I believe this book does a really solid job of laying out the fundamentals - particularly in regard to security and data integrity. Be careful, though, as the scripts included are at times buggy and websites referred to often do not exist, do not load, or have been moved. (Smarty & safeHTML to name a couple.)
Sadly, I have not yet found where we can report errata for this book and I don't see where a user can check for updated information. Perhaps there are other books which do a little better job of keeping readers up to date.

I was wondering if you could help me. I really want to learn how to write these PHP classes, but I don't know where to start. Can you recommend a book or a website that can help me? Or something? I've been using PHP for about 2 years now, so I'm not a beginner but I can't seem to grasp how to write classes. Thanks.
