Books for a relative Perl newbie

I'm considering learning Perl and would like some recommendations on
what books would be good to start with.

I'm aiming to learn it for use in web programming ie mod_perl so any
books that concentrated on that would be good. Or should I just learn it
in a general way with something like Programming Perl and apply that to
my web design ideas?

If it's of any use I've learnt a bit of Perl already but only really
basic stuff.(Chapter one of Learning Perl sort of thing and that was a
while ago) I'm competant in C and C++ programming and can bash out some
VB if forced to at uni.:)
