This is a great book for beginners. It has tons of real world examples too.

The manual of phpbb was clear enough for me to learn php.

I personally have the PHP Cookbook from O'Reilly, its handy, but as ever with O'Reilly, a little over technical for the beginners..

Again as has been said twice now.. The manual is superbly written, although not quite all encompassing (when you get more advanced you will get to know what I mean), its especially good for the beginners, but thats the beauty of open-source you can jump onto their Mailing list and discuss out any problems there.. Instead of having to go through mindless waves of call centers before never actually getting to anyone that knows what they are talking about..

I would also recommend the tutorials on http://www.w3schools.com They are a great resource bank and one that I still use today for learning the basics of a new language, (its the first site I check for tutorials etc..)

Anyway.. Enjoy.. Yawnster
