As already stated by other reviewers if you want to have one book in your library for XSLT and XPATH this is the one. It goes into a lot of detail about the logic behind these 'languages' and I have not found a better reference manual. However, if like a lot of us you need to pick up XSLT and XPATH quickly to complete a project, then a lot of this text is superfluous and getting to the examples and seeing how it works is hard work. So as a reference book then five stars but as a learning aid then avoid and thus the final rating of three stars.

A huge improvement over earlier editions.

When it comes to XSLT and XPATH, it's difficult to know where to start. That's where this book scores. In particular the introductory chapters and Chapter 12 on XSLT patterns give a solid skeleton on which to hang other features. The rest of the book is a solid reference guide. In addition the hard cover version means that pages are less likely to drop out.

So if you are going to buy one XSTL/XPATH book, make this the one.

This book has reminded me of the importance of well-written books about computer programming, even with today's vast quantity of high quality technical info on the web. Michael Kay puts XSLT firmly into context, which is particularly important for a programming language that is unlike most. Experienced programmers should not be put off by the description "Programmer's Reference" - there's lots more than reference material here. Inexperienced programmers should probably look elsewhere if they are looking for a tutorial on XSLT.

A weighty tome with good examples and text, possibly not as useful as a reference, but certainly good as a teaching aid.
