5.0 out of 5 stars *THE* XML book for .NET June 27 2004
Dino Esposito has total, absolute command of the subject matter that he expertly teaches in this book. This is a template for how all technical training books should be written. I wanted in-depth coverage of the XML object library in .NET and that is exactly what this book delivers. This is THE book on XML in .NET. Don't waste your money on anything else.
It is also terrific supplemental material for the Developing XML Web Services and Server Components certification exam. I recommend Mike Gunderloy's book as an all-encompassing source (look up my review for that book); however, I recommend reading the first four chapters of this book before you start Gunderloy's book if you don't have much experience reading and writing XML in .NET. Chapters 12 and 13 on remoting and web services, respectively, are also great sources of exam prep material. In fact, Chapter 12 on .NET Remoting is the best chapter on the subject you will find anywhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dino is the man Nov. 15 2003
If you do much programming with MS tools, then you probably know Mr. Esposito's work. I read his column monthly in MSDN and have the utmost of respect for him.
This book is why I feel like I do. XML is everything in .NET and you can't afford to ignore it. I guess technically you can, but you'll really be limiting yourself. Dino knows his stuff and can really explain it well. He writes articles all the time, and his ability to communicate is rivaled only by his knowledge of the material.
i could go on and on about it, but there's too much to say to do it justice. So let me sum it up in one sentence. If you want program in .NET and you want to do it well, this book belongs in your library!

5.0 out of 5 stars Urrà! Signor Dino scores again! July 22 2003
Signor Dino is a prolific author - his books and MSDN Developer magazine articles are precise and most helpful. This book is a *practical* one with actual source code to illustrate the XML .NET libraries. Some knowledge of XML fundamentals is assumed and to thoroughly understand the XML .NET library, one must examine the source code along with the book. It is also a major plus that the source code is available in both C# & VB.NET (download from the MSPress site).
'I libri, come gli amici devono essere pochi e ben scelli'- Books, like friends, should be few and well chosen. This is a good choice in .NET books.
