By far, the best php book you can read is the manual.

[a href=\"http://www.php.net/manual/en/\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.php.net/manual/en/[/a]

And, it's free.

Pick a project that you want to code, start on it. Do internet searches, ask questions on the forum, and read the manual...you will learn more from that project that you will from 100 books.

Beat me to the question! I too am looking for a php book... Had the thought while i was in Barn&Noble to kill some time.. All their books are 45-60 dollars and i figured I'd just buy one online so i know it's a good/well recommended book.

Aside from a well written PHP book, i'm also interested in a book that also delves into PHP security as well. I've heard a lot of books out there completely skip the element of security... A shame really.

So lets get some recommendations! :-)

I really want something hardcopy without just printing out the online manual. Maybe I'm crazy but oh well. I also need something to read while away from a computer.
