Too often, certain key bits of knowledge are assumed and I found that too often, my mind was about ready to explode from frustration.
I admit that I just didn't get it, whatever 'it' was.
Then I found this book. It is extremely simple, but that is what I needed to get off the ground. Just as I learned to read from books by Dr. Seuss, I learned to program from reading this book -- it got me off the ground.
Just remember that finishing this book does not make you a programmer -- its code examples are very simplified and full of security holes. On the other hand, this book will fill in the concepts that other books miss and you will finally be ready to take on the more complex books that WILL make you a programmer.
A must read.

Excellent book for learning web-based PERL applications. The examples were concisely and fairly well explained. The appendix does a good job of elaborating in more detail. Read morePublished on Dec 4 1999
A pretty good book for the beginner, but I expected more for my money. Really, more like a pamphlet than a book. Priced about twice as much as it should be.Published on Nov. 10 1999
