I would like to comment that the portion of the book on persistance and relational databases is very well done. This would allow someone who is familiar already with databases to quickly use Perl to make modifications to their database. When I was learning DBI/DBD I had a bit of a hard time finding useful examples. I would recomend this book to DBA's who are looking to expand their knowledge of Perl and possibly use it to assist them in doing their jobs. While this book is not an exhaustive book on DBI(there are other books for that "Programming the Perl DBI" is good for focusing on DBI) if a DBA had to choose one book between the two this book would allow them to get to work with database access as well as introduction to the other powerful things that Perl can do.
