I didn't buy this book from Amazon, but for what it's worth: This is by far the Best book to come across PHP, MySQL, JScript and Dynamic HTML. It takes reader from a simple concept to complicated without wasting any time. Very good examples and by tweaking them a little, they provide far better approach for self learning. I am now on chapter 6. Object Oriented Programming I never understood, but looks like i will get through the concepts soon.

It guides through some pretty good IDE tools to develop the PHP code. Though I have been using the NotePad++ for coding, but looks like other tools taught in this book are pretty good and well worth to explore them.

Overall, the book is worth every penny and more. What I call is: A Job done well.

Don't forget to go through You Tube videos for learning bits and pieces that might be missing in the book.

A great book if you are looking to just get started learning web development. Nothing really new here for anyone who has worked in the field for more than a year though.

Could have been a great guide but without small simple exercises throughout there is just no point. Sure, the book provides "examples" which are just sample pieces of code and syntax - essentially they should not be called out as being separate from the book - they are just part of the text. This is not nearly as effective as providing some simple exercises at the end off or throughout the chapters. As a beginner I felt let down as the previous edition had such good reviews.

The book has a set of questions at the end of the chapters but they just ask about theory. They are not exercises.

Without ongoing exercises this book essentially expects you to read and just somehow remember everything. Exercises would have been particularly useful in the early chapters where the steepest learning curve exists.
