I'm looking for some recommendations for PHP/ MYSQL books that are aimed at the beginner. I'm considering purchasing one of these (http://www.amazon.co.uk/PHP-MySQL-Dynamic-Web-Sites/dp/032152599X/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1306405582&sr=8-2) two (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Learning-MySQL-JavaScript-Step-Step/dp/0596157134/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1306323808&sr=8-1). But are their any others I should be aware of?

I personally have read both these books and the first is quite basic but it gives you some good tutorials to work through. The O'Reilly book though is probably the best giving you a step by step walkthrough and taking you a lot further than the first book, I would recommend the O'Reilly book. It will not leave you coding basic PHP unlike the first.
