I tried to rush through this book - but that's no good. You really do need to take each section slowly and one step at a time. At times it can be tuff to understand the meaning links and affect of some of the script. That's not because the book is poorly written. In fact the opposite is true - it's the best vendor Neutral php book I studied. I have three and this is the only one that eventually got me to a place where I could create a registration site. If you take each chapter one step at a time you will soon get to grips with the writers style. A very useful manual which can last the test of time

I find the way David Powers writes, is very engaging. This is one of the skills necessary to be engaged in web design and there are very practical ideas contained within the book.

Very well written, building on the first edition to include classes. The style is encouraging and friendly, never condescending.
The downloadable code files are useful and easily adapted to suit.
The index is not quite so good as in the first edition.

if you are trying to learn php and mysql powers knows how to get it across in text. brilliant reference book if a tad dated now that php has moved on and mysqli is no longer used but even so it is still the best book around for self learning

This book works through a series of examples with a view to providing a learning experience. Without the examples it has extremely limited value.

Guess what? The link to the worked examples has been offline every time I've tried it and going to the actual URL (rather than a specific page) leads to an unconfigured Open CMS page.

Waste of money.
