4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting book, on an exciting topic
This is another fine book in the ORA tradition. The book does not try to be a vast reference guide, but a compact introduction to all the major topics. As such it's an excellent introduction to the topic, and well worth reading.

2.0 out of 5 stars This book lacks a practical step-by-step approach.
This book does not lead you through XML in a practical way.

It will probably sell because its an O'Reilly title; however I'm used to more real world material from them.

Once you have learnt XML you are probably not going to use this book as a reference books, as it is not appendix rich, but while you are learning it's very good.

...to those learning XML. This book proved invaluable when I was doing my web training, most of which was self-taught. The book also lies flat when opened allowing convenient reference.
