Any advice on the best idiots guide manual (and I mean "idiot") for MySQL, please?
I think it is something that I am going to need:-))

an excellent PDF tutorial for PHP and MySQL. It's yours for the asking - just email me and I'll send you a copy.

I wonder if I could have a copy of the PDF - I'm looking to learn PHP & MySQL in the near future.

that I didn't write the guide, and if you use it you must do so on the strict understanding that I'm not responsible for any errors and omissions in the text, or for any consequences of following the advice given therein.

Having said that, I think newcomers to PHP and MySQL will find it very helpful.
