"The overall tone of the book is one of a senior programmer showing you the ropes...The tone helps to make the text a bit more personal, but at the same time it doesn't get caught up in jargon and makes sure that each explanation remains clear...If you are a PHP programmer then this text will probably hit the mark, giving you the jump on PHP 5 you need without wasting your time covering the stuff you already know."
--Paul Schneider, PhD, KickStartNews.com, August 2004

"I own a sizable collection of O'Reilly books and have found them to in general be very well written and useful. Upgrading to PHP 5 continues this tradition superbly...this text covers the changes in PHP 5 in detail in a surprisingly brief 300 pages (and small page footprint). A worthy addition to a book collection, provided you already have general PHP reference available."
--Conrad Shultz, Amazon.com review, July 2005

"If you're looking for a guide to help you get up to speed on PHP 5 and you already know PHP 4 then this is the book you'll want. Adam sticks to the O'Reilly formula and his knowledge of PHP is second to none."
