Well, I spoke up for ya (sort of). Mentioned that everyone was off
topic...and that I still haven't read the book.

Yeah. It was on the front page yesterday. This certainly fits under
the "any exposure is good exposure". I thought the review was
vague and fluffy, even though the guy cited page numbers. No attempt
was made to outline the contents of the book or compare it to any
other Perl book. I was hoping Michael or one of the other countless
people who got a review copy and is far more able to write a
review would have gotten one in first, but, again, any exposure...
This reviewer also failed to mention http://perl6now.com, but maybe
that's a good thing ;)
