I ordered the SitePoint PHP Anthology 2nd Edition last Monday just in time to get the special $10 discount and today, it finally arrived just under two weeks after ordering it. Definitely not bad from the USA.
I had borrowed SitePoint’s Build Your Own Database Driven Website Using PHP & MySQL from a friend of mine and it is an absolutely great book. It’s very easy to follow and understand, it even filled in the holes that were missed in ITB004 (Databases) at uni. I highly recommend it to anyone new to PHP and databases in web development. It really is the best book I’ve read on these topics.
The excellence of this book is why I decided to go ahead and get the PHP Anthology from SitePoint instead of purchasing a PHP book from elsewhere. As well as the $10 discount, it also came with a free PHP quick reference poster, which is pretty mad. So now I shall probably be busy going through my new book for the next couple of weeks.
