SAMS PHP and Postgresql Advanced programming
by Geshwinde and Schonig will fit the bill

The title is misleading as it has it has all the usual boiler plate 
about normalisation, 'hello world' in php, which I think could have 
have been left out. These things are important, but every book I buy 
seems to include them to up the page count, and a soup to nuts 
approach to rdbms, relational theory, php structures,regex and 
object orientation is a pretty tricky task, and it leaves less room for 
 the advanced stuff.
There is also a big overlap with their earlier sams book, the pg 
developers handbook. As I had that already, maybe this coloured 
my opinion.
It would get 7 or 8 out of 10 if somebody asked me to rate it.
cheers
