What about learning perl and programming perl are not quite right for
you?  Iow, what's missing from learning perl wrt being an introductory

Other recommendations

  Perl Cookbook - from the pragmatic perspective - to just see how
some things are done
  Object Oriented Perl - by Damian Conway
  Higher Order Perl - by MJD

The last two are not introductions to Perl itself, but OOP is good for
learning OOP in perl and HOP is good for other reasons...
