Great if you already know mod-perl,

This review is from: mod_perl 2 User's Guide (Paperback)
This book seems to be written for the choir.
I have no doubt that the authors are knowledgable. Perhaps too knowledgable to remember what it's like to approach this topic for the first time.
Little things like taking for granted that you will have a variable "$r" on which everything else you do will hinge. Um, where in the dickens did that little puppy come from?
The information is in the book. Alas, it was a pretty hard dig for me. If you're into the *nix culture it will be an easier read, but for the uninitiated masses like me it's likely to be a bit of a challenge.
That said, this book is the only game in town if you want to tap a really sweet tool to speed your server-side includes -- or about anything you script in Perl.
