Recommendations for a book to teach myself php and MySQL?

I have a basic "copy and paste" knowledge of php and even less knowledge of MySQL. I currently use online tutorials for specific problems. I'm hoping for a book that can start me off with basic php and then take me through more advanced lessons. Since I don't know much about MySQL, I'm also hoping that the book could help me with that.
Some of the things I wish I could master include XML parsing, PEAR requests and using php within Wordpress, Drupal or other CMS's (and a whole bunch of MySQL stuff).
I know there's plenty of online tutorials and full lessons, but I think that a book will be a better way to start for me.
