I know that Ovid has a beginning Perl book coming out soon with Wrox. Now I've just seen that a new Beginning Perl book (written by Brent Michalski and James Payne) is due out in August 2012. It's to be published by John Wiley and Sons (ISBN 1118013840; 696 pages). To confuse matters, Amazon is advertising the Michalski and Payne book with the cover for Ovid's book. Am I missing something?
This is the blurb for the M & P book:
Everything beginners need to start programming with Perl. Perl is the ever-popular, flexible, open source programming language that has been called the programmers' Swiss army knife. This book introduces Perl to both new programmers and experienced ones who are looking to learn a new language. In the tradition of the popular Wrox Beginning guides, it presents the newest features, real-world examples, and everything necessary for a Perl novice to start programming with confidence. Introduces Perl to both new programmers and experienced ones who want to learn a new language. Provides a host of real-world applications for today's environments so readers can get started immediately. Covers the new features of Perl but fully applicable to previous editions. Beginning Perl provides the information and instruction you need to confidently get started with Perl.
