Good Book, Take it Slow!, 23 Nov 2006
This is actually a really good book but I can't help but feel that it delves into some topics very early and this can create some confusion. I purchased this book after reading the original Learning Perl book, the first chapter of intermediate perl was very tricky for me but then it did seem to make more sense as I completed chapters. Great book if you take your time! my advice, buy this book, read it slowly, read some chapters again, and dont worry too much with questions like "Why would I ever use a reference?" until you are at least onto basic object principles.
