This book got me started:

It covers all the main parts of PHP5 really well with clear examples.
Its a beginners book, not advanced.

Re: Where to start

I found "PHP and MySQL WebDevelopment" by Welling and Thomson to be a
FABULOUS Book that covered these two topics from A to Z. One of the
best programming text books I've ever read.

Re: Where to start

What really helped me if you don't know much about php but you have
programmed in other languages is a book that cost 9.99. PHP 5 in easy
steps. http://www.ineasysteps.com/books/details/?184078282x . its
really kind of chesses but I found it very helpful and simple. I also
then moved to http://www.sitepoint.com/books/phpmysql1/ when I started
to programming with databases.  But I really don't like to read a lot
or big books and I love these too.

good luck
