    Chistmas is coming up, and I never really want anything, so I thought I'd just as well get some feedback and see if'd actually manage to make a wish list with one or two things for once.

    So does anyone has some "must haves" that has any relation at all to PHP. I.e. either specifically for PHP or anything commonly used in combination with PHP, such as SQL, WSDL, security etc, or any books on useful generic stuff such as design principles, natural language text search or whatever.
    And a little note on why would be nice as well.

    Also, thoughts on Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture, if anyone's read it?

    Or perhaps something on web development with Java. It's been several years since I last coded java, but I'm in no need of a complete newbie approach to the subject.

    I certainly find Martin Fowler's books to be readable and applicable; good reference material.

    I guess the two PHP books I've gotten the most use out of are PHP Objects, Patterns, and Practice by Zandstra, and Essential PHP Security by Schiflett.

    Wicked Cool PHP is a good book - does not go into basics but provides quite a lot of information on how to do some tasks, I would definately recommend it

    I saw on Amazon that a book titled 'Pro PHP MVC' will be released, cant wait for that! I am not good at MVC yet, so it will help me a lot. Hopefully other programmers will like it too. XD

    You can always download a framework such as CodeIgniter (which has pretty good documentation) and play around with it, too.

    You can also download the yii framework and work around to check the flow of mvc

    Good up-to-date PHP book!

    I've been following a PHP book but all of its contents are out of date and are giving me errors and also teaching me incorrectly. Can someone tell me a updated book that is worth a read? Thanks!

    Well it's a little out of date topic but worth to mention is also the video sql tutorial. Books are fine for reading in a free time but when it comes to learning audio books/videos are much better. Just my opinion.
