Just do it. :)

Find a project or something you want to do and start using perl.  I have found that approach the most effective.

I have read through the "* Perl" O'Reilly books and found that helpful.  Google helps a lot when I have specific questions.  Reading the docs for the modules that I am using.

I hope this is an appropriate question for this group.
At some point in your life you didn't know Perl (that's my assumption anyway).  What book/class/mentor... helped get you from beginner to wherever you are now?

Was it a mixture of multiple influences?  Is there an indispensable Perl book that you all have on your shelves?

I'm curious because I'd like to learn more Perl but I've got serious limitations on my time.  I don't want to shortcut the learning journey but I really don't want to pick up just any old book that may lead me down the wrong path.

I guess I'd also like to know if there are materials to avoid as well.
