Top Customer Reviews
The book assumes you are already somewhat familiar with PHP internals and basically "throws you in the deep end" right away. It is also aimed at C programmers (the language PHP is written in); if you only know PHP, you will probably have a hard time creating an extension using only the information contained in this book.
The book is also doesn't contain a lot of newer information, since it was written in 2006. Getting extensions to work with PHP 5.3 sometimes requires changes to old code that is not mentioned in this book.
It is a very good source of information to understand PHP's internals, even if you don't plan to build PHP extensions.
A book that every good PHP developper interested in code performances should read.
