual although it does not sparkle and is not highly entertaining. It does not have the passion that is always found in a good novel.

This crash course develops well and the reading pleasure you get is from gaining knowledge, not from escaping into another world. You learn how forms on webpages work and how user input is processed. You discover how your internet browser works behind the scenes, how cookies work and what those extra bits of code are in your browser address bar. This book nicely progresses to the end when you deal with the differences between get and post Ajax requests.

Robin Nixon's PHP Crash Course is a 2088 KB eBook and was written in 2012. PHP is well explained to novices and it is great to understand it's magic. This book is okay and I give it a score of 3 stars.
