3.0 out of 5 stars a cursory overview Oct. 23 2006
By Discoveror - Published on
The Chapter 2 Summary says: "the examples given cover only a small part of the functionality available within these very fully featured packages." That about sums this up ...

The cursory overviews may inspire an approach, but this books barely begins to address its subject matter. Example code is not, yet, up on the website. This has the look of being slapped together by four author specialists (a la Wrox gang-writing?) albeit with less depth ... hardly the "PHP Programming with PEAR" reference for which so many of us were waiting ...

5.0 out of 5 stars When you just don't have time to search the internet April 27 2011

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
You can find everything in this book on the internet, but it will take you forever, not to mention that it is no in any order.
1.0 out of 5 stars Poorly Written June 18 2012
By T. Cruz - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book has a lot of knowledge, but the content is lacking in showing methods and explanations of methods.
Copy Paste from the Book is not possible.
The examples do not explain what the various methods take as arguments or why.
The book does not guide a user through a successful and complete installation of all PEAR Modules that should be used in the book.
The book is written in a way where the "Whys" of what is being done are explained at all.

Wish I could have my money back.

I could make this rant much longer.
