For an absolute basic book: Julie Meloni. She has two books, I own PHP 
Essentials, but I have a friend that is very, very glad she paid half the 
price for PHP Fast & Easy.

Once you get a basic grasp, Wrox press is apparently the way to go, but the 
HWG's new PHP instructor, Hank Marquardt, is going to use the php4 Bible by 
Tim Converse and Joyce Park. The book was tech edited by Richard Lynch. 
Hank and Rich are also co-founders of the Chicago PHP User's Group, so, I 
bought the PHP 4 Bible despite the reviews at amazon.com.

For on-line resources, I've found http://www.webmasterbase.com/ to have 
some very nice, thorough tutorials.
