View Full Version : Recommend a Learning Book - PHP/MYSQL

Can anyone recommend a good book for newbie to PHP to learn about PHP and more advanced PHP and MYSQL so afterwards I have the knowledge to build myself a complete CMS. Not an ebook and one which I can buy in the UK. I need a book which goes into complicated scripts but starts off with a newbies guide

Newbies guide + more advanced later on

You can find this one used on ebay or amazon. I recommend it because
since it's not extremely new, it can be found used for cheap:

PHP for Dummies....aaaah yeah. Actually it's not that bad. I got more out of the Lynda.com videos though.
