"This book, after you’ve gone through Learning Perl, should give a really good foundation for writing in object-oriented Perl."
-- Liz Henry, Composite

"If you are wanting to take Perl to the next level, Intermediate Perl is a book you want in your library."
-- Amanda Tippit Chilson, inRandom

"Intermediate Perl is an excellent next step after “Learning Perl.” I’d go so far as to say that it’s a good workbook for long-time Perl programmers to use – go through the exercises at the back of each chapter and see if there’s some way you can improve your coding, or something you’re doing inefficiently. In the overwhelming sea of blue Perl books, this one provides a great set of exercises to take your development skills to the next level."
-- Kirsten Jones, Princess Polymath

"This is an excellent book for somebody who has read and mastered Learning Perl and wants to continue with more advanced topics."
-- W. E. Mihalo, Computing Reviews, A senior high-performance computing systems engineer with the Academic and Research Technologies group within Northwestern University's Information Technologies division

"After having learned the basics in Learning Perl ("Llama book"), Intermediate Perl takes you to the next level. It is aimed at doing more serious development work (over 1000 lines of code). Hence it introduces the more advanced concepts as complex data structures, references, packages and OOP. Structure This book" " Full Review >

"When I obtained my copy of the updated Intermediate Perl from O'Reilly, I was pretty stoked. For awhile, i've really wanted to give perl another serious shot (some of my colleagues swear by it), and I figured this would be a great time to do that. " Full Review >

"Written as the followup to the "Llama book" this book introduces more advanced concepts of the Perl programming language to take you from writing simple scripts to larger programs that are split up into modules as well as contributing such modules to the community via CPAN. The concepts covered include modules, references, objects, testing and contributing to CPAN." Full Review >
