Tom Phoenix

Tom Phoenix has been working in the field of education since 1982. After more than thirteen years of dissections, explosions, work with interesting animals, and high-voltage sparks during his work at a science museum, he started teaching Perl classes for Stonehenge Consulting Services, where he's worked since 1996. Since then, he has traveled to many interesting locations, so you might see him soon at a Perl Mongers' meeting. When he has time, he answers questions on Usenet's comp.lang.perl.misc and comp.lang.perl.moderated newsgroups, and contributes to the development and usefulness of Perl. Besides his work with Perl, Perl hackers, and related topics, Tom spends his time on amateur cryptography and speaking Esperanto. His home is in Portland, Oregon.

"Intermediate Perl is an excellent next step after “Learning Perl.” I’d go so far as to say that it’s a good workbook for long-time Perl programmers to use – go through the exercises at the back of each chapter and see if there’s some way you can improve your coding, or something you’re doing inefficiently. In the overwhelming sea of blue Perl books, this one provides a great set of exercises to take your development skills to the next level."
--Kirsten Jones, Princess Polymath

"If you are wanting to take Perl to the next level, Intermediate Perl is a book you want in your library."
--Amanda Tippit Chilson, inRandom

"This book, after you’ve gone through Learning Perl, should give a really good foundation for writing in object-oriented Perl."
--Liz Henry, Composite

"It's a classic text for any Perl programmer and should be in any serious computer library interested in a guide that uses basic modern applications to teach the program."
--James A. Cox, The Midwest Book Review: The Bookwatch, October 2011, Volume 6, Number 10

"A great introduction--if you're starting out in Perl, you have to buy this book. "
--Andy Hudson, Linux Format

"If you don't know the language and want to learn it, or if you know it briefly and want to improve your basic knowledge, this is the right book for you."
--Nicola Gigante, The Cattle Grid

"As an occasional Perl programmer I was enthusiastic to read Intermediate Perl and I wasn't disappointed. "
--Mike James, I Programmer

"Learning Perl is a programming library's foundation title and a highly recommended pick: it covers all the basics of what most programmers use and need to get started with Perl, and offers up a fifth edition of a classic first published in 1993. "
--James A. Cox, The Midwest Book Review - The Bookwatch

"I will have to say this book was a very good introduction into Perl (I still use it from time to time as a reference). It has really helped me in getting the basic syntax of Perl down. I would totally recommend this book to anyone that is wanting to begin the journey into programming with Perl."
--Jonathan C. Otsuka, Kansas City Perl Mongers

"As with other O'Reilly books, Intermediate Perl teaches through examples. The book builds on similar problems throughout. The examples are quick and concise. Humor and Pop references throughout make parts of the book read like a good novel. If you've used Perl before, and are interested in more advanced concepts and efficient programming, look no further."
--Michael Gimbel, Detroit Perl Mongers
