Summary: Far from ideal...
Comment: I felt this book fell into the trap that many teaching books fall into - it assumes that the reader is at the same level as the author.

Don't get me wrong, it was a *very* useful book, but it could have been a lot clearer about many of the key issues.

For a beginner - don't buy this book. For an "advanced beginner", do =D

Customer Rating: 3
Summary: Not for beginners
Comment: Apparently, this book is not for beginners. You will get lost if you try to learn perl by yourself. It may be a good reference book, I think, after I read the exhaustive listing of I/O variations.

Customer Rating: 5
Summary: great information:price ratio
Comment: I actually found this book in a bookstore while looking for Programming Perl. This book has an excellent reference section, with in-depth descriptions on everything. It is very well formatted. I don't know how good it is to learn from, but if you want a quick lookup reference this book is for you. Programming Perl provides the same information, but costs about $50.
