I'm a hobbyist web developer and poor college student trying to develop a 
database-driven website with MySQL and PHP. As such, I'm looking for 
recommendations for a book that will teach me the basics (and not-so-basics). 
I've seen the Wrox books (Beginning PHP, Professional PHP) and the O'Reilly 
book (Programming PHP), but I can't decide which one to spend my hard-earned 
cash on.

Has anyone out there used both? Which was better? Or anyone had a good 
experience with one or the other?
