(For some odd reason goodreads has this book as "Beginning PHP 6" when it actually is about 5.3)

I borrowed this book to rapidly get up to speed on PHP for a small project. PHP is a very easy language to learn when coming from other languages like C#.

I was glad to see the book cover some decent practices such as how to do Model-View-Controller (MVC) type patterns in PHP as well as unit testing via PHPUnit.

PHP is an ugly language, although the author tried his best.
