Review of the book: Zend Framework 2 Cookbook written by Josephus Callaars, issued by Packt Publishing.

There is many cookery books although I haven’t seen yet any about Zend Framework 2.
No matter how you name the book, title is just a title and every book have to stand out of the competitions. Otherwise is will be just one of the many cookbooks…

 Zend Framework 2 Cookbook

To be honest – there is no too much books about Zend Framework 2, so writing such book is worth fighting for.

The typical cookery book contains many recipes, provided with nice looking pictures and hints about how to make some dish or meal. Cookbooks teach people by practice and repetition till we reach perfection.

We won’t become good cook-progammer in 24 hours, which is quite often used in the books related to Computer Science, trying to convince us that it is possible.

Did the author rised to the occasion?

I will try to answer for that question in this review.

Review of the book: Zend Framework 2 Application Development from Packt Publishing, written by Christopher Valles.

Zend Framework 2 Application Development

At the beginning of this review I would like to say that it is my second book about Zend Framework 2. This gives me a bigger picture and I could compare this book with the previous one.

What I should say first is to that this is not a reference book. If you are looking for the one, which describes Zend Framework 2 in details, covering many components and new things in second version of the framework – I would recommend to find another book and read it. I was hopefully a reader of such book – it was the first book I read about ZF2.
Although the author wrote in the book that he covers over 90% components of the framework – I revised it and in my opinion it is just a misunderstanding.
