"Concepts not explained properly" - by Vikram on 31-MAR-2013
Reviewer Rating: 1 star rating2 star rating3 star rating4 star rating5 star rating
This is not a book for a peson new to programming. So if PHP is your first programming language this is not the book for you.

Chapter 6 (objects) is especially bad. Concepts are cluttered together and explanation is poor. Language and examples are very manual like.

In a nutshell its better to read the PHP manual online for free than reading this book.
