Default cannot create table

I am new in PHP & MySQL, when i work with the coding from page 129, i cannot create the reviews table. My code is:

//connect to MySQL
$connect = mysql_connect("localhost", "root", "mysqlpass") or
die ("Hey loser, check your server connection.");
mysql_select_db ("wiley");

//create "reviews" table
$reviews = "CREATE TABLE reviews (
    review_movie_id int(11) NOT NULL,
    review_date date NOT NULL,
    review_name varchar(255) NOT NULL,
    review_reviewer_name varchar(255) NOT NULL,
    review_comment varchar(255) NOT NULL,
    review_rating int(11) NOT NULL default 0,
    KEY (review_movie_id),
    ) TYPE=MyISAM";
$results = mysql_query($reviews)
or die (mysql_error());
//populate the "reviews" table

$insert = "INSERT INTO reviews
    review_movie_id, review_date, review_name,
    review_reviewer_name, review_comment, review_rating)
    ('1', '2003-08-02', 'This movie rocks!',
    'John Doe','I thought this was a great movie even though
    my girlfriend made me see it against my will.' ,'4'),
    ('1','2003-08-01','An okay movie',
    'Billy Bob','This was an okay movie. I liked Eraserhead better.','2'),
    ('1','2003-08-10','Woo hoo!',
    'Peppermint Patty','Wish I\'d have seen it sooner!','5'),
    ('2','2003-08-01','My favorite movie',
    'Marvin Marian','I didn\'t wear my flair to the movie but I loved
    it anyway.','5'),
    ('3','2003-08-01','An awesome time',
    'George B.','I liked this movie, even though I thought it was
    an informational video from our travel agent.','3')";

$insert_results = mysql_query($insert)
or die(mysql_error());

The error message that I've got:
You have an error in your SQL syntax. Check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ') TYPE=MyISAM' at line 9

what's wrong with that, please help, thx
