"If I had to recommend just one PHP book, it would be No Starch Press' Wicked Cool PHP. I find No Starch books to be both informative and enjoyable reads, and this book is no exception."
--Joey deVilla, Developer Connection

"The title alone should be reason enough to buy this PHP resource guide. You'll learn how to do many things with PHP like: send and receive email notifications, track your visitors' behavior with cookies and sessions, override PHP's default settings, manipulate dates, images, and text on the fly, harness SOAP and other web services, create an online poll, ecard delivery system, and blog."
--Glen Stansberry, NETTUTS

"No Starch gets 'it' when it comes to what geeks want and PHPites, you will WANT this book!"
--Daniel McKinnon, Amazon.com

"Beautifully printed with many color illustrations, the book is an excellent guide for digital photographers, from top pros to advanced amateurs, who wish to learn how to properly convert their RAW files into striking images."
--Roger Richards, Digital Filemaker
