I am looking for a book teaching Perl and CGI programming?
It will be great if it goes from beginner to advance.
Does anybody have any suggestions?

First I would read "Learning Perl (2nd Edition)" and then maybe check out "Teach Yourself Cgi Programming With Perl in a Week".

I'd suggest:

PERL by EXAMPLE by Ellie Quigley (2nd edition) ISBN:0-13-655689-2
(That's for learning Perl there's also a chapter on CGI - but after mastering Perl - you'll find CGI very easy!!)

CGI Developer's Guide by Eugene Eric Kim
(this is for learning CGI using examples - not very thorough - but let's you feel the power of CGI and motivates you)

Special Edition Using Perl for Web Programming by David Harlan, et al.
(for CGI programming)

 and if you're going to make real programs you probably switch back to the Camel book (1st Edition) ;-)
