This book is the first lucid and accurate introduction to Yii that I have found. While the Yii forums and documentation on the home site have a huge amount of information, much of it is obfuscated, inaccurate, and/or incomplete. This book has taken a large project I'm working on back to Yii and away from Symfony, Codeigniter, Zend, etc. This book will be a major contributor to the success and expanded use of Yii.

I've been looking for a Yii reference book for a while. Endless Google searching and message board skimming is no sub for a great hard-copy reference on your desk. Winesett's text is easy to follow and intuitive. I'm lovin' Yii and "Agile Web App..." is making the experience palatable. This framework has legs.

This is a review for the book and not the framework, but as a quick aside: If you're here considering whether or not to use the Yii framework - I highly recommend you do. It is extremely well thought out, it gets a project up and running in minutes and it's very flexible, powerful and all those other things you wish a PHP framework would be.

Yii has an active and supportive community, but the first stop should be at Mr. Winesett's book. The book got me through everything I need to do to build applications and showed how Yii does it better and/or faster. It covers the sweet new Gii automation tools, which literally help you build out the skeleton of a working mvc app in a few minutes. As the smaller print in the title suggests, the book will open your eyes to some agile processes that will help you in ways that extend well beyond the framework.

It's probably worth mentioning that the book follows a project from beginning to end, approaches it in an agile manner and builds it using Yii. The effect is such that you finish the book knowing exactly where Yii will fit into your life as a developer.

Yii as a framework has been waiting for a book like this.
