4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Perl text, but Kindle edition needs some editor TLC 22 Aug 2012
By sinbad - Published on

I was pleasantly surprised by "Modern Perl". The basic premise is: here we are in 2011 (well, now 2012), with lots of powerful Perl 5.16 core (and CPAN) modules at our disposal. Let's actually _use_ them to write robust, consistent Perl programs.

There's significant coverage of Moose (for doing OOP in an arguably superior way), all manner of popular and useful idioms, and a rather thorough exposition of Perl language features, shortcomings, and gotchas.

In my opinion, this is not a book for beginners. The reader should already have a rudimentary grasp of Perl, and at least a small bit of experience working with it.

All in all, beautifully done content. But please enlist an editor to review the Kindle edition, guys. Too many unnecessary typos. And it looks like footnotes did not get rendered properly as footnotes, instead appearing inline with the content they're supposed to annotate. Annoying.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great introduction to a powerful language 20 Jun 2013

I'm just starting to work in Perl after working in PHP (mostly with Drupal and WordPress) for 3 years. This book offers a fantastic introduction to a language that has a lot of history and culture supporting it. The writing style makes me feel like I'm sitting in a peer session with the author, and is very easy to digest. Make sure you follow along with the instructions, there's something special about actually typing along with an author vs trying to just read and remember. Get that muscle memory down :)

Thanks for writing such a fantastic book!

Godd intermediate level book. Beginners might want to start with a book that works through more examples with them in more detail

1.0 out of 5 stars beware, no table of contents 3 Jun 2013
By A. Felson - Published on

This book is extremely difficult to navigate unless you only expect to read it from start to finish in a sequential fashion. There is no table of contents, nor is there an index. This is one of those kindle books that is too painful to bother with.
