This is an excellent book on zoning practices in the United States. A must-read for anyone interested in transportation and land use policy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring, long, not much Spanish on it., February 22, 2007
This series is awful. The soap opera is extremely slow-paced, boring, and cheasy. There are very, VERY long musical interludes and a LOT of talking in English. In one of the first episodes, they spent about 3 minutes talking in English about looking at the expressions on the characters faces to figure out what's going on. Uh, isn't the idea of learning Spanish supposed to be that you can understand SPANISH, not basic human interaction? This is just one example of the overuse of English. It's boring, it's long, and there isn't much Spanish on it. A huge waste of money. It teaches you little and takes so long to do it. And what little it does say is very difficult to understand - you just get the broad strokes from the exaggerated acting, but you're not really LEARNING anything. If you're a teacher, try just finding free Spanish video clips online ([...]) and take a few expressions and explain them. If you're an independent learner, dear god, don't put yourself through this childish video.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good introduction to PHP, November 4, 2001
PHP for the WWW is a great book if you are just starting out with PHP and have a little programming experience. It has a lot of great examples, most of them easy to follow. The thing I like most is that fact that it explains every little deatil of code they write.
The chapter on databases (MySQL, to be exact) is my favorite, and probably the most useful. The book is a little short (not even 250 pages). I find that the worst part of the book is the explanation on how to configure PHP to work with Apache on Windows and Linux, and it doesn't delve into configuring MySQL Server at all. (***)P>Overall, a good book although what it is lacking in is fairly cruicial.
