"PHP is a rapidly growing Web technology which enables web designers to build dynamic, interactive web applications, incorporating information from a host of databases, and including features such as e-mail integration and dynamically generated images. PHP4 added tons of features to make web application development even easier, and this book will show you how to make the most of the language's powerful capabilities."

"This book is a complete tutorial in PHP's language features and functionality, starting with the basics and building up to the design and construction of complex data-driven websites. Fully working examples in the book include a directory-style web search engine, a mailing list management system, a web based file editor, and a graphical online shopping mall guidebook."

"Anybody who knows HTML can use this book. If you've done any programming, that will be useful, but it's not a requirement. You can run all of the code on either a Windows or UNIX (e.g. Linux) system, and the book explains how to set up a web server and database in both of these environments.
