I found it easy to read having personally come from Perl 5.x.
I would like to spend more time with it and applying what I learned.
I had to accept that Perl 6 is still evolving so some aspects are out of date but that likelihood is anticipated by the writers.
I am a little confused by the image shown at the time of this review: It shows "Perl 6 Essentials" whereas the text states "Perl 6 and Parrot Essentials" which is what I read. I.E. ISBN 0-596-00737-X Second edition 2004.
A later edition would be welcome - if there is one!
