    Good book for an intermediate PHP programmer

    I started (and "tought" myself) PHP by looking at source code from a game

    Well, since then, I've gotten no advance. Anybody know of any good books that don't start with echo "hello world"? Thanks :-)

    Just go straight to the documentation @ php.net and look at example codes online to understand how people use the language.

    I second duniyadnd on that one. I bought O'Reiley's PHP book and it hasn't been too useful yet. I have found the online php.net documentation to be a lot better at quick look-ups and learning the language in general.

    Yikes, forums are almost too much fun.

    I use 'Professional PHP programming" From WROX.

    It doesn't start with echo 'hello world', and has some pretty good examples.

    I use PHP.net the most now. But I started with the book.
