  • I actually had all of the 4 titles you mentioned in my last order from Amazon, and AFAIK many of my fellow Perl Mongers are reading titles such as: 'High Order Perl' and 'Perl Best Practices' - looking at the Perl book releases over the last years, the readers might have been starving a bit?
    • There may have been a some latent demand. I also think it speaks to the quality of these books. It's sort of like movies--if they're bad, they get a big opening weekend and that's it. Good movies continue to make money over time because of word-of-mouth.

      This new batch of Perl books hit some great sweet spots on the demand side and did so with excellent books. In many cases, people are referring to them as "must haves," especially "Perl Best Practices."
