In my opinion there are very few really good books dealing with cgi. Perhaps it is because there is really not a lot to learn!

This books however does cover other topics including security, server side includes and image maps which a cgi programmer would do well to know about.

If you are not so worried about cgi itself then the Llama book on perl is the one to go for.
