Not for the faint hearted, 9 Jan. 2005
I consider myself fairly competent in using various computer applications including Macromedia Flash, Dreamweaver and Microsoft Access. After reading the previous review, i decided to buy this book. Now whilst this book does cover all of the subjects it promises, it does not have the ability to bring this information across in an easy-to-understand manner.
I would suggest buying this book only if you have some idea of how to set up a server on your computer and have some idea of how to maintain it. The explanation given in "appendix A" does not tell you how to set up your computer as a server but rather how to install IIS/MySQL and PHP.
All in all, i think the sample code on the CD will come in handy to apply to projects and it cannot be argued that this book isnt comprehensive, i just wish Jeanine Meyer could explain the concepts more clearly..
