Format: Paperback
For those of you who like to mash things, especially things - you must read this book! Not only is Brett O'Connor a expert, he can also string together a bunch of words like "API" "PHP/MySQL" and "aggregate" without sounding too geeky or scaring off those of us who are not smart so good on teh internets. w00t!
