3.0 out of 5 stars
Its a good book, 10 July 2011
This book is ok for perl beginers. It was able to address some of the most basic and critical topics one needs to know before delving into the crux of more complex codes. But it has failed to address a more pragmatic side of perl by not elaborating with more examples and answers part of the exercise, even though there were not enough examples to inject that confidence you need, If you really want to learn perl, having a copy of this book with perl by example by Ellie quigley are just the basic books you need to start.
