4.0 out of 5 stars First Review of PHP5 and MySQL Bible
This book is an excellent resource for PHP and MySQL with a very good chapter on Object Oriented Programming, project examples, and actual case studies. I would highly recommend this book for all developers who desire to sharpen their skills and start programming with the advanced techniques of the new version of PHP.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice book but not recommended
If you already are a programmer from another language this book is just fine but if you are a beginner stay away from it. You're better off reading something from the WROX publishers to learn PHP and the MySQL Tutorial from MySQL AB.
This book covers a lot of PHP but the examples are awful and the layout of them are even worse.
Altough they recommend some...

If you already are a programmer from another language this book is just fine but if you are a beginner stay away from it. You're better off reading something from the WROX publishers to learn PHP and the MySQL Tutorial from MySQL AB.
This book covers a lot of PHP but the examples are awful and the layout of them are even worse.
Altough they recommend some coding standard, they unfortunately do not implent it in the examples themselves.
The chapters jump back and forth and if you like to know something about object orientated programming in PHP then stay away from this book. It will not teach you, but it is merely a explanation for C or Java programmers.
This is not really a PHP5 book, but a brushed up PHP4 book. The MySQL version examples are still 4.0, which suprices me as 4.1 is released at the same time as PHP5 and has some important changes regarding PHP. The authors of this book did only explain one chapter MySQL with MyISAM tables and there is nothing to be found for the InnoDB version.
