Great idea, but could have been bettter.,
This review is from: PHP Phrasebook: Essential Code and Commands (Developer's Library) (Paperback)
This is a superb idea, a portable little pocket sized reference guide for php programmers. Its divided up very intelligently, and if you have a problem in php you need to solve, theres a good chance you could find a suitable code pretty quickly here. This obviously isn't for beginners, but I felt the usefulness of the book was a little hampered by the fact that the german author, Christian Wenz, seems to have a rather idosyncratic command of english. Consequently, as someone who has been using php for a couple of years, some of the explanations here were very difficult to understand. I'm giving it 4 stars however, because for the professional php programmer, its probably very useful and the best of its type around.
