Summary: Good Tutorial
Comment: I'm a newbie to both PHP and MySQL on Mac OS X. I'm learning from this book and from the PHP/MySQL for Dummies. This is the better book. It has lots of good information, clear writing, and easy to follow tutorials. The graphic display of PHP code is very easy to follow: as the author modifies scripts to teach new concepts, the new code is presented in red in the code listings. In just a few days I've gone from knowing nothing about PHP and MySQL to writing my own PHP code. If you're trying to learn how to use PHP and MySQL this is the book to get (along with the MySQL users manual).

Summary: With this book you will REALLY learn PHP.
Comment: I have a read a few books on PHP prior to purchasing this one. Although I have used them to successfully cut and paste my way to a dynamic website, they didn't actually teach me PHP. They were more of a "write this to do this" type of book. However, after reading this book I now feel that I have a true understanding of PHP & mySQL. When I began reading this book I was relatively new to programming. I was enrolled in a JavaScript class so I had some experience under my belt but you could very easily learn from this book with no experience at all (except knowledge of HTML/XHTML is needed). The lessons are written well and I never felt lost or overwhelmed with information. I have a few of the Visual Quickstart series books (HTML by E. Castro, Photoshop 7, CSS and DHTML) and I find them all very well written and an easy way to learn. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn PHP. A Great Book! An incredible value!

Summary: Very hands on book
Comment: I just got this book and want to say that it nicely steps you through programming in php/mysql but doesn't treat you like an idiot. If your a "learn by doing" person like me, this book is great.
