Thanks for the nice words on the book, Lou, and for your question. I agree that everyone should be using MySQLi, if they can. However, a surprising number of Web hosts still don't support MySQLi. And the mysql functions are more forgiving in terms of forgetting to specify the database connection. So I think for beginners, the mysql functions are the softest introduction still. In the next edition, I'll probably make the switch, but this is something I consider and, especially because this book is for beginners, I'm erring on the side of caution.
