"After you’ve mastered the fundamentals, you might want to continue your SQL study with another fine O’Reilly book, Learning PHP & MySQL (2nd Edition). The book, intended for beginners — beginners with some HTML and graphic design background — covers more topics and goes into greater depth than its Head First cousin. Despite the cute kookaburra birds on the front cover, the tone of this SQL book is less casual, but the writing style is equally clear."

"The discussions on Cookies, Sessions and Access Control, Security and Validation , and Error Handling make this a well-rounded book for the basic to the intermediate readers and implementers of these technologies. One particular aspect that seems to be a possible good addition to future editions of this book is the interaction with application servers in between the web and the database when considering these open source technologies."

"It's a pick any serious web programmer needs."
