php books advice

edited December 2005 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I feel rather stupid not to have a decent background in php. I know I can handle most basics, but things like OO programming are still a mystery to me. Maybe some of you can advice some good books that are not too hard for a relative beginner but goes into enough depth as well. Or: what took you from beginner to more advanced? Preferably something that touches upon php5.

    I learned php on my own, so I don't have any books for you. But I highly recommend They have the best documentation out there for PHP imho. I use it daily still after a few years of doing php development on and off.
