+What is Modern Perl?
+--------------------
+
+Perl is a popular, powerful, and widely used programming language. Over its
+twenty year lifespan, it's powered millions of systems worldwide, moving
+trillions of dollars. More importantly, it's helped countless people get their
+work done effectively.
+
+The Perl community has a reputation for clever solutions -- and a reputation
+for institutional knowledge that isn't always clear to novices and neophytes.
+Modern Perl, written with this knowledge, can be very clean, very maintainable,
+and even more powerful than you imagine.
+
+That knowledge should be available to everyone. This book will teach you how
+to program Perl, but it will also teach you how to *think* about Perl, so that
+you can use it to your full advantage.
