4.0 out of 5 stars Get Your Playground Up and Running, July 30, 2008
This review is from: Professional Search Engine Optimization with PHP: A Developer's Guide to SEO (Paperback)
Given the relative advanced topic of this book, I was surprised to find a section on how to get your "playground" up and running. They devote 4 pages to getting XAMPP up and running. However, once you are beyond that, the good stuff starts to unfold.

Thanks for the kind review Kevin. You're not the first one to be surprised by that. When we started writing the book, we didn't know which brand of Wiley was going to publish it. We aimed to make the book somewhat-accessible to non-programmers, but it ultimately ended up under the Wrox brand. There are various points in the book where most programmers would probably get impatient, but overall we thought it was best to leave the hand-holding in for the occasional non-veteran programmer. SEO arguably overlaps with marketing. Ideally, a tech-savvy marketer would also be able to glean something from the book.

Nice to see you enjoyed it, though :)
