Book Description

April 11 2005
The landscape of e-commerce is changing and Amazon is one of the companies on the forefront of those changes. This book teaches how to use the PHP programming language to develop web applications that take advantage of Amazon's E-Commerce Service 4.0. The book also discusses the major aspects of the Amazon.com site architecture and Amazon's Seller Services -- the Amazon Inventory Management System (AIMS) and the Merchants@ API. Web Services development using XSLT, SOAP, and REST is described as well as how to harness the international Amazon sites (amazon.de, amazon.co.jp, etc..) using E-Commerce Service. The book is targeted at intermediate PHP developers. That might include people making simple sidebar applications for web sites all the way up to more serious storefronts and even backend inventory systems. Basic understanding of XML and PHP is required.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best existing source for this information July 1 2005
By Sean M. Gallagher - Published on Amazon.com
This book is the only resource I've been able to find that pulls together the current information on Amazon's E-Commerce Service platform *and* applies it to PHP development. I wouldn't say I have the deepest PHP skills in the world, but I found that I could easily apply the exercises in this book to my own projects.

It helps that the book is well-written and engaging (something I've come to NOT expect from the tech-book mills that usually churn out books like this).

5.0 out of 5 stars Interested in Integration with Amazon ? This is the best place to start. Aug. 20 2005
By Robert Hendley - Published on Amazon.com
I just got done reading and hacking the book and have found many new ways in which to interface with amazon.com web services. The book delivers on its title and does so to a broad audience in a clean style. You will need to understand XML technologies at a beginner's level and be proficient in PHP in order to fully utilize this book. Novices can also learn from this book.

Thanks Jason Levitt

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent resource for web developers March 28 2006
By Adrian Casillas - Published on Amazon.com
Some of the reviewers seem to be wishing for a "..for Dummies" book. This aint it. What this book is is an excellent overview of the entire Amazon e-commerce platform from the perspective of a web developer. It is written by a web developer for web developers, full stop. And as far as that statement is true, this is an excellent (and inexpensive 8-) resource.

That said, there is most certainly an opportunity for some author out there to write a down and dirty guide to Amazon e-commerce for folks with mom'n'pop websites. Indeed, how about a down'n'dirty guide to amazon/ebay/google/yahoo services..as well as RSS..you name it? A gaping hole in the market IMHO.

Well, I digress: the current book is excellent and heartily recommended to developers and tech-savvy website managers who don't mind skipping some gory details to read a very good overview of what Amazon has on offer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent introduction to Amazon web services Sept. 16 2005
By fgw - Published on Amazon.com
I am relative novice when it comes to using web services but I have some experience with PHP. I found the examples in this book very useful for illustrating how to get up and running quickly while giving a good foundation for more experimentation. The Author does not give away all of the answers to building a complete Amazon app which I found to be be nice because it made me think of other more imaginative ways to use them.

5.0 out of 5 stars delighted ... with organization & stunning depth Aug. 16 2005
By Discoveror - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you're serious about learning the Amazon commercial API's, I can't imagine a better organized source. From API evolution and internationalization to web services alternatives to in-depth chapters on itemSearch, pagination, sorting, product details & variations. How do you find information on customer vs. sellers? How do you implement remote carts?

Succinctly written and chock full; I really can't fathom what more the other reviewers were expecting. I'm just tickled silly that all this information is gathered and presented so easily ... and for such a reasonable price.

Thank you - for the tremendous effort it must certainly have taken - to put this together. I am very grateful.
