Keith Casey's Blog:
Book Review PHP Team Development
November 17, 2009 @ 11:49:51

Following up on Lorna Mitchell's and Brandon Savage's reviews on the Packt Publishing book "PHP Team Development", Keith Casey has added a few of his own thoughts on the quality and content inside.

Okay, okay, it's just a poor sentence structure and I'm being mean picking at one some little mistake. Except that it's not one little mistake. The book is filled with glaring mistakes like this. If you're a regular reader of this blog, you know that I average 1-2 typos/post so maybe I don't have room to talk. Of course, there is one difference: I don't have an editor. I don't have someone with the sole duty of reviewing my writing and correcting it. Packt Publishing does... well, at least I thought they did.

He goes on to mention a few of the other weak points about the book including its presentation of MVC as a "silver bullet", the recommendation of CVS and the severe lack of PHP-related topics. He sums up his feelings on the book in one sentence:

Overall, I can't recommend this book to anyone. [...] Further, as of this book, I am no longer willing to receive or review books from Packt Publishing [because of it].
