This is not a precisely on-topic answer, but: 1) Whichever book you pick, don't make it your last or only resource, and don't become a PHP-only developer. The PHP community has a real problem, in that so much of the existing work is authored for those with little experience and often written by people with only moderate experience that bad habits are rampant and even good habits are practiced with a kind of cargo cult mentality. 2) I know PHP has some advantages that make it convenient. I have trouble getting away from it myself. It's probably essential for a web developer to know to some extent. But you might consider picking another language to learn your real skills in. > "PHP and MySQL Web Development" by Luke Welling and Laura Thompson I'd love to hear that it's an exception to the problems I mentioned above. _______________________________________________ Do not post admin requests to the list.
