I agree! PHP 6 is in the pipline and so many other publishers are able to crank out the work. I'm afraid this work may be obsolete before it hits the shelves. I'm hoping this edition covers OOP and PDO better than anyone else because I believe these areas are core to corporate development. Most all PHP books cover the basics. Very few cover the subject as a corporate developer would prefer. I've been waiting on this one for months because I don't want to read a tomb of a book only to have the new one come out before I finish.
