Has anyone read: PHP and PostgreSQL Advanced Web Programming by Ewald 
Geschwinde and Hans-Juergen Schoenig yet? I'd been waiting for this book to 
come out... but would like to know if it's actually worth the $ first.

Back to the question at hand...

Personally I like PostgreSQL for a few reasons:

Ease of use
SECURITY (yeah--well what can I say.. I work for a security company 
LOL--but seriously, Postgres has more security that MySQL does... and more 
Variety of data types (for instance a CIDR block and IP data type...)
Stored procedures
Cleanup built in (vacuum)
Full Joins

But that's just me. :)
