Reading and Reviewing "Perl Hacks"

[ #32122 ]

I recently received a copy of Perl Hacks in the mail from O'Reilly, as a gift for my contributions to the recent Perl calendar advent. It arrived very quickly from the time I announced my desired book - only a few days. I was told that I should post a review of the book somewhere. So I've been thinking that after I finish reading it, I'll write one review and publish it on several places. Places I have in mind at the moment:

I'm open for other suggestions. I started reading the book, and so far it seems like a fun book. I think I'm already at the third chapter.

  • Despite the expected deluge of foolish comments, Slashdot is a wonderful place to publish book reviews. That's the most effective way I've found to reach a wide audience (as measured by book sales and referrals).

    • Well Slashdot's book reviews tend to be lengthy and comprehensive, while my reviews tend to be short and laconic. They also publish only one review per book (if at all). I can try publishing my review there, but don't get your hopes up.

      • All of the authors very much appreciate any review you or anyone else publishes, anywhere. Thank you!
