"Beginning PHP4 offers an almost ideal introductory tutorial to one of today's hotter scripting languages. This book really is everything that the novice needs to start building dynamic Web sites that are powered by PHP4, but old hands at programming also will find in it valuable information."

"PHP 4, from Wrox publishing, provides a good overview of the PHP Hypertext Processing language, with some nice examples and case studies. When it comes to PHP, the number of books available is still slim, but thanks to WROX Publishing, we have a new addition that serves as a good reference to anyone starting out using PHP."

"As with the previous edition of Beginning PHP (for version 3), the book includes very solid case studies of implementing real-life solutions in PHP. While this book doesn't explicitly detail the differences between PHP 3 and PHP4, it does give a good reference of the newer features in PHP 4. All in all this is a great book that will help anyone learn to use PHP or help already knowledgeable PHP developers hone some of their skill."
