This review is from: PHP for the World Wide Web: Visual Quickstart Guide (Visual QuickStart Guides) (Paperback)
I must admit that I had written basic php applications before buying this book. However I have no idea how I managed to write them with the little knowledge I possessed! I've read a great deal of php books in the past where I learned very little from a vast amount of reading. This was the complete opposite, and I couldn't believe how it turned my programming around. From start to finish, it teaches the essentials in an easy to read and easy to understand format without leaving out things you really do need to know.
For those looking for something advanced, this obviously isn't going to be for you, but if you're just starting out, or you've just dabbled in php before, this is absolutely the number one book out there.
