It can make it pretty difficult at times trying to determine whether or
not I'm about to buy a duplicate. The switch from Learning Perl Objects, References, and Modules to Intermediate Perl was another example of that
sort of annoyance.

Perhaps you should look in /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.8/pod, which from my experience, has been better than any book I've ever seen for perl. Try running `perldoc perlintro` and `perldoc perllol`. With exceptions such as "old standard" languages, most free documentation that comes with the interpreter/compiler tends to be better than any book. A print out of perl's documentation would be far more valuable than almost any perl book on the market.

Although I haven't looked much into any FreeBSD book, I wouldn't be surprised at all if FreeBSD's documentation combined with freebsd-questions would outweigh it.
