Arrow PHP Books

In your opinion, what is the best book for learning PHP for beginners? I bought PHP and MySQL Web Development by Luke Welling and Laura Thompson. What is your favorite back and what experiences have you had?

amm ive read all of the php books in our php section. im a bit of a php nerd now that i've created the php version of web edit professional (http://www.webedpro.com). We're just testing it now but should be live by friday

I love php and i've chosen it as my main language over ASP and C#. So much power and cross platform, gui-capable. i love it.

I picked up php from "professional php programming" from wrox press and highly recommend it. It now acts as a good reference.

Talking

I would recommend either or Wrox PHP books. If you have used any ASP, C, and perl I would get the perfessional version. Else get the beginners. Both cover about the same amount of info but the PHP Pro adds a few extra chapters and also leave a few beginner based ones off.
