Summary: Awesome
Comment: This book is a very quick and organized way to get up and going in Perl. By the end of day 7 (day seven will take more than a day if you do it right) you will have a good Perl foundation.

I have the Camel book that I go to from time to time (Camel has more humor and more technical content), but I use this book as my primary reference because of it's easy layout.

If you serious about Perl, also buy the Camel book as a deeper secondary reference.

Summary: Better organized that Larry's famous book
Comment: This book is better organized than Larry's famous book and it is easier to find information in it.

It is a great reference work and tutorial.

Summary: Covers material, but better know programming.
Comment: The first impression is the large number of typos in the code. It seems to work well for teaching 'what' works in Perl, but totally skips any 'why' structure. It comes off as an infinite number of special exceptions. Some advice, such as in the Pattern Matching chapter is just plan wrong. Seems to have slipped out without being editted.
