"…the book is useful to biologists who already use languages like C+ or Visual Basic and want to learn Perl." (Biomolecular Engineering, November 2004)
“…written in a pleasant chatty style with obvious enthusiasm for the topic” (Robotica, Vol. 22, 2004)
“...unique and I highly recommend it as a first book on programming for biology-oriented professionals interested in using perl...excellent for self-study...can also be a great resource as classroom material...” (Clinical Chemistry, Vol. 50, No. 2, 2004)
"...not be surprised to see [it] finding a space on the bookshelves in many biological laboratories in the near future." (Briefings in Bioinformatics, Vol 5(1), March 2004)
