When trying to figure out how to implement something, do you ever wish that the examples you find would just 'cut to the chase'? ... skip the theory & just show me a rough idea of how to go about it?

This book contains 100 hacks/recipes, satisfying the above need. Each is 2- 3 pages, which can (mostly) be run right from their folder (~100 folders in the downloaded code samples, of course). A hack-folderName cross-refernece would have been nice, but, hey ...

They put you on the track in moments - no need to read the whole book for any hack/recipe - just jump right in (to the problem of your day) ... and you can modify/enhance, as your needs dictate.

Code documentation is non-existent and explanation is sparse; but, they do, indeed, satisfy the need for quick examples in 2 - 3 pages!

`lovin it! NICE format ...

There are a lot of ways to learn a language, and PHP is a popular one because it's dynamic. If you truly want to unleash the potential of this dynamic language than you need to get this book! Jack goes into detail and even provides scripts for hundreds of uses with the perspective of a seasoned veteran, it's easy to use and reference different sections.

I like this book, it has very good examples, well elaborated explanation. If you know PHP well then this is good book for you otherwise some of the example are hard to understand. Over all this is the must have book for PHP Programmer/

when I saw the title I was sure it is exactly what I needed, some special tips and tricks, something that you can't find easily on the internet. But it was nothing more.

The good thing is now I have some good ideas in a book and don't have to search every time online.

Hasn't been as helpful as I had hoped. A hard read. Not much else to say just filling in text.

This is a very real world book, and gives some good examples with accurate working source code.

The XML feed handling with Regular Expressions, I was able to put to good use within a matter of minutes.

The code in this book definitely lives up to the "hacks" title, but that's okay because it's filled with lots of good ideas and useful snippets.
