I'm a beginner in this subject. Can anybody recommend a good book that goes straight to the point giving examples and how to do things rather than having to read 5-10 pages to know what <?php phpinfo()?> does.
As far as a pure SQL book that is good I have no idea. The textbook for SQL and relational database programming that I used in class was one of the most complicated books I have ever read. Here it is in case you are curious: http://www.amazon.com/Database-Manag...4796706&sr=1-2
The book I bought was PHP and MySQL Web Development. I went through this book in about a week, I ended up making a little forum type website. If your not trying to do web development, this book is still a good source for writing php/mysql scripts.
