Perl in a Nutshell - A Desktop Quick Reference is a book written by Ellen Siever, Stephen Spainhour, and Nathan Patwardhan, and published by O'Reilly in January 1999. This book is basically the equivilant to having detailed man pages about everything to do with perl, in a written form.

This book is quite excellent. When doing any in depth perl programming, I find I turn to this book often. It's wonderful to have handy, easy to look up things, and a great reference.
