Review of Regular Expressions Cookbook | By Jan Goyvaerts, Steven Levithan
I have been pleasantly surprised that once you finish the book, you do feel a sense of confidence in tackling regular expression problems, with an aura of better understanding, and the book does provide for the foundations of learning, as well as a book off-the-shelf reference guide afterwards, so it serves as a read-once or read-many times book, which certainly is value for money.
I would therefore recommend this book as an essential artillery in your development arsenal, and I will certainly be revisiting this book in order to hone in on my regular expression skills, as I no doubt encounter the usefulness of this powerful skill in everyday coding situations
Prior Knowledge: None, but if you do have PHP or Perl skills, this will definitely act as a complement to your learning.
