I need a groan rating on the phrase "Perl: The Next Generation".
I'm sorry to say: Vogon Poetry. There are too many NextGen projects. Besides, if you want to get a good rise of out the typical Perl audience, I suggest: Perl NT (New Technology). Microsoft seems to be done with the phrase. :-)

(Don't worry, I'm not looking for a new name for the Perl 6 project, just a tagline for a book.)
Unless it comes with a boobatious Counsellor Troi who can save the perl generation with her empathic skills I'd say it's hackneyed even around computer geeks.
How about 'Leave it to Perl' and I'll let you guess who gets to play 'the beav' :)
Unless it's The Next Generation of Perl, it's worse than putting a goat on the cover! Now if you could talk them into something like Perl for the Next Twenty Years, that might work better.
My vote's on "The Community's Rewrite of Perl".
