The "Web Services" book I've been waiting for,
This review is from: Programming Web Services with Perl (Paperback)
Some time ago, I purchased a different book: "Programming Web Services With SOAP" (ASIN: 0596000952), and my feeling - and that of many others - is that it was very weak. A decent view from 30,000 feet, but it was not very helpful to a perl developer thrown kicking and screaming into a project requiring XML and the use of SOAP::Lite. "Disappointment" was the best way to describe it.
But *THIS* is the book that the other one should have been - it's fantastic. It is chock-full of real live examples *with code*, the introductory and explanatory material is excellent, and the writing style is simply a joy to read.
In particular, the reference material for SOAP::Lite is very much welcome: it was written by the author of the code.
Five very glowing stars for this book.

Checking out the reviews for this book to help me decide whether it will be worth it or not, I was heartened to see Stephen weigh in, since I know and respect his opinion. If Steve says a tech book is "fantastic", that's good enough for me. Time to place an order.
