Topic: Begeiners book for PHP/mysql

Hi there,

I am badly wanting to learn PHP so that I can convert my static HTML pages. It is simply too much of a shore to go through dozens of pages to chnage one entry on the menu. I used to use frames to avoid that, but now obviously frames are out.

PhP will allow me to create on single page for the "menu" and insert it into every page, coprrect?

Are sever side includes a better choice?

Well, in any event I would like to know what a good beginners book is for a non-programmer such as me.
