This is actually a reasonable textbook. But out the horrible alliteration, the naff jokes and titles, and you actually have a book that does teach you the basics of perl very quickly. The CGI elements are rather poor and if you really want a book that will teach you substantive perl go somewhere else. If you just want to hack about with a few simple scripts though, this book is fine. I quite liked it!
