CodeSnipers.com:
Book Review PHP Hacks
December 01, 2006 @ 11:32:00

On CodeSnipers.com there's a new book review of one of O'Reilly's PHP-related offerings, "PHP Hacks" by "Jack D. Herrington".

I had borrowed a Perl Hacks book from and friend and really liked it, it was great! It had a lot of practical things as well as some fun things. I expected the same from PHP Hacks and I was not disappointed!

She links to both the table of contents and the sample chapter to give you an idea of the feel of the book. There's two main sections in the review covering both aspects of the book - the Practical Stuff and the Fun Stuff. Of course, no book is perfect, so there is one thing she mentions that wasn't really worked into the book, but you'll need to read the review to find out what.

The books he (quickly) reviews are:

Overall, he enjoyed and would recommend the books, but each of them definitely has their place in a developer's learning process as well as their own unique fit as far as what the developer needs (ex. quick hacks versus general information).

Slashdot.org:
Book Review PHP Hacks
July 12, 2006 @ 12:18:35

Ever the fount of technical knowledge, Slashdot.org has posted this new book review covering the O'Reilly book "PHP Hacks" by Jack Herrington.

Given the current popularity of the Web development language PHP, it makes sense that newcomers to the language have a large number of introductory and reference volumes from which to choose. But for the more advanced PHP programmer, there are far fewer titles that explain how to make the most of the language, by applying it to solve relatively substantial problems. One such book is PHP Hacks: Tips & Tools for Creating Dynamic Websites.

They explore the contents of the book, noting that the bredth of topics covered is a bit more than they wanted to get into (and to check out the book's website for more). Overall, their review is good - the book does want it says and provides helpful and handy bits of code to help you just when you need it. There were a few technical issues they noticed, but, on the whole, it's a positive review.
