HASH(0xa0b80e88) out of 5 stars It's only for beginners Feb. 2 2010
By Snoop - Published on
Format: Paperback
I bought this book last week for a specific problem I need to solve at work. I mostly need this book to understand the syntax. Even though it provides the basic reference to get you started, it leaves out much of the details needed to understand the capabilities and limitations of XSLT. Needless to say that I still did not get the answer to my question from this book. It's the "Hello World" version. The examples given in this book are hard to read since they don't highlight/bold the code that they're discussing.

I am using this book in combination with O'Rielly's XSLT Cookbook.

Buy this book if you just need basic reference book on your shelf otherwise look for something more advanced.

HASH(0xa0b812ac) out of 5 stars Is It Possible For A Book To Be Too Big? Oct. 3 2008
By Dan McKinnon - Published on
Format: Paperback

With XSLT 2nd Edition, this behemoth of a book tops out at over 950+ page, 600 of them a reference on XSLT itself. The 9 chapters earlier do plenty to discuss what XSLT is, how it's used, and how to use it.

If you need to use XSLT at your job or just want to learn more about it, you have come to the right place, just don't expect a quick read, this one will take a while to get through but it's worth the journey.

HASH(0xa0b81324) out of 5 stars Best XSLT book I've read Jan. 18 2013

Though I am fairly proficient with XML, I'm new to XSLT. I needed to learn it, so I've sampled about a dozen XSLT books from h library and on my tablet, but this is the best one for newcomers *or* veterans. The first part of the book is and excellent tutorial on the language, and the rest is reference, but the combination was golden for me. I will be able to use this book for a long time, and I suspect that a lot of other newcomers will appreciate the clear and straightforward explanations of how to use XSLT. No goofy jokes or distractions, just good solid teaching. That does not mean that this book is dry at all. It strikes just the right tone for people looking to learn. It also uses very nice real-world examples of how to use XSLT. This is where I felt the other OReilly book, "Learning XSLT," fell short. The examples seemed very specific to one type of use scenario that I just could not for the life of me identify with or translate into anything useful for my purposes. This XSLT book by Doug Tidwell struck a great balance between general use and specific examples. I highly recommend it!
HASH(0xa0b810cc) out of 5 stars An excellent coverage of XSLT1 and XSLT2 Jan. 24 2016

This is one of the best and most complete books on XSLT that there is. It does a great job of covering both version 1 and 2 in the same book without causing confusion if you only need one of them. I don't use XSLT daily by any means, but anytime I do need to use it, I know that any questions that I have will be answered by a few minutes spent with this book.

I'm not a huge OReilly book fan or anything but in this case I can say that the other books covering the subject are junk. This book however does a good job of getting to the info you need to know and covering it in the right amount of detail. Helpful as a reference book too.
