I think this book is a good buy. I sure did open my eyes to a world of development I never thought possible without Dreamweaver. PHP is so powerful and this book let's you harness those great features of PHP.

While the content of the book is potentially good, anybody who needs a little handholding might get lost quickly as the author does not give much background information and skips many steps that are second nature to proficient developers. This is where the beginner puts this book away and the intermediate user struggles with finding more information on how-to-do a particular thing. (This starts with the setup of a Apache / MySQL / PHP server and ripples thru the whole book.)
In addition to the content, the book is slightly disorganized and not the easiest reading material. Not so much because of difficulty but because of writing style.

This book is riddled with errors, from nonsense layouts to coding mistakes. The interface (a hotel booking system) is very rudimentary and does not work as advertised.
The book does introduce readers to Dreamweaver's server behavior interface and does a good job walking readers through a local install of Apache, MySQL, PHP, and a few other tools.
A good idea, poorly executed.

The book seamed perfect to help me learn PHP and MYSQL using DWMX. Too bad it's so full of errors and mistakes. Remeber trying to learn how to drive a car. Now imagine trying to learn on a car that stalls and breaks down constantly. That's what the book feels like to me. I find myself trouble shooting all the code and that is pretty hard when you are just learning.
There is no CD but you can download SOME of the code. Having a final (working) version of the site would have made all the errors stand out a bit more.
I am learnig from it, it's just a bit frustrating and slow.

This book is one of those rare books on programming PHP with Dreamweaver. The explanations and instructions are very good but you have to be carefull about the mistakes in conflicting database names and some coding. We spent almost 2 hours in finding where we are doing wrong. We finally found out that it was because the coding was misspelled...
But we recommend this book to those who want to build php, mysql pages with DreamWeaver MX.

I haven't finished the book yet -- and probably won't. It is absolutely the most dreadful development/learning book I've come across yet (in almost 30 years of playing with computers). Some instructions are missing steps. Others are plain flat-out wrong. Finally, the authors make way too many assumptions about users' abilities and machine-specific setups. Do yourself a favor and find another book.

I'm very disappointed with this book. For someone just starting their journey in PHP, it simply has too many mistakes in the code presented on the pages of the book. Learning to program is hard enough without the help of wrongly printed code in a book that is suppose to be teaching the subject. After 3 day of frustation I go to the site only to find out they no longer support the book. They do however have an Errata page where you will find many corrections to the code which after some more time got the basic booking system to work. Then After a day on chaper 9 with a list of the corrections from the website in hand, I could not get the admin section to work so I download the code pages for chapter 9 from the site, and find they doesn't work either. I like the explanations on the subject and the layout of the book but damn I think a programming book should spend whatever time it takes to get the code right. I make my share of typos not to mention spelling but I don't write or sell books. This book is about teaching code and it seem to me someone could have spent more time making sure at least the code was correct. It's obvious these guys know what they are doing I just wish it had been better edited.
