Advanced PHP book not for the faint of heart! Oct. 8 2013
By Russell Cortez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Be warned this book is not for the faint of heart, but if you have the stomach for it this book will take your PHP skills to the next level! The author doesn't waste any time going over programming 101 concepts like other PHP books do, he assumes you already know all that stuff. In the first pages he immediately dives into multidimensional arrays and recursion, advanced topics that may be skimmed over in other PHP books. All the while he strategically uses advanced techniques in his code samples that will lead the inquisitive reader to consult the PHP manual and learn more. I learned about the heredoc, filter extension, MVC, storing sessions in the database, UML, OOP, and more all in the first six chapters! OOP was explained especially well here, much better than I've seen explained in any other book! If the rest of the book is as good as what I've read so far, this is not only the best PHP book ever written, but one of the best programming books ever written as well. Will definitely keep an eye out for more books written by this author!

Only flaw is it doesn't go on forever! Aug. 25 2013
By Starry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was sad when I finished this book. This is probably the most readable programming book I ever read. Unlike a lot of technical authors, who don't have a clue how to explain things, Larry Ullman is very good at it. I like how he doesn't throw tons of unfamiliar terms at you. He explains each one. That was nice because when I read a book, I don't feel like Googling dozens of words. That interrupts my concentration.

This author cares so much about people understanding his books that he will PERSONALLY answer questions! If you go on his forum and post 50% of the time he's the one who answers (the rest of the time some other knowledgeable person beats him to it). What more could you want?

Great for anyone wanting to learn OOP Nov. 1 2013
By Suliak - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have read maybe 8 PHP books and perhaps 30 books on programming if I include other languages and this is one of the best books for my style of learning that I have read. I never read a book cover to cover, dong the exercises along the way. I rarely read the book in the correct chapter order also. I often use the book to try and quickly reference an answer to a question. The book is great for all that.

But more than the layout, the author has done a great job of selecting examples and explaining them. The pace is gentle without being slow or insulting and the explanations cover the "why", which is important for me personally.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone with at least a rudimentary understanding of PHP that is looking to learn any of the things listed in the contents.

The best book that takes you from the basic PHP skills to the real projects mastering April 7 2013
By East Coaster - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
First: about the reader expectations:
This book should NOT be considered as the introductory course.
This book should NOT be considered as the in-depth coverage of all details for the topics.

This book is THE missing link between the introductory books, your real projects coding, and the more advanced books or documentations on the specific topics. The books covers various aspects of PHP technology and design patterns, each chapter contains enough data for the reader to start using the acquired skills for his-her projects. At the same time, the author provides with the references for further readings or to the related recourse sites.

If some one is expanding from Java world to PHP, it's the book that must be studied first before making any pilot coding: just get and PHP intro books, don't worry about cluttered coding cocktail that "straight forward" PHP script look like, get the Larry's book, go through all exercises and you'll be ready to go.
I am (of course, with the collection of PHP docs and code snippets links and few other PHP books that cover specific topics, which where not much use to me till I completed THIS book).

Great book by a great guy! Jan. 9 2013
By Stuart Connall - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I recently attended the Boston PHP Meetup and Larry Ullman was the key speaker. Knowledgeable guy and really interesting speaker with a great sense of humor. This is the 2nd book of his that I have purchased and you can't buy a better book for learning hands on!
