Well written, but too simple for advanced programmers.,
This review is from: PHP and MySQL Web Development (Paperback)
I was somewhat disappointed with this book. Although it cannot be denied that the text is well-written throughout, I was frustrated by the lack of code examples. The book is also squared firmly at the beginner PHP programmer who wants to move to a move intermediate level. I would disagree with the publishers who suggest the book is suitable for intermediate to advanced programmers- people at this level would best avoid this book as there is it contains nothing you couldn't learn from searching around the net for 5 minutes.
In summary then; a good book if you are starting PHP and want to move into making solid web applications. However, steer clear if you consider yourself at least an intermediate PHP programmer- there will be nothing in this book that you won't already know.
