What people are saying ...

Chapter 8's code walk-thru of is quite good. Kudos to whoever came up with the idea to dedicate a chapter to discussing a production application.

I've only read chs 8 and 10, but it looks like this book is going to be perfect for turning my novice-intermediate Perl developers into Mason gurus.

I'd just like to thank the Mason team for the very excellent Mason book. In the last 2 or 3 days my facility with the system has gone through a step change. I've now got things inheriting up and down the content chain (and it all makes sense too!), I've been replacing all kinds of ugly hacks with elegant idioms, and I just feel much more in control of what's going on. It's fun!

Have just recieved my book from Amazon. I thought I knew a reasonable amount about Mason integration until I read it. Now I realise that I know nothing, lots of late nights playing around ahead :-)

Thank you very much for this great book. I have been waiting for it about half a year. I finally grasped the inheritance chain.
