"This book was all that I needed to learn PHP. Far more than a language reference, it contains the advice and recommendations of two true PHP experts."

-Jeff Barr, Founder and Developer, Syndic8.com

* Master new features for XML parsing, Web services, graphics, and more

If PHP can do it, you can do it too . . .
