I'm surpised no one mentioned Tom Christiansen's Camel Critiques.

Camel Critiques

    That page seems rather... empty. What's supposed to be there?

    Update stupid browser had lost its fonts... Page works better now.

    While the Camel Critiques are interesting, they seem a bit dated. It reviews Camel II, but Camel III is out. Many of the books it reviews teach Perl4, yet Perl5 has been out for years and Perl5.6 is different enough that a new Camel had to be written for it. It doesn't mention Conway's book, yet many have rated it as highly as any of the others listed, etc.

    I would love for Tom to update that page with newer books.
