Browsing in a bookshop this lunchtime I came across a new Perl book that I'd never heard of. It's called Perl Power!: The Comprehensive Guide
I looked to see how good it was, but didn't get past the bibliography. It had a pretty good list of other books, but I was surprised to see that it recommended the second edition of the Llama and the first edition of the Cookbook. I double-checked the publication date, but it was definitely published this year.
If the publisher or author didn't know enough about Perl to realise that staple Perl books have been updated this millennium, then that doesn't really give me too much confidence in the rest of the book.
I've emailed the publisher. I'll let you know if I get a response.
