Also, I don't know whether you guys have seen this but Victoria Large who is the Editor of Wrox.com has put up a pretty cool article on the Wrox Cover designs - Here!

Over the past few weeks, several discussions have taken place regarding Wrox: covers, multiauthor, etc...
If you have any questions about these, I will be more than happy to answer them.
So shoot ;-) (not me though, ... please)

I have read all the XML books published by Wrox and I can't stop wondering about the oversteppings. Consider XML Databases (by Kevin Williams), Professional Java XML and Professional XML. These three books have about 30% common content. What is the rationale in making the book FAT with redundant stuff? If you follow the career path at the back of the book, most of the times you end up reading the same stuff again and again in different books. This doesn't make sense even from the marketing standpoint. This is very typical of Wrox publications. If you look at others( O'Reilly, Sams, AW etc ), their books are very focussed and two books on the same subject has no or very minimal overstepping.
I personally feel there is a lot of fat that can be removed from the "Professional Java XML" .
Jeremy, do you have any insight into this very unique nature of Wrox publications?
