    THE definitive XML reference

    In my opinion, XML In A Nutshell is the definitive reference for XML syntax and use. I¿ve had this book on my desk since the first edition. Now at edition 3, this book just keeps getting better and better. It covers virtually every XML standard, provides lots of examples, and has a character set reference that I couldn¿t live without. Highly recommended for all XML questions. Like many of the ¿Nutshell¿ books, this book starts off with a lot of informational chapters, designed to give a high level view of many XML-related technologies. These chapters, while a bit vague in parts, are still very good and will answer most general questions. However, when you have a deeper question, the reference chapters in the second half of the book really shine. The reference material is well organized, making information easy to find and digest. Personally, my favorite chapters are the XPath Reference and the XSLT Reference sections. Anyone who works with XML on a daily basis should have this book at their desk. This is the one book to have on XML.

    Excellent reference

    Let me put it this way : I have the first edition, yet I just shelled out $36 for the second edition. 'Nuff said.
