Review of "Perl in a Nutshell" 2nd edition

[ #31901 ]
This journal entry is my working draft for eventually submitting a review as a story. My thesis is that this book is a solid addition for any Perl coder's bookshelf. Why?
-someone with experience in another language could pick this book and be productive fairly quickly
-plenty of useful code snippets
-section with usage summary for all of the standard modules
-sections on CGI gives you more than just what's in CGI.pm but form a good intro to CGI in general
