This is a very good book. It's not only the list of all of PHP command, but it also has some chapters called Case Study, where it explains about making shopping cart and bulletin baord with PHP and MySQL. But you have to know C and C++ before you read this book. I know C but I don't know C++ (the OOP). That's why I stop reading this book, and buy some OOP book. Maybe I'll continue to read it after I finished my OOP book.
