PHP: The Good Parts is a book can take you into the palace of PHP, in which you will see all the essence features of PHP, including the type system, object-oriented mechanism, database interaction, safety assurance, built-in function library, etc.

But beware, don’t expect this book is a bible for PHP (you should know it has only 176 pages counting in its covers). So, this thin handbook is so brief that it enables you to quickly grasp the universal rules of PHP programming and then start using it, and help you get started with or look back the 80% of most important and most commonly used knowledge points in PHP development. After that, you should look for some more in-depth PHP books to read, like PHP Objects, Patterns, and Practice, 4th Edition, PHP Cookbook, 3rd Edition, PHP5 and MySQL Bible, Essential PHP Security and so on.

Generally speaking, PHP: The Good Parts is very foundational and more suitable for beginners, not for developers who have mastered PHP. If you want to be truly proficient in PHP, I think the only and best approach is the official PHP manual all the time! BTW, if read this book together with the PHP official manual, you will harvest more.
