Use it wisely, my son!

[ #17704 ]
The blurb of PERL from the GROUND UP [sic] reads:

Open this Book as a Novice
and Finish it as a Pro

Discussed this with richardc. Questions we thought needed answering:

  • If you start reading it as a Pro, will it immediately turn you back into a Novice?
  • Can you save time by just reading the end and become a Pro right away?
  • What happens if you read it backwards? Will it drain out all your knowledge?

I was reminded for some reason of the bit of Raiders of the Lost Ark where the spirits come out of the Ark of the Covenant and melt people's faces off. We decided in the end it was safer not to open the book at all.
