    Cool recommended book for learning PHP

    Can anyone recommend to me a good book to learn PHP?

    I have been a web developer since 2004, writing in ASP until 2006 and Perl since 2006, now I am moving onto PHP.

    I bought Sams Teach Yourself PHP in Ten Minutes, and that looks good to begin with, but i'm looking for some recommendations for something more advanced to follow on from that.

    LAMP-related would probably be beneficial.

    Thanks,
    Picco
    :thumbsup:

    I clicked this thread with the intention of recommending that one too, it really is a great book.

    I'd also recommend Chris Shifflet's 'Essential PHP Security'. Both are essential reads imo.

    Thanks for the recommendation, i've read some of the reviews for this book and it does look good.

    I'm swaying towards this one.

    I really enjoyed the Sam's teach yourself PHP in 21 days. I enjoy those books when learning a new topic since it eases you into it but still has good info once you really get going.
