No sorry, I don't.

I'm only aware of three books, ("Perl Hacks" was also co-authored by him)

There are slides from merlyn covering PBP online...

I think the summary table at the appendix of PBP are available somewhere, since they influenced Perl Critic.

update

I think citing from an appendix of a PDF version is still fair use, as long as you make the source clear.

    I'd always assumed so. I've regularly cited Perl Best Practices (pdf) ... as I did only last month, while issuing dazz a yellow card for repeated whinging about Perl's unfortunate Switch statement. If that's not fair use, I apologize ... though I certainly don't relish having to edit all my old nodes. :)

    I suppose Perlish alternatives to a Switch statement is yet another candidate topic for your course.

      IIRC does Python have no switch statement so we are kind of "safe" here ... ;-)
