I bought this book more for review purposes, to get my skills in Perl back to what they should be, so that I could take them further. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the author covered more detail than expected when he wrote this book. His examples and the way he explains things makes understanding each topic all that much easier. I am still reading the book, but I have learned more little obscure things that other Perl books designed for beginners just don't cover. The author has done a fantastic job of giving you a very solid grounding in the Perl language so that you can take the knowledge he has shared and go further. His coverage of modern Perl topics, as well as great in-depth coverage of "must-learn" areas, makes this the new must have book in everyone's Perl bookshelf. If you have no other book in your library, you need to have this one. Without a doubt, this is the new bible for the Perl language.
