BY FAR the best book I've read too :D
I've tried reading SitePoint's books, 24 hour books, etc... but I just couldn't really GET INTO those books. The book "PHP and MySQL Web Development" (3rd edition - deals with PHP 5) was really good! I like the fact that they have SEVERAL chapters (complete chapters) building SOLID applications... they might not be the BEST applications you'll build - but they're great for teaching you HOW to do it and WHY you have to do certain things certain ways...
It's the first book, out of over 10 I've purchased, that I've actually READ more than halfway and I even completed that one too!
