James McLean has done his own review of the APress book "Beginning PHP and Oracle":
Published in August 2007, Beginning PHP and Oracle: From Novice to Professional weighs in at a hefty 763 pages long. It's one for the bookshelf, not for the backpack thats for sure!
He goes through the sections of the book - the PHP intro, some of its "Enterprise thinking", mentions of MySQL and SQLite and, of course, the large amount of Oracle content (both in using Oracle alone and in connecting the two together).
If you're in the market for a book to perhaps learn PHP and would like to move onto advanced concepts later on, this book is worth a look. If youâ€™re an experienced PHP developer and looking for an introduction into the world of Oracle, this is the book for you.
