Java and XML -- for pros only, not for beginners

Java and XML probably deserves 5 stars, but I can't understand the explanations enough to run the examples.
This book assumes a lot of knowledge, even stating that you need a few extra books on xml and reccommends Java and XSLT, by Eric Burke (which I also own).
I wanted to get going on some examples, but I can't get xalan configured properly.
Java and XML needs a better outline. The author should make a clear outline that explains how to achieve a task and then explain how to accoplish the smaller tasks that make up the main task on hand.
Java and XML is written from the "windows world" perspective. What about Mac and Linux?
There is a lot covered here. Little introduction, almost no follow-up explanations; a barrage complicated examples. Kind of like a Slayer song...

All you need for Network+ (as far as a book)

Very detailed, laid out well, and a easy read. The questions and reviews were great, tricky questions which made you think. It sure helps if you have the hands on experience, however if you do or don't this is the book I would recommend.

Best one on the shelves

I want to make comment on this book because this is the best one for Project 2003. I read some books about MS Project 2003 but all look like I can read the same things from Help File or Online Help. In this book you will get the example step by step to help you understand the basic behind. You can do the same thing with more understanding (more and more....) when compare to the thick one.This is not only good for the professional but also good for the amateur. The price is right, do not confuse with the thickness of the book when compare with other book.

Excellent tutorial...

I have absolutely no HTML experience, yet I am able to grasp the concepts quickly and easily thanks to short, concise paragraphs and helpful illustrations. This is a great "how to" book.
