This review is for the first edition of this book. The author is knowlegeable on the subject, unfortunately the XPath standard underwent major changes after this book was published and it contains a number of significant errors on the subject of XPath. I spent quite a few hours trying to figure out what was wrong. In its favor, it is well written where accurate and very easy to understand. Errata is available online, at least it was when I was using this version, but the later edition (the one with the robot on the cover) is far superior to this and I would take my money (as I did) and purchase the later edition instead of this.
I have not read through the whole book yet. In fact, I am only in chapter 4. One thing I find annoying about this book is that, it uses lots of explanations that seem a bit redundant. For example, the Yankees statistics in chapter 4, the explanation of credit card payment, etc. If this book can get to the point and use whole lot less explanations on things that are not so related, I would have rated 5 stars for this book
