Have you read "recipe" books for other languages? If so -- how do you think the Perl Cookbook compares to others? What do you think are the strengths and weaknesses of the Perl Cookbook?
I haven't really gotten a whole lot of value out of "recipe" programming books in the past, in most cases. The one book that offers a pseudo-recipe approach to what it does that I've found really instructive was Gregory T. Brown's Ruby Best Practices, and that's probably largely because it's only sorta a "recipe" book. I wonder if the Perl Cookbook would actually do me much good.
