There's something here to learn, but it is more of a hodge-podge of intermediate PHP topics rather than a structured introduction to OOP. This book should have been entitled "Intermediate PHP Topics".

HASH(0x9b5c1ed0) out of 5 stars Great for anyone wanting to learn OOP Nov. 1 2013
By CH3CH2OH - Published on
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.

HASH(0x9ca9a138) out of 5 stars Only flaw is it doesn't go on forever! Aug. 25 2013
By Starry - Published on
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?

HASH(0x9ca9a0fc) out of 5 stars Highly recommended! Almost doubled my salary with the knowledge in this book. July 10 2014

Highly recommended! This book is a great syllabus to understanding Objected Oriented Programming in PHP. It is helping me with my job.

My background is in Graphic Design. I knew HTML, CSS, some JavaScript (with jQuery) and also read Ullman's PHP and MySQL (4th Edition) book before tackling this. I was able to get from a content management job to back end development using this book. I have almost doubled my salary!

HASH(0x9ca9a3f0) out of 5 stars The best book that takes you from the basic PHP skills to the real projects mastering April 7 2013
By East Coaster - Published on
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).

HASH(0x9ca9a450) out of 5 stars This is an intro book at best. Unless you are truly a complete newbie to php. There is no advanced about it. Look else where! April 17 2015
By Robert B Rogers - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you are even just somewhat versed in php this book is not for you. This is not an advanced book by any means. He does not devel deep in any of the important very important concepts of modern php development by many means. He briefly mentions namespaces -- which is huge. His discussion of auto loading and SPL is brief to the point of usefulness . His discussions of design patterns are so simplistic that you cannot see how to implement them or taken advantage of them in any project. And worst his example project layouts leave your code at the level of web root. Where they should not be! He does not even discuss composer. Vital to including libraries in a safe organized manner. In short I was deeply disappointed. When I saw he was mixing business logic with views I just about threw up. There's no separation of concers. No models no views no controllers. Plus heavy use of globals.
