This book is very well written but you will find it exquisitely frustrating if you are unfamiliar with XML. I am an embedded systems programmer new to web technology but I am pretty familiar with PHP and Javascript. The lack of XML knowledge made this book a total waste of time for me. It is amazing and stupefying why the author would arrogantly presume that his readers would know XML when he is already presuming that they will know HTML. The net effect of this is, for almost EVERY example in the book he uses some XML so if you do not know XML then you will not understand what is going on. My search for a simple and elementary book that basically teaches you how to weave PHP+HTML+AJAX goes on. This is a disease that Application programmers have. They are used to dealing with everything in an abstract manner ALL the time so they totally forget at what level of clarity their readership is. This is one of the reasons that Bruce Eckel's 'Thinking in C++' and 'Thinking in Java'... Read more
First off I'm fairly new to web programming (Javascript and PHP) but I didn't find much to broaden my knowledge with this book. Ajax Javascript is covered extremely well elsewhere ("Pragmatic Ajax", "Ajax in Action" and "Ajax Design Patterns" for instance) and is PHP programming ("PHP and MySQL Web Development" and "Advanced PHP Programming").
The book is not complete enough to serve as an introduction to Javascript or PHP. It really doesn't seem to cover the issues with distributed asynchronous programming either.
There is a huge need for a book that concentrates on building solid asynchronous servers with PHP. For instance how can state be carried from server call to server call (PHP session management?). What happens if multiple XML requests are sent while a PHP script is running? Can a single instance handle multiple requests without restarting from the beginning? How can a long running PHP program (yes you need to change the server time out) handle streams of data... Read more
A technical book is only useful if it appropriate for your current skills and knowledge. I am a system admin who has written a fair amount of C++ code and lots of Perl and other scripts. I now need to develop a simple web app from scratch, and this book was perfect for me. While I have many issues with the PHP language, the popularity of LAMP solutions makes PHP a necessary evil that will be around for some time.

This book is a great intro to AJAX as well as PHP, XML, CSS and the DOM. The book is laid out and progresses very well, assuming virtually no knowledge in the first three chapters and with many sidebar comments that answer anticipated questions. The code examples are explained well and give you some good, functional examples to play with and learn from.

They also do well by giving brief intros to important concepts such as DOM and CSS, but then provide links to good on-line resources rather than getting bogged down in these details. Why reinvent... Read more
