I am wondering what is the best book to learn PHP from..
The, basically everything there is to know book:
PHP5 and MySQL Bible
Or, the more laid-back type of book such as:
What would you think is best?
My programming knowledge is somewhat limited;
I understand what variables, arrays, operators, and stuff are..
I know HTML/CSS
I know some Java, Turing..
Take that knowledge with a grain of salt though because I have a friend who wants to learn as well and his knowledge is basically just the understanding of what variables are.
Now I know some will say learning from books just' dont work, but, lets say if it did, what type of book would be best? The big bible, or the strait to the point Sams'.
Additionally, do you know if the PHP5 and MySQL Bible is a good book? Amazon has negative reviews which sorta scares me.
If you have any other books, please let me know about them!
