Nobody had taken time to review this yet? I'm surprised, this book is superb.
Giving a great introduction & tutorial on the better PEAR modules this book excels in its given task. PEAR (if your not aware) is the PHP equivalent of Perls CPAN and in its short life so far is building into an extemely high quality repository.
If your a PHP developer who is not currently using PEAR, but this book, if your a developer who is already using PEAR but was finding little documentation (like me)...buy this book!
You won't regret it, honest!

This is probably the best programming book I've read since I read Kernighan & Ritchie's "The C programming Language" over 20 years ago - they don't come along this good very often, maybe I don't read enough programming books! Nevertheless this is an excellent example for those who want to write active web pages and maybe use a data base back end, or indeed to write their own book!
