There could be so many books

I used following book of wrox publications
Beginning PHP5, Apache, MySQL WebDevelopment -- 2007 Naramore, Elizabeth

My starting point many years ago (and the author and book are still well respected to this day) is Build Your Own Database Driven Website using PHP and MySQL by Kevin Yank - http://bit.ly/v1pkS0. The Sitepoint website is a great source of information as well.
