Surprisingly Good, Surprisingly Useful

When I first saw this book I thought that someone must be kidding. There's no question that XML is clearly the language to use when you want to transfer data using the standard web communications protocols. But a book that's more than a thousand pages, get serious.

They I opened it, low and behold, links, style sheets, specialized forms of XML for specialized purposes that have been agreed upon by multiple competing companies. It turns out that there's a lot more to XML than I thought.

Then in conjunction with XML other languages have been developed, some have proved not so useful and have faded away, others have evolved and changed to be more useful.

All in all, this is a very useful book, well written and has given me some ideas about how to solve some problems. That's all you can ask out of a book.

Good for beginners

This book isn't meant for advanced PERL programmers. But it was perfect for me, at the time I bought it and read it (fall 96), it really helped out with my knowledge of perl. If there was only one thing I wished it did have more of, was more longer scripts and real-world scripts. But other than that, I thought this book mas pretty good.
