I wish I had this book back when I first started my web site- it would have saved me a lot of time and trouble.

Really, this is much more about Perl than it is about web sites. You might say that the author uses web site related tasks to teach Perl- I really would recommend this to someone getting in to Perl even if they have no interest in building a web site. Of course, if you are doing web site content, this is even more valuable.

The writing style is conversational and easy to read. Difficult concepts are covered extremely well- for example, this has one of the best introductions to Perl modules that I have read anywhere. It also has a good introduction to the CGI.pm module, which is one I avoided for years because of the complexity of its man page. If I had this to introduce me, I wouldn't have let that intimidate me as it did.

All in all, very nicely done and highly recommended.

Many of the products and books I review are things I purchased for my own use. Some were given to me specifically for the purpose of reviewing them. I resell or can earn commissions from the sale of some of these items. Links within these pages may be affiliate links that pay me for referring you to them. That's mostly insignificant amounts of money; whenever it is not I have made my relationship plain. I also may own stock in companies mentioned here. If you have any question, please do feel free to contact me.

I am a Kerio reseller. Articles here related to Kerio products reflect my honest opinion, but I do have an obvious interest in selling those products also.

Specific links that take you to pages that allow you to purchase the item I reviewed are very likely to pay me a commission. Many of the books I review were given to me by the publishers specifically for the purpose of writing a review. These gifts and referral fees do not affect my opinions; I often give bad reviews anyway.
