For a great introduction to PHP, get "Teach Yourself PHP4 in 24 Hours" from 
Sams.  It's a quick read, and it gives you a good basic knowledge of 
PHP.  After that, I'd suggest the "PHP Developers Cookbook", which does a 
good job of covering some of the advanced topics, as well as giving tips on 
how to bypass some of PHP's less-known quirks.

Another good book is "MySql/PHP Database Applications" by Jay Greenspan (of 
WebMonkey).  Although slightly dated, it gives good coverage of the use of 
classes in PHP.
