Personal motivations

I hate boring books. I hate authors that try to sound smart, without delivering any value. My books are fun, strange, cheesy and exciting. I write my books as if I'm sitting next to you in a pub, and we're discovering PHP together. You won't just read about PHP in this book. You'll go on an adventure with me, and at the end of the journey, you'll be a developer.

With the help of your feedback, I won't rest until this is the #1 resource for learning the PHP programming language. Free updates for life!
