No need for 5 year at the university to get a computer science master.


They also have the same with "24 hours"... For the slow readers among us I guess. Given the 10-minute book on PHP has 264 pages, it's about 26 pages per minute, or a little more than 2 seconds per page, not counting the time it takes to turn the pages. One must be really quick.


Come now, reading the book doesn't teach you PHP- buying it does!


Well, I concede buying this book probably will teach one something... but I doubt it'd be PHP.
