Robin a commencé sa carrière d'écrivain dans les maisons Cheshire pour personnes handicapées, où il était responsable de la mise en place des salles informatiques dans un certain nombre de maisons d'habitation, d'évaluer et d'adapter le matériel et les logiciels afin que les personnes handicapées peuvent utiliser la nouvelle technologie, et de l'écriture de pièces justificatives et articles pour une sélection de magazines nationaux.
Après cette carrière de Robin est devenu un cent pour cent par écrit orienté quand il a rejoint un éditeur de magazine grand, où il a occupé une variété de positions éditoriales différentes, avant de quitter pour devenir un écrivain indépendant.
A l'aube de l'Internet dans les années 1990, Robin se lance dans développement de sites Web (y compris la première station de radio sur Internet sous licence). Afin de permettre aux gens de continuer à surfer tout en écoutant, Robin a également développé les premiers connus fenêtres pop-up.
Dans les années 1990 et au début des années 2000 Robin et sa famille a déménagé aux États-Unis une couple de fois, une fois pour diriger une entreprise de conception Web, en Californie, puis à nouveau pour mettre en place un salon de thé anglais au Texas. Entre temps ils ont couru plusieurs pubs réussies, bed and breakfasts et les boîtes de nuit en Angleterre.
Ces dernières années, Robin a commencé à se concentrer plus étroitement sur la motivation et l'amélioration personnelle dans son écriture, tout en continuant à produire plus dans sa populaire série de livres sur l'informatique, qui ont maintenant été traduits en plusieurs langues différentes.
Robin vit sur la côte sud-est de l'Angleterre (où il écrit à temps plein), avec ses cinq enfants et femme Julie (une infirmière et professeur d'université) - entre eux, ils favorisent également trois enfants handicapés.

Out of all of those books, this is the one book I bought.
Now, this is still a thick, dense book. The author tries his best to make the book enjoyable to read. He gives good examples, and immediately explains why he does things this way, how things might be different, what mistakes you might make, and how you would implement this new knowledge. It is this explanation that makes this book worth buying. Every other book will tell you something and move on. I assume that other authors take for granted that they know the why's and how's and such, that they do not want to waste time on details that seem tedious to them. This author really works hard to make the content as easy to understand as possible.
This means that there are parts I am familiar with and skip over. That is fine. For the parts I struggle with, I am very grateful to have all of the expounded information available.
I cannot speak about updates from the 1st edition, since I did not read it. I will most likely buy the next edition, if the changes/additions are substantial. I would like to see more on forms and cookies. There really is no good book about forms and cookies, and the two chapters here are very good. and I would like the "putting it all together" chapter at the end to be substantially longer. That ending chapter was my favorite part. I don't know what else he can add to this book other than a section on html 5.
All in all, this is a great book. Buy it.
When introducing a new language, the author tends to tell you A LOT about the syntax of the language before going into any detail about what you can do with it. The best way to read the book is to have a project in mind as you go through these chapters, and try to incorporate new concepts as they come up. Of course, this will probably make your project a mess by the time it's done, but in the end it's a learning exercise. The book is full of code snippets to demonstrate functionality, but a bit lacking in what I would call real-world examples (until the last chapter).
In conclusion, I may not buy another book on PHP and MySQL for a long time. This one is thorough enough that I can find my way around and find anything else I need with online reference guides. But I think, conceptually, the JS section falls down a bit. Still, after I pick up a more basic JS guide, I'll likely keep this one around because of level of detail it goes into.
The chapter on CSS3 was also a great way to get up to speed on the latest additions to that whole thing.
The explanations are quick and to the point and the author uses an informal tone which I like.
As a first book on all of the topics included the book will seem too short on explanations and therefore it's not for absolute beginners in web programming. As a refresher or complimentary reading the book is great.
If you are an absolute beginner I'd suggest Larry Ullman's books because the tempo and the learning curve are lower in his introductory books.
One last important thing - the last chapter of the book is devoted to the practical application of all the topics covered and a full working example of dynamic website creation is given.
The only section that worked for me was the section on MySQL. It was similarly cursory, but I didn't find that I needed more until much later.
I suppose that if you just want a website that only needs the most basic input and output, this book would suit you.
My only gripe is that it seems like the 2012 update only chapters on CSS.
This book still uses PHP's (I believe) deprecated procedural mysql_connect() instead of teaching the object oriented MySQL improved mysqli or or the PDO ORM.
