I have been learning intersection homology and perverse sheaves in the following way. I started by reading the first $7$ chapters of Kirwan and Woolf's book http://www.amazon.com/Introduction-Intersection-Homology-Theory-Edition/dp/1584881844.

Then, I read chapter $8$ of the book http://www.math.columbia.edu/~scautis/dmodules/hottaetal.pdf which introduced the theory of perverse sheaves using the language of $t-$ structure. After reading the abstract construction of the category of perverse sheaves for an algebraic variety or analytic space, I hope to see examples of calculating the perverse sheaves for spaces with easy stratification, such as $\mathbb{CP}^n$. Could anyone please provide some interesting examples? Thanks!
