* Object Oriented Perl - Damian Conway (out of print?)

Must have for understanding how OO perl really works.

* Effective Perl Programming - Hall, Schwartz

Great tips and tricks. I learned what a "Schwartzian transform" was.

* Writing Apache Modules with Perl and C - Stein, MacEachern

If you are going to interface with Apache, this is a must. It also taught me 
how C and Perl can work side-by-side.
