I have 2 ways of storing record in an array, and I wanna know which one is better (efficiency).
$book = array('name' => 'name1', 'email' => 'email1');
$book = array('name' => 'name2', 'email' => 'email2');
$book = array('name' => 'name3', 'email' => 'email3');
$book['name'] = array('name1', 'name2', 'name3');
$book['email'] = array('email1', 'email2', 'email3');
thank you very much for any suggestion

Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community

A hash method, can you explain what it is?
The # of records are reasonably small considering # of addresses in your address book, so the number is around 5 to 200. I need to do some database operation like sorting, filtering duplication, insertion. These operations done inside script, so no database involved.

can you point out the advantage with this way cuz I can not see it.
I'd go one step further, if you can, and make it:
array(book => array(book1 => array(name => Catch22, email =>someemail)...)))
