most people think about zsh just as "yet another ksh evolution". I think it's unfair:

zsh lives in the space between the world of shells and the dynamic langages:

yes it's a shell, making things easy when you need to pipe two commands, execute
something remotely, store an stderr and so on.

yes it takes care of data structures more serioulsy . Not as well as a dynamic langage
does but you have arrays, hashes, you can sort, map, grep and so on...

in this talk, i'll explain you zsh using perl examples so it would be very easy
for a perl monger to dive in.
