One of the best things about this book is the seamless and concise way the author incorporates terminology into her explanations. She understands the intermediate user: someone who would be bored by a beginner's guide, but isn't ready to step up to heavy-hitting programming texts, either. She explains basic concepts within the text, so there's no need to flip back to the glossary. Readers should be familiar with HTML. Anyone trying to get a grasp on Perl will appreciate Castro's straightforward technique. Her granular, logical way of building knowledge will get new Perl users started. More experienced users will want to use this book as a workbook and refresher. Taking a visual approach, this guide uses ample screen stills. Website forum available to ask questions.
