I know this is blasophmy, but I've never found the Camel and Llama books all that helpful. I've yet to read every single page in them.
Your best chance to learn is to find an online tutorial or two. Understand how perl deals with variables (i.e. the difference between $foo @foo %foo &foo) and program control (i.e. if while for foreach sub).

Best of Luck
