i'm looking to a book for learning PHP .
i'm founded "PHP and MySQL develop 4th Edition" by Luke Welling
but it publish in 2009 ( PHP 5.2 ). And now PHP version are 5.4 and it has much improve so much.
and what 's best book for learning PHP 5.4?
PHP 5.4 und MySQL 5.5 (Hardcover)
PHP 5.4.7 (Current stable) [Download] - Learn by doing.
There isn't a dramatic difference in minor version updates for PHP (or any other language). You can use the book you have to learn PHP5 and pick up the differences in updates through the version release notes on PHP.net.
I agree. Use the book that you have and learn by doing.
Try by making small programs first.
