PHP The Good Parts - Book Review
May 03, 2010 @ 11:21:49

Brandon Savage has posted a review of one of O'Reilly Publishing's latest PHP-related offerings - PHP: The Good Parts.

My overall impression of the book was disappointment. To some degree I was hoping for a book that would show me special parts of PHP that perhaps I had overlooked; instead, the book focuses on a basic introduction to PHP, and one that isn't very detailed in the first place. The book's focus as an introduction also fails to teach basic programming concepts, meaning that non-programmers will not find the book to be useful.

He was disappointed in some of the specifics of the book as well - things that, while not technically false, might not be totally correct either. Overall, though, he didn't feel the book would be a valuable resource to other developers out there and that it was only average.
