Not for beginners,
This review is from: Web Application Development with PHP (Book & CD Rom) (Paperback)This book is definitely not for beginners. I would recommend this book to someone who has enough money to spend on a book they will probably only read once (perhaps referring to it on the odd occasion for an obscure coding tip).
The book is very much a 'computer science/engineering' book and I imagine for a student reading CS it might be very useful since it covers a number of steps in the software life cycle quite well. However for someone looking for practical advanced PHP examples, this is definitely NOT the book to choose.
In summary, buy it ONLY if you don't expect a lot of examples and just want advice on how to approach programming a web application in PHP professionally.
