Are these Perl Textbooks Good? Can't Post

Hello New to the forum. Have a simple question. I going to make an effort and learn Perl. I tend toward using text books rather than the internet. Are these books any good? I'm aware you have to be careful as some books/websites teach bad practices. Learning Perl 6th Edition(ISBN: 1449303587) Intermediate Perl(ISBN: 1449393098) Mastering Perl(ISBN: 144939311X) It's a series teaching Perl. Perl is now at 5.24, but the book covers 5.14. Is there that much of a difference? Would purchasing the book be a bad choice?

Those are some of the best perl books.

Another good book is Modern Perl by chromatic http://onyxneon.com/books/modern_perl/
Besides being in book form, it's also available to read online and in pdf download (both are free).

I fully agree with FishMonger, these three O'Reilly books are very good books. Start with Learning Perl.

The book suggested by FishMonger, Modern Perl , by chromatic (Onyx Neon Press), is also very good.

Another very good book for beginners is Curtis "Ovid" Poe's Beginning Perl (Wrox).
