 in
While there has been a lot of web development in Perl, and Python is growing in this area, PHP is a tool designed specifically for dynamic web development.
Conclusions

If you are doing serious PHP development, Web Application Development with PHP 4.0 is essential. It will make the difference between “my program finally works” and “I feel good about my program”. PHP Essentials, while not a great book, offers needed information to get you up to speed. What's missing in sophisticated programming is made up for in terms of the ease at which it can be read and its value as a language reference.
