    1. At OptimWise, I build websites with WordPress, and currently focus on front-end development (HTML and CSS). I’ve tweaked PHP, but I want to get better at modifying WordPress themes and plugins, which requires working with PHP and MySQL. This book was very helpful, as it includes step-by-step examples of building simple web applications with PHP and MySQL, and covers database fundamentals. The book is visual and easy to understand, explaining concepts and providing practical application. Like o [...]

    2. After staring for what seemed like hours at the bookstore trying to figure out what PHP/MySQL book to buy, I found this gem. It is written in a way that is very easy to understand. The author gives you the information, then you're asked to use what you've learned to solve a problem you may encounter as a developer. The situations the author puts in front of you are always humorous, and I thought it was great that I was actually laughing quite a bit while learning something that could be very com [...]

    3. The 'head first' series has a way of explaining computer language so that it does not seem so daunting. The photographs, exercises, and diagrams truly helped me grasp heavy concepts in record-breaking time. That being said, I'm only a beginner in the language. It definitely didn't hold my hand on everything (such as using the programs it told me to install in my computer) but I suppose that can be expected. By use of the internet there are so many free videos and tutorials online that it was not [...]

    4. want to know how it's like to enjoy every minute of a book you're reading? Well, this book is just the right for you then. You'll learn php and mysql in no time, and have loads of fun while you're at it :)

    5. The book presents a differentiated didactics, full of stories and illustrations. Probably a good choice to introduce programming to new entrants in the area or even to a younger audience.I would not recommend this book for those who already have considerable experience in the area, on the grounds that there are several other more objective bibliographic options on the subject that allow a more direct and in-depth learning.

    6. This is a very unusual and unconventional book in its design. I suppose its design is intended to make things easier to learn, the way images and visualizations are aggressively used. I didn't end up using the book in a linear fashion, but there were some areas that I found useful, like the part detailing regular expressions, which none of my other PHP books had content on. If you're learning PHP on you're own, it's a decent alternate book that you can use as a reference as it has some unique to [...]

    7. If I see a Head First book related to something I am trying to learn or improve my knowledge on, I will pick it up and use it. Their approach to literally diving into a subject works for me. You write code as you go along as well as take part in crossword puzzles and other challenges. It sounds juvenile at first, but even for the seasoned geek, it makes learning even more fun!I have been dabbling in PHP for years and this book put together PHP with MySQL perfectly!Definitely 5 stars for the novi [...]

    8. This was abandoned, not because it wasn't good or useful, but because I started a PHP course and it lost its usefulness for me. I would recommend it to others as a thoughtful and fun PHP & MySQL tutorial.

    9. I have never imagined that I can find a book that is satisfying my needs in PHP and MYSQL Like this. it has been written and YOU as one who is trying to be a dynamic web developer in mind. You will like it because as you will finish it, you can develop a complete CMS on your own!

    10. I enjoyed it a lot, just like every book in the series. I read it very quickly because I had to work on a project and just wanted the basic info on the PHP and MySQL but it was really fun

    11. Another winner in the Head First series. The book teaches you basic PHP in a simple manner and continues the simplicity and easy readability that is a trademark of the original HF Java.

    12. This was for my database class. Probably the most interesting textbook. Only because it had me make a website about alien abductions.
