First, I must recommend the Perl Cookbook. It has served me very well, and is a great
resource for those of us who learn by example.

Secondly, in all seriousness, when I was just starting with Perl, I got a great deal of
value out of Perl For Dummies. I lied in my job interview about whether I knew perl, and
bought PFD on the way home. By the time work started, I was competent enough to not rock
the boat. :) (Admittedly, already being fluent in two or three other languages made that
a LOT easier)
