I just love supporting this publisher since all their new books are available in both paper and PDF formats with discounts if you buy both at the same time. Their publisher and I have had several conversations about ebook support and the PDF version of this book now resides in my Sony eBook reader. (Their PDF's only have a watermark on them, no DRM!)

With programs like Dream Weaver and the ilk all now supporting PHP, there aren't too many excuses left for not making your web pages more active. With even the folks at the UH Botany department using PHP to pull up information from their HUGE flower database, it just gets easier and easier to do. So I'll admit it, my degree is in computer science but I've never been a great coder. I'm always trying to find examples to start from and this book is perfect for cook book coders like myself. With examples like string searches, date formatting, forms handling, session tracking and email; the authors have clearly taken their pain points and put them on paper.

A great book to add to your reference library.
