+A fellow Perl programmer bought me this book as a birthday present from my
+Amazon.com 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.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+It does not have the same focus on topics that interest me and instead
+contains
+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.

+<p>
+The book page on Amazon.com used to contain a single 3-star review for
+<i>More Programming Pearls</i> which kinda summarises my feelings.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
