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
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).
