Sams teach your self php is great! Reasonable priced. It is a very good learn by example book, touches on all bases that need to be touched on and shows you how they all interact in the bigger picture. Not to found of the oriely books myself. I would go to your local books store and read though the first chapter of each book. It is very important that you find an author you can read easily. It makes all the difference in the world trying to learn something new. Read less, learn more. Php books is a good quick start, but not as in-depth as I would like.

With very little programming experience under my belt, I found the tutorial here - http://www.mysql.com/articles/ddws/ - to be extremely useful. Doesn't get very advanced, but explained the basics better then I had seen elsewhere.
