This book goes through all the main features of the PHP language in CLEAR detail. However some things are missed out such as includes etc. However this book is designed to get started quickly in the language.
All source code is given with good definations and tips around the side.
This is a MUST buy for all new PHP programmers and is a great reference, however you need something to supplement the book as well.

When i delved into PHP5 i got this book first as it was one of the first out there on the topic and quite a good price. The problem started when i tried to implement some of the examples set out inside it. Having to search the Internet for the reasons why they didn't work the answer became simple: in the rush to get the book out when PHP5 was released, the book assumed that many features of PHP4 would not be deprecated in PHP5 but as it turns out, many program snippets in the book won't work for PHP5 as they are deprecated. I feel more stupid for having bought this book at full price from a bookstore. I recommend ''PHP and MySQL Web Development by Luke Welling'', it might be expensive but by heck its far better and more indepth in using the power of PHP5 and was actually tested with PHP5.

If you are looking to take your first steps into PHP (mysql) then this is the correct book to purchase.
I little basic programming knowledge is handy so some may find themselves getting lost but everyone has to start somewhere.
The book on the whole is clear and easy to follow (beware that some of the examples do not work, this is down to little differences in some platforms) that said you can get a good basic grounding in PHP from this book.

The "in easy steps" series is really well thought-out and produced. I love the fact that they use colour, as it really livens up what could otherwise be a very drab subject.

This has a very easy to understand configuration of material and this is good for beginners only. If you are looking for more advanced coding help look elsewhere.
