Default Book recommendations, Web Development

I'm looking for a book (or two cheap ones) for my brother-in-law for Christmas. He runs a small computer company that's been doing MS based solutions, but wants to migrate to doing Linux based Web work. What would you recommend?

What I have in mind would be something covering the sort of ground that _Web Development with Apache and Perl_ by Theo Peterson seems to from it's TOC, but I'm concerned that it is now too dated: maybe Apache configurations have changed or the Perl modules and frameworks he uses have been superseded. Maybe this is too much to do in one book, too.

I'm now thinking these two books:

Web Design in a Nutshell, 3Ed
Learning Perl, 5Ed

Either that or get him one piece of the puzzle, like David Flanagan's Javascript book or Kennedy and Musciano's HTML book.
