This is a useful introduction to XML databases. However I found that the book tried to cover subject matter that a reader would probably already know if they were looking into storing XML in a database for example there are overviews on XML, XSLT, SQL and relational database tables.

I would have liked to have seen more detail on the Oracle and SQL Server utilites. The worst thing about this book is the examples. There is one example where the table is named "XML" and the column is also named "XML" so its difficult to determine when the code is referring to the table or the column. Its a good starting point, but I wish I'd bought a more detailed book.

A thorough book, can be a slow read, but with the aid of espressos, possible. To be fair it is a very wide subject on a system that forms the basis of many databases so one must expect to head scratch a few times.
