Thanks for starting up this new section!

Did you extend your enthusiasm up to the point to actually reading any of the reviews?

Apparently not, since the Book Reviews section has been there at least three years !

    I was mistaken thinking the section was new. But yes, I've read about two dozen of the reviews. I guess I must have been mislead by the introduction to the Reviews section (emphasis added):

    This new section is devoted to alerting your fellow monks as to what certain modules, books, conferences are good for and why. Initially I'm envisioning an area for each of the following: books, modules, and conferences. I'm sure other categories will pop up eventually but that's what we'll start with for now.

    Age of the Reviews archive, and my length of time with Perlmonks not withstanding, I believe my point is valid. It would be constructive if comments and remarks regarding my assertion were directed at supporting or refuting it, not at my locally scoped experience level nor the age of the archive.

    It would be convenient, and in keeping with common convention, for "The", when it appears as the first word of a title, to be shifted to the end of the title following a comma. It would be smart to include the book's author next to the book name in the review. And as 2nd, 3rd, and 4th editions become available, it would be nice to, at a glance, know which edition is being reviewed.

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
