Hugh Williams and David Lane have written a book called "Web Database
Applications with PHP and MySQL'' which you can obtain from Amazon at
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS...647779-6796618.

This book has its own website at http://www.webdatabasebook.com/.

You can also download the code and install it locally.

HTH.

PHP.net really is good, it has references for all the instructions, and the
manual is actually pretty good for beginners.

I had a flip through "PHP In A Nutshell" from O'Reilly Press today
and it looked pretty well-written. And covered a wide range of
topics.

Also, "The PHP Anthology" by Sitepoint Pty is getting pretty good
feedback. You can find it through http://www.sitepoint.com/ and I
think you can buy it through Amazon as well.
