Sams Teach Yourself Perl in 24 Hours teaches readers new to Perl the necessary basics of Perl and then shows them how to apply that knowledge in real-world Web development.

The book is divided into three sections:

The first third of the book teaches the basics of the Perl language.The second third of the book builds on this foundation, and shows the reader how to interact with the file system, operating system, and network.The last third of the book focuses on Web development.It begins with the basics of CGI and then moves quickly into building common Web solutions such as data collection, multi-page forms, e-mail forms, and using Perl as a Web templating system.
As someone that knew very little about computer programming bar some Fortran classes about 15 years ago, this is a great book. It takes you step by step through the aspects of Perl and explains the different computer language terminology to idiots like myself (e.g. arrays, scalers etc).

However, one thing I would say is that each chapter is not one hour.

If you work on each one properly (take notes, do the exercises etc) its more like 2 hours per chapter.
Perl is probably one of the best languages to learn if you just want to have a programming language in your toolkit and this book is a great resource for learning Perl.
If you're new to programming Perl introduces many of the concepts that you'll need to master while allowing a lot of flexibility.
I don't know if 24 hours is quite enough to complete this book, but the short focused lessons make learning fun.
Most of the reviews on this website state the book comes with a VERY helpful documentation and reference CD. THIS IS NOT TRUE.

I am posting this review before having read the book to warn all of you potential buyers about this issue. I am a very visual learner and do best when working with examples.
I found this book in a local library and enjoyed reading the first chapter or so there. I decided it was one that I needed, so I ordered it while sitting in the library. I haven't been disappointed. The book arrived quickly, and was in wonderful condition for a used book.
You have to really be a fast reader and typist and be able to absorb info fast to imagine that you can run through this book in 24 hours. There are 24 chapters, each of which is supposed to take an hour.

Aside from that, it is pretty good information and well organized. But don't set your stopwatch.
Not supper
If you are looking to get started right away. This is the one. This is short and concise. It also goes into various uses of Perl, you will be start writing as you read this book. You can go through this book with in a week. It took me 5 days to finish it. Also, having the ActivePerl CD in the book is plus. Only thing is that now you need to find a book that is more intermediate.
This book is good for two kinds of people -- people who need an introductory text to Perl (especially if they don't have a strong programming background already); and people who are doing CGI programming. (Of course, you could happen to be both kind of person at once -- a not-advanced programmer picking up Perl to do some CGI programming.) No other Perl book I've seen so far manages to serve both audiences so well.
The part of the book (the first 3/5ths or so) that's intro to general Perl is good, clear, and free of any typos I've noticed. The current printing I saw tended to scrimp on whitespace (so you see "$x=$y*stuff($z)" instead of somehting more like "$x = $y * stuff($z)"), but I don't think it's /too/ much of a problem; and I've emailed the author and he says he'll see about getting that changed in later printings.
The section on CGI is the real windfall here. I'm sure that the author could have just banged out a chapter or two of "Hello World" CGIs plus a form2mail and a guestbook, and called that it; and the book would probably have sold just as well from casual buyers.
Instead, he ended up writing the absolute best and most careful discussion of CGI I've seen to date. Most importantly, if you're a new-to-CGI programmer and you read this book, I think it'll steer you clear of the nastier pitfalls better than any other book I've seen. That includes things that work but that open security holes, as well as things that just don't work.
And, incidentally, the book doesn't cost much, so I can recommend that even an advanced CGI programmer (even one not coding in Perl!) go and plunk down the ~$20, just because the long (about 2/5ths of the book, it seems) and deliberate section on CGI is bound to discuss /something/ you didn't know. I, for example, particularly benefited from the comprehensive and patient discussion of the benefits and limitations of the various ways to pass session-state around between CGI program instances.
