Even better

This new edition expands and updates the previous one (a true classic). Several parts were rewritten to improve understanding (e.g. RIP solutions) and a lot of modern technologies are now discussed, including Mobile IP, IPsec, VPNs, IP Multicasting, Voice and Video over IP, and IP Telephony. It is worth every dollar of its price.

Destined to Be Dog-eared By the Veteran Programmer

Over the past year I have purchased about 5 different XML books. I bought each book because they had at least one chapter on XSL - most XML books had nothing. Finally, a book comes out the discusses in depth everything you wanted to know about XSL translations. I like the book because it covers all of the currently available XSL parsers. This book is excellent for the Web developer or programmer who is interested in using XML/XSL translations. The book is an excellent companion to Wrox's other XML book, "Professional XML."

Instructor loves this book

I'm a Java instructor, and I love this book. It's excellent for cross-training folks from the mainframe to the Web. The book is divided into modules that can be taught in instructor-led classes in the same order. Depending on your students, you could cover all modules in 8 days. Each section has "one-minute" drills that students can orally respond to (although the answers are in small print on the same page). Also, each module has sample programs that literally give students an order to follow as in: "Step-by-Step: 1. Create a new file called ..." My only disappointment is that the author didn't cover Java topics that are intermediate to advanced in nature because he does such an effective job. His module on Java Threading is so clear and consise that students can easily follow the concepts.
