Some people, like me, want details when learning something new. Some don't. If you don't want details, then this book is for you. This book jumps right into XML and its features.
The coverage of the basic concepts and DTDs is excellent, although I had to read the DTD chapter twice to understand it. I liked the coverage of XSLT stylesheets as well. The book would have received an 8 or a 9 based on those. Unfortunately, the coverage of XPointer is more confusing than anything else and XML schema is practically untouched.
If you want to know the basics very quickly, then you may like this book. If you want a thorough understanding of the topic, then you will probably want to look elsewhere.

I have found this book to be satisfying. It was my first XML reference.
