Learning Perl, is one hell of a great book.

If you don't know any programming languages, you'll probably still learn enough to learn more. If you know one or are just rusty, you'll find the rest in the manual pages. I checked it out sometime ago to brush up on Perl syntax after a long time of using other languages, and found the llama book both useful and entertaining. Thanks to the speed at which I could pick up the missing points from the book, Perl quickly became a best friend in my tool kit after reading it all.

It is a must read IMHO for any one working with the Perl language, and deserves a place on the bookshelf if you can afford a copy.
