Owned this book before
on February 13, 2014
I had to order another because I was tired of the book slowly ripping away LOL. I owned the book and used it everyday so the wear was a bit more han usual so I bought this one to replace it.
TO the point.. This book is great for those wanting to learn, it explains things in english not $90,000-$142,000 a year words so you actually catch on to whats going on.
The samples are a bit on the lengthy side but if you are still wanting to learn how to do a shopping cart, this shows you step by step, I love the PHP part although I wish they explained a bit more on it but overall, you learn the fundamentals of programming with PHP and mySQL. This book I carried like a bible thumper, I hardly when anywhere without it. Im just an average programmer who has to use a book as a reference when programming si Im not like most that can wake up with folgers coffee and complete write code a proxy without even looking away but I sure can conntect the dots when needed and have something developed and works really good.!
ANyways, I saw purchase this book if you are a newbie or simply need something to reference. Honestly i've read over 10 different books and they all explain things to you like you've already had 170hours of programming at some Ivy league school, for those who can afford all of that, This book will for sure give you some uplift and confidence. The author of this book is awesome too
