Relatively new as I am to Perl, I was wondering:
Before a novice and true newbies start on their journey to Perl Mastery, they must choose the right tools to help them on their journey.

But there is also the matter of books. Good old finger walking, dust collecting, pinnacles of the paper age. And so there is the question of which books are better.

I've heard good things about the O'Reilly book "Programming Perl" and of course "Perl for Dummies" but was wondering which books the true Perl disciple finds or found most useful in their journey. In short, show me the way to enlightenment and inner perl
