It spends a little time talking about Moose, but is generally more
focussed on core language features and using them in a way that is
sustainable and maintainable. I've found it useful, in the past, to
give some insight into taking advantage of more recent versions of
Perl (spent a great deal of time stuck in perl 5.8.x land, due to
previous management unwillingness to take to the time to update). It's
complementary to the Perl Best Practices book, as they have a similar
spirit, but Modern Perl is more focussed on "how to take advantage of
advances in the state of Perl."
If you want to check it out in detail, the electronic versions are
free (PDF and ePub, with Kindle and HTML formats on the way).
It's difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary
depends on him not understanding it.
