This node is being voted down and in fact made it on the Worst Nodes
list for today, probably because kommesel
said he liked it better than the Holy Camel Book. What gives folks? A new user took some time to write a review (albeit brief) of a book he found useful. That sounds worthwhile to me. He even prefaced his review by telling us he's not a programmer or perl geek so we know what context to read his review in. If you disagree with his review then writing about why you do or do not like the book in a comment is far more constructive and helpful to the Monastery
than voting down the node. A negative vote doesn't tell us WHY you don't like or what's wrong with it. All the folks who voted this node down should go to the Confession Booth
