XML and PHP is designed to teach you just one thing: how to use PHP to create XML-based applications. Unlike some of the heavier books out there, it does not attempt to cover every single PHP function; rather, it zooms in on the XML API built into PHP and illustrates, with some well thought-out examples how they can be applied to different situations.

The book is divided into nine chapters, each one covering a different piece of the XML/PHP pie. The chapters are arranged in order of complexity, which makes it possible to read the book sequentially, from cover to cover, or use it as a reference, by jumping straight to the chapter dealing with the topic you’re interested in. I found this to be a very sensible approach, though if you are new to the topic, I would still recommend reading it sequentially.
