That reminds me that I was going to do a review of "The Unix
Defenestration Guide" over the hols and post it to London.pm.
I haven't done it yet, but I guess I'll post it here first :-)
Book reviews would be useful though -- Tom Christiansen's reviews page
seems to be dormant so new views of new books would be v.useful.

But here's my Perl favourites.
* Programming Perl (1st ed.) the best computer book since ... K&R's CPL,
and The Elements of Programming Style.
* Programming Perl (2nd ed.) lost much of the wit, humour and usability
of the 1st ed. Much more reference material, duplication the on-line
* Object Oriented Perl, the best book since Programming Perl 1st ed.
* Network Programming with Perl, is complete and well written, but just
like Stevens' "Unix Network Programming" with Perl instead of C.
... that's all the Perl books I hold an opinion on at the moment.
