Great read if slightly confusion at some point is you're not knowledgeable in the topic, just wish more examples were presented. Quite a nice book. I wouldn't say it's a "must have", because some topics were only given a brief outline.
I wonder why the authors included those paragraphs where they didn't give the topic a full coverage, but presented a short summary and said "You should already know this". Why did they include those paragraphs at all? It concerns mostly chapters devoted to MySQL. General conclusion - "Above average".
But so far not that perfect as I expected. To be honest they were quite advanced for my php knowledge and experience.
The good thing about the book is that even though it assumes you have the basic knowledge, it still provides an introductory background on most of the two PHP and MySQL topics. This is not a "PHP and MySQL for dummies" so don't expect to learn the very basics nor will you become an expert in either topic by just reading the book. Even if you read the book thoroughly, becoming an expert requires years of hard work and experience. Having said that, his book is a good guide to make it there. If you are at least a basic developer, this book will help you increase your knowledge drastically and create much better apps.
If you are already an experienced dev, the book will probably still give you a few insights on things you don't use all that often and help keep your edge. Finally, its a great addition to my library for referencing and a good read. This book is choke-full of information, examples and best practices written by some of the foremost experts in their respective fields. All of the authors clearly have extensive experience working on setups requiring expert knowledge. Best of all, they are not afraid of thinking outside the box and the solutions they present are in no way limited to pure PHP and MySQL solutions.
This book really does expect something from the reader, so perhaps a word of caution is in order: I strongly recommend that you first read Chapter 1 of the book, helpfully available on the books' website. If you are not familiar with the contents presented here, you're not likely to gain much from your purchase.
