But I had to throw links. For advertising no one would have considered, and You make willing to help to go and Google yourself.
Owner of Gutmans confused by the fact that it is 2006, the year of issue. At koterova the latest edition of 2008 year, that's better.
Gutmans not read, read koterova. He's got a lot of attention is paid to the basics. If You are familiar with php a short time or even just starting its study, the book of koterova fit. If You are already an experienced developer, I think it is better to pay attention to something more serious where the heads about syntax, loops, conditions and other foundations is omitted.
Looking at the table of contents of Gutmana, I noticed that there the basics there.
