I've accumulated 5 or 6 books on Perl by this time, mostly very good, but a couple were quite bad to say the least, so I've decided to be more selective and do a little more research before I spend any of my hard-earned cash from now on (reading these book reviews, looking at the publishers website, authors background, etc.)
After a bit of research I bought this book last week, I'm just sorry that I didn't buy it months ago. I like the style that it's written in, and it's chock-a-block full of useful information. I've been writing Perl (hacking at it really) for about six months now, and this is just the sort of stuff that I need to improve my skills. And I find it's really geared towards the sort of work I do. I've already recommended this to my fellow work-mates (high praise indeed!) in the hopes that they wont be robbing (sorry...borrowing!) my copy all the time!
Brilliant book, in my opinion essential for any Perl library!
