3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad but definately not a reference book, 2 Aug 2007
This review is from: Beginning Ajax with PHP (Paperback)
This is a good book or learning Ajax but should definetely not be used as a reference book.

The style basically takes you through leading by example so they have a chapter for a calendar application, a chapter for uploading files etc but the book does not really go into much detail on what the code is doing meaning that unless you're already savvy with PHP and Javascript, it would be quite difficult to learn from this book.

If you have some knowledge of PHP and Javascript, then this book is not a bad buy and isn't very expensive and could turn out to be useful and a great learning tool.

If you're not that familiar with PHP and/or Javascript, I'd suggest something else first and then maybe revisit this book later on.

All in all, not a bad book but I believe the 'example' approach will only work for half the readers, not all.
