What is a really good book for someone who wants to learn as much as they can in a short amount of time about PHP?  I know a good starting point amount of PHP to build a site using it, but I always get stuck at some point on rely on others to guide me through the rest.  Any suggestions?

    I have liked books by Wrox for instruction.  I recommend Beginning PHP5 or one a little more advanced that might also cover MySQL.  The specific book depends on your programming level and needs.
