Great list of practical examples,
This review is from: PHP Hacks: Tips & Tools For Creating Dynamic Websites (Paperback)The book provides an excellent list of UI tips and tricks with examples explained. Some back-end examples are available as well but a bit less interesting because they assume you are starting from scratch, which is rarely the case for me.
It also contains a good list of pointers to techniques that might help you improve your creations.
I was pleased by the fact that it treats of both PHP4 and PHP5, but a bit disappointed by it's lack of focus on W3C standards.
It is clearly structured, well sorted into chapters and it provides a valuable source of code to keep at hand in the long run. A bit like a cookbook but still pleasant to read through as a "sequential" book.
