The book targets people with just HTML experience and claims to be able to have them developing dynamic web pages rapidly. I don't feel that it meets that. Topics quickly become advanced without a full explanation. I think that will leave a novice dazed. As with any book that teaches by example, it runs the risk of either the examples being so boring that you quickly quit following them or so complicated the reader can’t follow the lesson. This book has examples on both ends with almost none falling at the appropriate level.
Now, if you are a fairly competent programmer in some other language and know HTML, this book will work for you. The basic examples cover basic programming topics. These a competent programmer can ignore. The complicated ones will not be outside of their ability to grasp.
If you are a programmer and would like to add PHP to your tools, then get this book. If you are new to programming I’d have to tell you to start with something else.
