    Not a text book, or goto reference. But good primer.

    Worth the money, IMHO.

    Has a lot of good examples, and covers the fundamentals well. It'll show you how to drive and operate the car, not how to sit down and build one from a kit. A good "quick study" guide to SVG.

    Shows you what works. If you want to know *why* it works that way, you may have to spend extra time studying the examples.

    Highly recommended

    Building Web Applications with SVG David Dailey
    --------------------------------------------------

    ISBN-13: 978-0735660120

    This book is from Microsoft Press and like any other books from the publisher it is easy and nice to read.
    The concepts are introduced so that even novice readers can read understand them. The book starts with the basics with case study of 13 examples from the web.
    and then going on about creating various shapes and editing them. Then it discusses about
    colors, gradients, clipping and masking, transforms etc. One whole chapter is dedicated to motion and interactivity using animation. The chapter on filters and combining filters are good too.

    Highly recommend this book for all.
