in thread Perl best practices fanatism

I'm wondering if we actually read the same book. While there are many points where I decided not to follow PBP advices (e.g. Contextual::Return seems too clever dark magic IMHO), I always found that TheDamian clearly explained the why under the suggestion. Otherwise, I think that his 256 suggestions would have fit into some 20 pages, more or less.

Io ho capito... ma tu che hai detto?

    I'm glad you liked the book. I just don't like the army style.


      I just don't like the army style.
      could it be that you skipped the foreword? or that you are confusing it with a different book?
      or maybe there are two different versions out there...
