I'd recommend this book:

http://www.amazon.com/Build-Database-Driven-Using-MySQL/dp/0...

It assumes you are comfortable with basic HTML and text editing, and nothing more. In the process of building a basic CMS, you cover pretty much everything you need to know to build whatever you really want to build, as far as the language goes.
