PHP book recommendation
Can anyone recommend a good PHP book for someone just starting out? Thanks!
Just search for PHP tutorials, they all are good.
is the one I am reading now and it has been great so far. Check it out. PHP for the World Wide Web
That said, I've heard that the absolute best PHP book to learn is . I ordered a copy and it is still on it's way so I have not read it yet, but you may look into that as well.
PHP and MySQL Web Development
Your best bet is to look at the reviews on Amazon, for the latest books available and user comments.
PHP for the word wide web is a good one. I've also used PHP5 and MySQL for Dynamic Websites, both from Peachpit Press. Of the two, I'd go with PHP5 and MySQL for Dynamic Websites

Reason: added info
http://in.php.net/ is the best site to learn php, instead of purchasing a book you can download this manual and study or take printout.
also you can use several php related sites more info.
im using Head First PHP and MySQL.
Head first series only came out december last year. so they are in early production, however i think are brilliant. and are very easy to follow. and quite comical
I second Head First PHP and MySQL, fantastic book!
