Quatrième de couverture
Master PHP, a 100% open source, cross-platform solution for server-side scripting!
Core PHP Programming is the first complete, practical guide to PHP 3.x for experienced Web developers. Discover how PHP borrows the best ideas from Java, Perl, and C to create a remarkably productive scripting environment. Then, with the guidance of a leading PHP developer, learn every technique you need to build fast and robust Web applications.
Master PHP syntax; then, review every PHP function, including I/O, data, and math functions; time, date, configuration, image, and database functions. See PHP at work in sample code that demonstrates sorting, searching, parsing, and string evaluation. Finally, walk through three complete Web/database integration applications, learning essential techniques for building HTML tables from SQL queries; tracking site visitors; storing content in databases, and much more.
- DEMONSTRATES how to write commercial quality code
- FEATURES dozens of nontrivial programs and examples -- no toy code!
- FOCUSES on the features and functions most important to real developers
- PROVIDES objective, unbiased coverage of cutting-edge technologies -- no hype!
Core PHP Programming delivers:
- Thorough, easy-to-understand coverage of PHP syntax and functions
- Step-by-step walkthroughs of three Web/database integration applications

This book is a nice reference but doesn't really have much beyond what you can find online. (which you can also download for free). In fact I find the online manual more helpful because of the annotations which make it a work in progress. It's a philosophical issue - do you like having a real book in your hands to browse through or do you not mind using a web browser?
Leon Atkinson aims his book at both beginner and advanced users and his writing style manages to score a direct hit! The basics are covered in sufficient detail to allow the intelligent beginner to follow along and learn useful stuff pretty quickly. This is achieved without talking down to advanced users, or bogging them down in masses of simple things. The organisation and layout of the book is good enough to allow most readers to jump straight into the sections that interest them most, so if you just want to use this book for reference, rather than have it act as a tutor, you can. Lots of references to more elementary programming texts are provided for anyone who does find themself struggling with the concepts, but I can't really imagine anyone needing them.
Coverage is very comprehensive too, so you never find yourself left in the lurch just as things are about to get really interesting, as I've had happen in many books aimed at beginners. So far, this book has provided good solid instruction of every PHP task I've needed or fancied (although a better index wouldn't go amiss!) and has frequently provided me with a coded solution all ready to plug in and use! I can see that this volume will have a place alongside my computer for some time!
1) It's a decent introduction to PHP, because it won't overwhelm the first-time web programmer, and pretty much assumes you don't know much of anything
2) Despite the amazingly disorgranized approach to the topic, certain sections are quite useful : regular expressions, various sorting methods, generating graphics on the fly, and basic approaches to integrating HTML & PHP are well covered.
3) Even though it's an apparent ploy to boost the page count of a book of somewhat shallow content depth, the fact that the type is larger than average with huge bold headlines for each function really helps if you're just flipping through looking for something specific.
4) The cover is actually attractive, unlike the usual monstrosity of a cover of Professional PHP Programming (why does WROX think we acutally want the faces of the authors staring up at you all the time ? ). OF course, Professional PHP Programming is far and away the best book on this topic if you have any programming experience.
