It took me a bit longer to read it then I had expected. At first, I had decided to just skim through the important chapters but it was interesting enough to change my decision. I then read all chapters one by one and realized that despite using phpMyAdmin on a daily basis, there is so much more to it that we developers are unaware of.
The author of this book is Marc Delisle, who is contributing to this project for more then 12 years. The book contains 19 chapters and 2 appendices. In my opinion the book can be divided broadly into 5 parts.
Chapter 1 to Chapter 3
I will say these warm up chapters as they cover installation, configuration and overview of phpMyAdmin interface in detail. Experienced users may skip these but beginners should go through each one of them.
