Although this book is not the last book anyone interested in any of the topics will probably buy, it certainly will allow developers not familiar with the technologies to get a good grasp of the subjects, and more importantly, put it all together from beginning to end. I think that is probably the most important aspect of this book.
Armed with only this book, since everything covered are open source technologies, a user could dive deeper into any subject with just web searches. So maybe it is the last book someone would buy on the LAMP stack.
But, I am very pleased with the way I was able to purchase this text
at such an affordable price.
I am a single mother who desires to continue her studies independently.
While currently most of the world is chasing behind other less efficient and less flexible languages like Java and Python, the author has done a great job in writing such a detailed book on Perl. The author has again compelled me to say that Perl rules in Web Development. All Perl lovers, please grab a copy and believe me, you will not regret. I have already included this in my best set of Perl books.
This won't help much if your dealing with the recent releases but would be useful as a reference for those items that hadn't changed with release 3.0 and beyond.
