Well worth it.,
This review is from: PHP 5 CMS Framework Development: Expert insight and practical guidance to creating an efficient, flexible, and robust framework for a PHP 5-based content management system (Paperback)
Will this book expand your knowledge of advanced PHP programming? Absolutely.
A rich set of object-oriented features, combined with successful implementation makes scalable PHP5 programming highly effective, if not downright enjoyable! Software veteran Martin Brampton (former lead architect for the widely-acclaimed Mambo CMS, and significant contributor to Joomla) returns the open source favor, presenting his next-generation PHP concepts and methods in detail.
With a nimble and unassuming style, the author hosts an impressive exploration of state-of-the-art PHP design, while methodically deconstructing the CMS problem domain. Armed with the street-smarts of a hands-on, seasoned developer, Brampton explores best-practices and strategy with the precision of a Cambridge-schooled mathematician and a gift for the written word.
This trenchant and evolutionary CMS adventure represents a triumph of open craftsmanship; in addition to his own codebase, the architect has cherry-picked gems of the open source universe and folded their strengths into a slick and lightweight composition. While the subject is his own CMS project Aliro, the ambitious PHP developer will have no trouble re-using the multitude of well-considered ideas, classes, and methods within this work.

This review smells 'someone paid for it'.
What normal review uses words like 'Triumph'? This famous 'one-word-review' is usually used by movie critics, then used in movie trailers.
Normal review would never have words "trenchant and evolutionary" or "widely-acclaimed"
These sorts of paid reviews are never helpful and do more harm than good.
