Robin Nixon has been a writer for 30 years, producing in excess of 500 articles for many of the UK's top magazines, and has authored over 15 books. He started his writing career in the Cheshire homes for disabled people, where he was responsible for setting up computer rooms in a number of their residential homes, evaluating and tailoring hardware and software so that disabled people could use the new technology, and writing supporting documentation and articles for a selection of national publications. After this Robin joined a large magazine publisher, where he held a variety of different editorial positions, before leaving to become a self-employed writer, and later branching out into developing websites (including the world's first licensed Internet radio station). In order to enable people to continue to surf while listening, Robin also developed the first known pop-up windows. Robin and his family have relocated to the USA twice, once to run a web design company in California, and then again to set up an English Tearoom in Texas. In between times they ran several successful pubs, bed and breakfasts and nightclubs in England. But in recent years Robin has returned to writing, focusing on motivation and personal improvement, while still continuing to produce his popular series of books on computing, many of which have now been translated into multiple languages. Robin lives on the south-east coast of England (where he writes full time), along with his five children and wife Julie (a trained nurse and university lecturer) - between them they also foster three disabled children.

What I didn't like about the book, was the fact that it is somewhat more conceptual in nature than other references (something I usually avoid) and some of the examples seem unnecessary dry (there's got to be something more fun to learn than making a join method). However, Robin Nixon is probably one of the best, if not the best, writer in this field and really overcomes any shortcomings in his book with his uncanny ability to step in the shoes of a beginner. He's written loads of books and might be the author of one of the best selling php books, which is big deal.
I gave only 4 stars because a technical book needs an index and this book doesn't have one. Actually, there is an index but it isn't for this book. Page 239 is the last page and you can see in Amazon's Look Inside that the "index" has hundreds of entries for pages beyond that. Further, the index page numbers for pages that exist are completely bogus. My guess is that the index was created using a word processor for a draft that had an entirely different pagination that what was printed. Further, he doesn't provide chapter numbers on any text page so that when he refers to another chapter you have to use the Contents to find it.
I'm learning from Nettuts and Youtube videos and I find these two really, really helpful to fast track my learning.
