PHP had an allure to me, so I decided to learn it. This book explains entry level PHP very well. You will learn PHP syntax and how to work with a database. My only complaint is it uses proceedural mysqli, I would recommend taking the Lynda course on Object Oriented MySQLi.
The most impressive part of this book is database design. I read books from libraries on database design, and this book explains normalization better than books devoted to the topic. This book will give you a good foundation on how to create a database that is normalized and ready to be used.
Larry Ullman explains things very well. If you want to start learning this book, pick up a copy.
The examples tackled in the book can be scaled up to fit anything you could imagine.
This book gave me the ability to improve my development game, and now I am creating complex systems for my clients.

On the bright side, it's probably the only book for beginners with good insights from an experienced programmer.
