Summary: Excellent resource
Comment: This book was an excellent introduction to PHP 5. Coming from a J2EE background, Gilmore's precise and detailed explanations helped me understand what PHP 5 had to offer, engineer to engineer. Gilmore's book assumes that you're intelligent, and that you're interested in the details. He then explains those details in depths. All in all, an excellent book.

Summary: Perfect PHP and MySQL Book.
Comment: I just got done putting all of my other PHP developer books on the shelf. The author does an excellent job of providing rich explanations, relevant coding examples, and insight to a broad range of topics that all PHP5 developers will use. Don't get me wrong, there is no fluff in this book, its all PHP and MySQL muscle.

I'm constantly drawn back to advanced topics such as XML, LDAP, web services, SOAP, OOP in PHP5, advanced MySQL, and secure programming in PHP. Key concepts are amazingly well presented and easy to understand. This resource has already made a positive impact on how my applications are developed.

Not to take away from the beginning developer, there are chapters for warming up to PHP and MySQL. Within no time you'll be writing PHP code and have at your fingertips an excellent resource for building advanced PHP and MySQL web applications.

A+++++++ for the author.

Summary: First Review on the book! What to Say??
Comment: PHP 5 and MySQL is a GREAT book and with out a doubt a new book that is definitely going to be a keeper. This one will not spend much time on the shelf and I am retiring my PHP4 Developers book. I have already folded a hundred corners for reference and I am also picking up on some stuff that I hadn't picked up on before.

Using C# Client with a PHP Web Service
This is a classic example of the diversity of the PHP language and it's ability to fit into even the most proprietary environments. C# is a good language but I learned something totally new here in this example.
I am recommending this book to all the people in the shop, beginner to expert, it works for all.
