Good book, but be careful

This is in my opinion is a good book on XSLT. It teaches the basics and then some advanced stuff as well. I especially liked the XSLT reference (the latter half ofthe book) with examples of how to use the XSLT features, functions etc.
I picked it up because i'm preparing for the IBM xml exam and this is listed as a reference in the IBM web site.
The only complaint i have is that the book lists the entire code and they run for pages! :-(. I find it to be very distracting.
It was better to just show a few code snippets to highlight a partcular point and the reader c'd anyway use the code listing available in downloadable format in the oreilly web site.
Hope the author will cover more meaty stuff in the 2nd edition probably and avoid such big code listings.
I read the freely downloadable chapters of "XSLT quickly" by Bob Ducharme and found it to be excellent.Unfortunately that book is'nt available here in India!
I would recommend that book over this one for people looking for a good introduction to XSLT. It's so crisp! and has been written for people who have been programming before.
Also check out XSLT and XPATh on edge..by Jeni tennison. wow i liked it. It assumes knowledge of XSLT though (ateast the basics) and deals with various practical usage of XSLT.
I have read 3 chapters as of now and found it to be very well written and useful.
If you are a java programmer looking to XSLT, i would recommend the following:

A very educated, convincing and realistic perspective

The resources on the line to deliver the software development product know what needs to be done. The chronic challenge is getting senior management to understand how they must support the "doers" in order for the organization as a whole to be successful.
This is the kind of book that can be shared with senior management in our endless efforts to help them understand why it is so key that they champion the best practices.
This book will not be easily dated. As our organization becomes more mature, the content and perspective put forth by Walker will continue to support us.

Helps to keep focus

A great aid to have if you are trying to be a Sun Certified Programmer(JAVA 2).The book takes you through the finer points of java language very well.It even covers the IO topics that are now a part of the exam objectives.I scored 89% on the latest version of this exam by sticking to this book and by developing programs.
