Weak - But, should've been good 7 years ago,
This review is from: php|architect's Guide to PHP Design Patterns (Paperback)
The book starts fairly well but get lost after some pages. It focus a lot on tests - hey! TDD is great but it shouldn't have so much focus on a design patterns book.
Throughout the book you'll find lots of hackish PHP4 examples -which are useless now- and lots of badly written PHP5 examples (maybe because PHP5 were just beginning back then).
As I stated on the title, this book should've been good 7 years ago, but for now, it's outdated.
I really don't recommend this book if you understand at least 2 or 3 Design Patterns, or if you are serious about PHP OO programming.
