5.0 out of 5 stars One Heck Of A Book March 16 2006
Format:Paperback
PHP and MySQL For Dynamic Web Sites is one heck of a book for both beginner and advanced users of PHP and MySQL. If you are an advanced user you will probably find more than just a couple things that can speed up your coding techniques and you may even just learn something new that you didn't know before. If you are a beginner user then the book will take you step by step from the beginning of learning how to use PHP and MySQL.
The book starts out with the fundamentals of PHP with basic syntax. From there you end up going through basically everything there is to know about PHP untill you get to the introduction to MySQL which will start you out just like the PHP chapters with basic syntax. Once you have gone through both sections of PHP and MySQL introductions you will then start to learn how to put both together to start making websites. From there you will gain more and more knowledge, hints, tips, and shortcuts to optimize and create professional PHP and MySQL code for a PHP/MySQL driven website.
There are many strong points in this book, but I must point out the strongest out of all of them which is the fact that at the end of this book it provides in depth detailed tutorials or examples of some very helpfull things to get you started with your own website. There are only three, but if there were anymore the book would weigh 20lbs. The three tutorials/examples include: Content Management, User Registration, and E-Commerce.
As I read through this book there were not many weak points to the book besides the fact that I threw my life away and read it because it was filled with so much interesting content.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not "handy" March 4 2006
By corey
Format:Paperback
I picked up this book when I was setting up my first dynamic website. The author is obviously quite well versed in the subject matter and does a fair enough job of laying out the basics. Unfortunately, I was hoping to come away with a book that I could later use as a reference for specifics of command syntax, explanations of functional applications / limitations, etc. and the book just doesn't lend itself to this. The author also doesn't go into any detail on object-oriented programming or its structure in php, which is a must if you're using one of the popular open-source packages like Drupal. ([...]

5.0 out of 5 stars No accident this book is a bestseller! Sept. 2 2006
Format:Paperback
You will certainly make an excellent choice buying this book. Teaching process should involve the ability to transfer knowledge from a teacher to a student and that is exactly what Larry is able to do. This is the second edition of the book that is really fully updated and deserves to be a bestseller. It covers PHP and MySQL in a way that a reader gets all the knowledge not only to program in PHP/MySQL but also to install the software and run it on different operating systems in conjunction with different web servers. Larry shares his knowledge and resources with everyone and supports his work with book's companion web site. He also writes on advanced topics in PHP and I highly recommend Larry's numerous books to everyone.

I've got a computer engineering bachelor and a c++ background at the time i graduated with no market experience.
Since PHP was the rave at the time, i decided to get this book and learn a bit about it.
I got my first job after reading 3 chapters of this book, just to get the basics down.
Obviously, it was an entry level job at a real small company, but it's only fair to rate this book a solid 4 stars since it got me started in my career!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book the aspiring php coder! Nov. 28 2006
Format:Paperback
Larry Ullman starts off by teaching his readers the basics of php and mysql like any good teacher would. He then guides you through many different concepts of php and mysql in great detail and even shows you how to create 3 real life applications using what you have just learned. Unlike what other reviewers have said i find this book quite handy and a good reference to look back to when you need to know about certain elements of php or mysql. I would highly recommend this book of you are someone looking to learn php and mysql in a way that you will learn and retain the information!
