+A fellow Perl programmer bought me this book as a birthday present from my wishlist because I put it there out of wishing to read the followup
+to the previous book in the series which I enjoyed. However, this book failed
+to meet my expectations, and I found it disappointing.
+It does not have the same focus on topics that interest me and instead
+many different topics. While not being completely bad, it fails to live up
+to the promise of the previous book, and I cannot really recommend it. The
+book is also showing its age.
+The book page on used to contain a single 3-star review for
+<i>More Programming Pearls</i> which kinda summarises my feelings.
