From the Back Cover
PHP is one of the most popular server-side scripting languages available. Its powerful and easy to learn. Combined with MySQL, a fast, cross-platform, and free open source database, it makes a very effective tool for developing database-driven web sites.

Throughout the book we use a real-world example application, a hotel room booking system, to demonstrate just how easily you can quickly build dynamic PHP sites with Dreamweaver MX.
This book will show you:
- Overview of Dreamweaver MX, PHP, and MySQL
- Designing the site
- Using server behaviors to interact with the database
- Hand coding and debugging in Dreamweaver

Top Customer Reviews
In addition to the content, the book is slightly disorganized and not the easiest reading material. Not so much because of difficulty but because of writing style.
There is no CD but you can download SOME of the code. Having a final (working) version of the site would have made all the errors stand out a bit more.
I am learnig from it, it's just a bit frustrating and slow.
The biggest strengths of this book are that it gets you initiated into the exclusive and close-knit PHP club pretty quickly. And even better, it tells you how to do this using the provided Dreamweaver MX tools.
After mastering this book and devouring sections of it, you will be thirsting for more knowledge and scouring php bulletin boards for answers to your questions.
This book is a must-have for people looking to dive head first into the world of open source web developement and server-side scripting without drowning.
You will however find that this book is really only good for beginners and that you will very quickly find the plateau, leaving you grasping for more. But that is why I am buying the advanced php book: because I am ready for it now.
