great book on php,
This review is from: PHP Cookbook: 1 (Paperback)
This book is definitely not for a beginner wanting to learn php. But as a reference book, it is terrific. There are lots and lots of very useful examples.The material is very well orgainized - you can find what u need very quickly. For each topic, a commonly encountered problem is presented, and then an explanation of how to solve it, along with sample code is given. I used another book to learn php. While that was great for learning, I found it frustrating finding solutions in it to problems i faced when i started work on my php project. This book helped me immensely because it gave me the answers I needed quickly. The numerous examples were a godsend. I highly recommended it as a handy reference.
