    Comments about oreilly Think Perl 6:

    In my 30+ years as a student of computer languages, this is the most engaging and well-written technology book I have read. The author is undoubtedly well-versed in Perl 6 and knows how to present the material in both a highly readable and informative manner. The book includes an impressive amount of example code and thorough and engaging exercises for each topic. If you want to become proficient in Perl 6 in the minimum amount of time, and enjoy the process, this is the book for you.

    I balked at the price of the ebook before purchasing. Now I consider it a bargain.
