Does a bear ... oh .. heh..
Ok, so books. I'm happy to see you interested in best practices and
pitfalls and I'm hoping that includes security. With that in mind, I
can recommend two such books that I have found to be excellent.
Essential PHP Security by Chris Shiflett (ISBN 059600656X)
This is a small book (about 100 pages) but purely covers security.
Not too bad for a quick security intro complete with common pitfalls.
Pro PHP Security by Chris Snyder and Michael Southwell (ISBN 1590595084)
This is a much more in-depth book that covers most of the common
security issues in-depth. Another excellent read.
