The Zend Developer Zone has a new book review today - a look at the Oracle Technology Network offering "The Underground PHP and Oracle Manual" .
Released last month by Oracle and trumpeted from Chris Jones' blog, The Underground PHP and Oracle Manual is an excellent guide for anyone looking to work with these two technologies.
I'm not a fanboy for Oracle but this review will read like one. It's hard to find anything to criticize in this book. It's an easy read and it's not burdened with unnecessary technical jargon. This is a book I will recommend to my friends who know Oracle and want to know more about PHP or visa-versa.
In his long version, Cal talks about the climate for PHP books these days, noting how much the author's skill has to do with its success. Thankfully, this book is doing just fine. He talks about the contents of the different chapters, brief summaries of what to expect.
His only complaint? That he'd like it in a book (dead tree) editon too...
