Brian Swan has posted a book review of Jason Gilmore's book "Easy PHP Websites with the Zend Framework".

I had been itching to dive into the Zend Framework, so I jumped at the opportunity. It has taken me a while to get around to reviewing it, but I'm glad I did. Jason's writing style makes challenging concepts easy to learn and his focus on good development practices are sure to inspire you to become a better developer. Here's more detail on what I thought after reading the book...

He talks about the things he likes - like the fact that the book uses a single application to base the examples on and that it focuses on the development process as well as the end result. He notes that the book struggles a bit when trying to find a target audience. He felt the book jumped around from beginner to advanced topics quickly and that a less experienced user might get confused. Overall, though, he found the book a good addition to any developer's library.
