"...the author has done an excellent job of making sure that you will have a good idea of how to use what's available in Perl; and, how you can save yourself time and effort by using Perl and the resources available to get the job done. At the end of the day, you'll be ready to use and integrate whatever developments come down the line."
-- John Vacca, Amazon.com

"Simon Cozens notes that once you know the syntax there’s no more Perl to learn. In this book, he shares advanced techniques for applying the Perl you (mostly) already know... It’s a shame for the Perl community that Simon’s moved on to other things, but this book is a fine legacy from which the rest of us can try to live up to his standards."
--Smylers, The Perl Review, June 2005

"...if you're an intermediate Perl user, wanting to move up a notch, what you really want is a copy of this manual at your desk, and hours to spend working through the examples. It's definitely worth the time."
--DrPat, BlogCritics, August 2005

"...in some cases this book contains the best 'dead tree' explanations of some of the more complicated aspects of Perl yet to be published...I highly recommend this book for any Perl Programmer who wants to move beyond the basics of using Perl to do simple tasks and wants to learn about the way Perl is programmed today."
