Hey everyone.

I am looking to get some books to help further my education on web development. The difficult thing is finding one that suits me. I know the "basics" of programming (strings, lists, arrays, variables, classes, functions, etc) and so a book that is three-quarters full of basic programming would just be a waste of my money. What I am more interested in are examples and topics like security or sessions. A book that shows what PHP can do and how it is used on websites. If anyone has any suggestions I would really appreciate it. Thanks!

PHP Cookbook (Amazon) Is a good start since it's less "Here's how to program in PHP" and more "You know how to program here are some nifty 'recipes' that you can use to build stuff with PHP" It is actually extremely comprehensive it covers everything from building basic forms to full-on AJAX applications with a robust backend


One of my favorite programming books of all time is PHP and MySQL Web Development by Luke Welling and Laura Thompson
