Actually worse than online documentation
on September 13, 2013
The book is an unorganized mess. Lots of fluffs. The information presented is incomplete. For example, in chapter 18, the author discussed some configuration directives without telling the filename where to set the configuration. Explanations from Google searches are clearer. The examples in this book demonstrate bad practices. If you are a newbie, this book will lead you to write bad codes.
Buy a different book. Larry E. Ullman wrote a few good books, try those.
