Professional PHP programming
by Jesus Castagnetto
This book is for anyone who has to implement web-based applications that go beyond simple static pages. If you are attempting to build a database-driven site, or you are new to the whole "dynamic web content generation paradigm", or just want to make some nifty server-side scripts, read this book. If you
are an experienced developer that has used until now only product ‘ABC’ that works for the ‘Kewl-OS’ platform, but feel the need to build solutions that are more portable and that can be developed in a short period of time, read this book.
