About the Author
Top customer reviews
This book is great, doesn't hold your hands and moves at a fairly fast pace. In my view, this is not a beginners book but as long as you have a good working knowledge of basic web principles and programming fundamentals from any language this book has great value for anyone wanting to learn PHP.
The MYSQL section is also very informative just not as in depth as the PHP section, however it does enough to get you going with working on the web. The MYSQL section does not dive into deep database design principles, however that is not the scope of this book. I'm glad it kept it simple as the main goals are to get an interactive website up and running.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the book and still am learning
So far, it has not. I really do not like when something is guaranteed as "just follow these easy steps" and then the process does not work. THEIR process.
The poor customer service at Pearson Informit Amazon Kindle is inexcusable. Saying the words "customer service" many times is absolutely no substitute for real customer service.
I actually like the book, as I bought the paper version of the last edition.
I have a chat request in with Amazon that is days old now. My original emails to the publisher are below:

I bought the newer edition of PHP and MySQL, Web Development, Fifth Edition, by Luke Welling and Laura Thompson, ISBN: 9780321833891, but I can not find how to access the web version, which is promised in the book.
I received the included no help reply from your technical support group.
My expectations are low at this point after the impressive "Forwarding this email chain may cause issues with the routing in our system" comment.
In the several years that have passed since I bought the last edition, you have apparently gone backward from including a CD in the book.
I still would like to know how to access the web edition of this book.
