Well, I don't know a good book, but there are a lot of good resources available on the net. The one I like the most is w3schools.com. The php tutorial is located right here.

If you already marginally know your way around an OO language (C++, Java), the book "A Programmer's Introduction to PHP" by Gilmore is a great book.

Skips all of the stuff you already know from other languages or contrasts them if they are different.

www.php.net. Click documentation->english. Function reference. That's how I learned PHP (that and some quick tutorials on www.w3schools.com)

Check out "Learning PHP 5" by David Sklar, published by O'Rielly. Its a nice blend between introductory level stuff, and more advanced stuff like file uploading, etc. Its a nice blend between the beginner's stuff, and material you'll find useful once you've gotten a handle PHP's feel.

That said, you can also check out http://www.devshed.net and take a peek at their PHP tutorials, many of which I have found very useful myself. Don't forget, you can learn tons of information from the documentation, so don't be afraid to dive into it and start doing some searching.

Sams Teach Yourself PHP in 24 Hours
by Matt Zandstra

That's the book that taught me PHP... and some of my friends in college...
But that's just to get you into it... after a while you'll need to do more stuff and with the help of php.net you'll learn more on your own...
Oh... and I code PHP for a living now (I never get tired of saying that, I love PHP)
