Slashdot.org:
PHP 5 Recipies
December 07, 2005 @ 19:48:25

On Slashdot today, there's a review of one of the latest PHP offerings from APress - "PHP 5 Recepies".

With all the books being published recently about PHP a new one will need to find and fill a niche to distinguish itself. PHP 5 Recipes: A Problem-Solution Approach, published by Apress, has done so, in my view.

This is an intermediate-level volume exploring PHP 5 using a recipe approach where the basics of PHP 5's functionality are expressed systematically but in a small-topic by small-topic manner. Cook-book style, each topic is relatively autonomous and can be individually selected, as necessary, for information or review, similarly to how many refer to the Joy of Cooking for help on a cooking project. It's a source for instant solutions to common PHP-related problems. There are over 200 such recipes presented.

He continues the review, looking at what the "recipies" are what topics they cover, and how they integrate into the larger projects defined near the end of the book. Overall, though, he agrees that this book is "useful book to have in a programmer's library"...
