Great ZF2 guide however only with prior ZF2 experience/knowledge
on January 21, 2017
While already outdated as of this writing, it is still the most current "book" on ZF2 (2 stars for that). "Learning By Example" is a fitting title under certain circumstances: if you already understand the basic concepts of ZF (structures, syntax). For example the code included in the book is incomplete in certain areas and the only way to know that is to already know what's missing just from glancing over the provided code, so in that aspect it's a great learning tool to reinforce prior knowledge. Throughout this book you'll encounter many real life examples (building blocks) as you're working towards a final/standalone application.
Before delving in this book and to get the most out of this book, I would recommend taking a look at the official Zend site under documentation (the "learn" section) and traverse the examples there; get familiar with the structure, options, and capabilities first. If you're brand new to ZF/2 I probably would not recommend this book; if you're new to PHP, you're definitely in the wrong area of Amazon!
