Format: Paperback
This book is great for the beginning programmer who has never programmed before. Young teens around 15 years of age can be a programmer with this book. Perl can be easy to learn if taught the right way and this book does. For instance, I took a Perl online class, after the third week I was lost and just dropped it. It was because of the way it was being taught. The instructor was using upper level math for all the assignments and instructions. This book uses building games as the foundation to learn, same programming language but taught in a way that can be understood so you don't have to learn calculus at the same time...thumbs up...children as young as 15 and up can and should get this book. Start young bright future...

This book is definitely for the absolute beginner. It lays a good foundation about the basics of Perl. The author goes through a few major examples and provides the sample code while he explains each. However, the author then reprints the entire script. This to me is overkill and wastes pages that could have been used for discussing additional material, or covering the provided material more deeply. There isn't much information in the book since most of it contains reprints of entire scripts and many many screen shots. This book would be good for a young teen who is interested in learning a programming language.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I used this book for a class in Perl. It came in handy a few times, outside of my (and probably everyone's) increased use of the web to answer programming questions. But the sprinkling of errors through the book and the index being shifted so that everything is off by a page or two is a perfect example of the sham that's behind many 'new edition' books in the textbook realm. It's frustrating that I was forced to buy this.
