when i saw the glowing reviews from schwartz and christiansen on the back of the book, i figured it had to be something special. let me just say that mr. conway blew threw the perl primer (about the first 70 pages) so quickly and carelessly that i had to read it again. i found several coding errors in those first 70 pages alone. after that, i wasn't about to trust anything he said in the rest of the book, even if i COULD understand what he was talking about. if there's another object-oriented perl book out there, i need to find it NOW!!!
