What is a good beginners programming book for PHP? I like "dead trees" more than reading stuff on my screen, so I am looking for a book.




I've purchased and read literally scores of programming books and all have value. In fact, I've never read a book that I didn't learn something from.

However, IMO the best thing to learn in the beginning is that php does not live in a vacuum. It is a server-side programming language that cannot function to it's fullest without other languages.

As such, the best book I've read lately has been "PHP, MySQL & Javascript" by Nixon published by O'Reilly. You can buy it on Amazon for less than $27.00 and it's well worth the price.
