Hi,

I have searched all over google to find a best book for PHP, and feel lost cause a lot of reference, and I can't even try different books at a time. I want to purchase a book on PHP which covers database, it should have a good availability in market, which guides any concept through examples, that used simple language and explain a topic in less words but in efficient manner. Whose contents start from a beginner/ low level and end up at advance/ high level. Can you please suggest me such a good book you know.

Thanks in advance.

Personally I think wileys php for dummies is great.
As a tip if they use <? and ?> (short tags)
instead of <?PHP and ?> (full tags)
don't read it, it will confuse you alot later
