This book has code examples that do not run; results that do not match the code. The programming tasks are trivial. No defensive programming is introduced to protect the web site from malicious user input. The student is encouraged to remove all security “to show how directory functions work” If you are new to PHP this book will lead you into very bad habits and you will produce a very vulnerable web site – get a better book. If you are more experienced at PHP the book does provide a little amusement spotting how many errors you can spot on each page, but will not widen your PHP horizons.
