You can't always judge a book by its table of contents., May 8, 2002
Reviewer: A reader
I was looking for an introductory book on XML and decided to pick up a copy of Mastering XML after reading the introduction and perusing the table of contents. The book covers a great deal of topics, but almost all of it is poorly explained and most of the examples are not very illustrative of the related material. The author tends to describe things in a round about way and has a habit of throwing in material that isn't covered until later in his explanations. I tried reading ahead in some cases, but those sections weren't covered any more clearly so it turned into a vicious cycle. I finally had to stop reading after 400 pages. I have a background in web development with HTML, JavaScript, Java servlets, and JSP, but I would not recommend this book as a first on XML. It might serve as a reference though.

Good Resource, March 22, 2002
Reviewer:Rudolf Mouthaan (Yellowknife, NWT Canada) - See all my reviews
I often tried to understand what XML is through several published tutorials on the web. With my ASP knowledge I thought this topic would be easy to explain but I could not make sense of what they tried to tell me in these tutorials until I bought this book. It was then clear that XML is not as easy to explain in a couple of pages as HTML is. This book does a thorough job in teaching you step by step what XML is about and how you can put it to use in the real world.

extremely disappointing, January 18, 2002
Reviewer: A reader
...longer description: all explanations are very confused and confusing; nothing is clear. Buy another book (there are plenty of other books related to XML that are 2000% better for the same or lower price)

They messed it up, November 28, 2001
Reviewer: A reader
I have the first edition of this book and it's very good. When I saw the "Premium Edition", I just knew it had to be better. Boy, was I wrong. I see from the cover that they changed authors, so perhaps that's what went wrong, but the information in this edition contradicts information in the first edition and in many cases, even contradicts the specs on the W3C web site. I've put mine up for sale as used and I'm sticking with the first book.

The best XML resource out there., September 26, 2001
Reviewer:Isabel O'Neil (San Francisco, CA) - See all my reviews
This is the most comprehensive and up to date XML book I have seen yet. It offers a tremendous range of online resources and I find myself referencing it continually. The introductory chapters make XML accessible to programmers and non-programmers alike and it only gets better from there. If you can only buy one book on XML, this is definitely the one to get.
