    Just by buying the book should mean that they'll all get some kind of royalty

    But I've already got the Cook book and the PHP by O'Reilly issit really worth spending more money for this book as well?

    Book Codes

    Rather than copying the code from the book into php.........and as for the right "typos" in the book.............me being a novice will probably type in the wrong cone, is there anything online supporting the book whereby I can copy the code and then paste it into php.

    Title: Core PHP
    Author: Leon Atkinson and Zeev Suraski (Yes one of the creators of PHP
    What's is about:
    Chapter one covers the language in general, waht variables are, array's, funtions ect. (more advanced users can skip this)
    Chapter two is a funtion reference.
    Chapter three and four, give real live situations, and cover topics very interesting in commercial enviroments.

    I have this book and it's worth almost every penny (the first chapter is really for the novice)

    This is an odd book request. But Are there any books giving assistance for things like contracts, etc... between coders, site owners, artists, etc...? You know, so if you work on a business page for money you dont get shafted cause nothing is in paper?

    what you need is legal assistance
    most legal websites/books are already out of date when they hit the market.

    I recently purchased PHP For The World Wide Web Second Edition by Larry Ullman and I must say it is so far very well written. It is easy to understand and isn't written by someone who wants to expand their ego by making everyone else feel 'stupid'.

    The book comes along with a web site where you can get sample code etc. Also on the site is a forum where the author answers questions. You can also email him directly. Which is really great support for a book, it shows the author really has a passion for teaching and helping others learn this wonderful language

    An idiot's guide

    What is really needed is 'An Idiots Guide to PHP'.

    There are lots of excellent reference manuals out there but I am still looking for one that is aimed at someone with little to no prior knowledge.

    Perhaps that is an impossible dream?

    most of the Wrox Beginning PHP books don't require much experience at all and they walk you through some usable web-apps you can create while you're learning

    PHP and MySQL for Dynamic Websites, by Larry Ullman

    Same sort of structure etc as the one NetNerd85 described, but also includes a couple of chapters dedicated to MySQL, then integrates PHP and MySQL from then on.

    Taught me PHP in about 3 weeks, and that was with no previous scripting/programming language! Also acts as an excellent reference coupled with it's appendices at the back.

    T'is an excellent buy!

    Is there not a PHP for Dummies out yet? It might be an idea to send a letter to Wiley Publishers if not. They seem to have cornered the market with the Dummies series. Their HTML for Dummies is what got me started 4 years ago.
