Although I obviously agree (++) about the Camel book (Programming Perl
), a truly excellent book and a "must have" at some point, I beg to disagree with the recommendation. First, the Camel book is a reference book, not really a book for beginners (even though there is a real pedagogical effort in it).
And then, even if you have the Camel book, it's really good to use several books, written by different authors or at least for different audiences or purposes, because it gives you the chance to see different ways of doing things. Where different good books do things the same way, you probably have a good practice; where they differ, you probably witness a case of TIMTOWTDI. In both case, you learn something useful.
In the longer run, I would probably recommend half a dozen books or even more.
