in thread Perl best practices fanatism
That's why I originally avoided the book, my opinion based only on the title. I later picked it up based on monk recommendations, and it turned out to be much better than I expected.
It wasn't do this, do that; It was "most do this, here's why. This is contentious, and some people do that, it's important to make a choice and be consistent." I don't follow everything in PBP, but I learned a fair amount from it and it make me examine my own practices.
