Very good. Slacks off a little at the end.

I really liked this book. The Author does a great job of explain all the topics. He does not go into any of the topics in great depth but to get started with it is great. I have been programming in ASP and JAVA for about 3 years so I was already fairmilar with some of the ideas. The only complaint I have is that the end of the book (last couple chapters) are not that great. Examples get a little weaker along with the explanation. But to give him the benefit of the doubt the last few chapters cover some more advanced topics that this book was not really meant to address. Liked it enough though to buy his ASP.net book.

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."

Waste of money, time and effort

This entire book is nothing but an advertisement for the 'PlayOnLine' website. It gives some maps and some simple hints that you could easily have figured out on your own. However, are you looking for the best weapons? You'll have to visit PlayOnLine. Want to develop your Chocoba? PlayOnLine. Sidequests? Play...oh, you get the idea. If you don't have internet access, you're toast. even if you do, the PlayOnLine website is NOT friendly. It's slow, and the info you're trying to get is pretty well buried. You'd do better printing out one of the many online strategies put out from the private sector on the net. I seriously hope Bradygames catches a clue (and losses some revenue) from this worthless nonsense.
