5 Star Rating, Sample Chapter, and Everyone Wants Mysql

Happy [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fathers_day Father’s Day] to me, a new review of [http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/redirect?link_code=as2&path=ASIN/1590595475&tag=zillablog-20&camp=1789&creative=9325 PHP & PostgreSQL 8] came today on Amazon and lo and behold it came with a 5 star rating! Always nice to hear positive feedback on the book. For those who may not be aware, I also wanted to point out that you can download a sample chapter from the book [http://www.apress.com/book/bookDisplay.html?bID=10016 on the Apress website]. It’s a nice way to get a feel for the book if you’re curious about it. So there seems to be a lot of interest in PHP & PostgreSQL, but Jason and I have noticed that our PostgreSQL book doesn’t sell nearly as well as the MySQL counter part. For example, if you look on the Amazon site, it tells you that 80% of the people that browse the PHP/PostgreSQL book page end up choosing [http://www.apress.com/book/bookDisplay.html?bID=10017 Jason’s PHP/MySQL book] instead. PHP is still a growing language, and PostgreSQL has never been more popular, so what’s the issue?
