Most XML and PHP readers have nice things to say about the book. Take a look:
"With XML already huge and web services becoming the 'next big thing', this book, with its excellent examples, will be invaluable to anyone processing or producing XML using PHP."
Graeme Merrall, author of PHP Functions Essential Reference and PEAR contributor
"The real question with any book is whether buying it is money well-spent. In many cases you can do as well with online forums, help files, man pages, etc. In the case of PHP and XML, however, I wouldn't recommend self-help. You'll burn up a lot of time and if your time is worth anything at all you'll come out ahead by coughing up the 40 bucks for this book...I give this one two thumbs up. Recommended." Read full review
Ron Newman, The Bozeman Linux Users Group
"XML and PHP covers the sought after information regarding the use of XML from PHP where other books only mention the topic in a brief chapter or two. The author has done a good job of introducing and explaining concepts coupled with useful code samples. I would recommend this book to any PHP programmer who needs to work with XML or even beginners in PHP and XML."
Justin Grant, Software Engineer, Cloverlink Systems Inc.
"A fairly readable and interesting book, and one which most XML/PHP programmers are sure to appreciate. If you're a PHP developer looking to build new skills, you should definitely add XML and PHP to your shopping list." Read full review
Santosh Jaini, Systems Engineer, Nautilus Systems Inc.
"For developers hoping to integrate XML into their efforts, this book is a great place to start. It shows in detail the most common uses of XML currently, and has a detailed compile guide, so you can get up and running with the examples. It is particularly strong with XMLRPC and SOAP. I think anyone who is embarking on a project that uses PHP and requires either of those technologies should buy this book." Read full review

"The book's author, Vikram Vaswani, took the time to properly research the topics in the book. It is an excellent guide to implementing XML supported applications using PHP. Vikram's writing style is clear and mercifully terse - finding and understanding the needed information is easy."
Zak Greant, author of PHP Functions Essential Reference and co-founder of PHP QA team
"Just wanted to say what an excellent resource the book is... clear, concise, and overall extremely useful!"

"Got my copy at Borders last night...couldn't put it down till 2 AM when the type was getting very blurry. With most of my XML work in Perl and just a touch of Java I was pleased to find the level of support provided by PHP and even more pleased by this book. Just what I was looking for...great job!"
