  1. PHP Programming Solutions is a good general purpose reference book targeted toward intermediate-level PHP programmers. The examples are simple and complete enough that it’s possible a beginner could learn PHP from the book.

    It is organized like a catalog, and quite frankly most of the information in it could be found by doing a simple Google search. But if you’re like me, and enjoy having a book in front of you, I’d highly recommend it.

    Something I didn’t like about the examples was the heavy reliance on the PEAR libraries. For someone who’s looking only to solve the problem at hand… in PHP… this will undoubtedly be adequate. Someone interested in more detailed explanations, such that the solution may be generally applied to other languages, may be disappointed in this aspect of the book, as I was.

  2. I purchesed this book hoping it would give good examples. NOT!!! Just another book for people who already know what they are doing. Now this is my opinion and this book did nothing to help explain the INCLUDE function or how to handle directories in php which is the help I was looking for.
