By now we've seen dozens of introductory XML books, and we're becoming harder to impress. Learning XML impresses us mightily.
Erik Ray's day job is helping O'Reilly implement XML workflow -- talk about eating your own dog food! In this book, he does exactly what he promises: presents a "birds-eye view of the XML landscape." It's not a programming book: It's focused on key ideas and tools you need to understand whatever you want to do with XML -- document management, web sites, application development/integration, B2B, you name it.
Learning XML is just plain well written. Clear explanations. Simple examples. Insight into what's solid about XML and what's still in flux. And coverage of every topic that matters, from links to presentation, document models to transformation, internationalization to basic programming. If you're just starting out with XML, you're lucky to have it. (Bill Camarda)
