Even better than the last edition


Like the previous version, this is even better written. For starters to PL/SQL I recommend PL/SQL 101 and this.

Great work Scott Urman.

An essential desktop Perl reference


After reading the first four chapters, I decided to return the book. The more I read the book, the more frustrated I became. The flow of the book was very poorly designed. It has many catch-22 scenarios, that is, when you look up explanation of concept A, it assumes you know concept B fluently; and when explaining concept B, it assumes you know concept A. It spends very little explanation and no examples on difficult concepts and terminology, but elaborates liberally on simple concepts such as "switch". The typos are unbelievable and they seem to happen at the right place at the right time. For example, I was puzzled by the sentence "You can use the next method to see the random number generator". I said to myslef what is to see about the generator, must be something really special to Perl. Of course, it turns out that it is "seed" not "see". I quite after the first four chapters. The book may be excellent from chapter 5 on, but the first four chapters are convincing enough for me to get my hard earn money back.

Easy to understand, easy to practice and enjoyable


I found the book very easy to understand and practice in your projects, it is not a theoretical book, in contrast all advices are practical and got from real experience. You still have to read other books about team dynamics.
This book is a must have book for any team leader or project manager.

Marty takes you from start to finish with this book


This book is very well written, the author does a fine of defining exactly the different level of programming involved in Web developement. As a fellow developer and programmer, I would like to say this book is a must have for the WEB DEVELOPER .
