Dino does a great job on this book.
Robert J. Neville Jr.
Looks like a great book, I just wish more books would write the language ie C# in this case on the outside of the book, or in the title.
Jorge Berova
Chapters 12 and 13 on remoting and web services, respectively, are also great sources of exam prep material.

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.

Dino tells all in this superb and in depth look at XML on Microsoft's .NET platform. The book is well organized, starting at the fundamental classes and then branching out to the high abstraction level .NET classes and other Microsoft products such as SQL Server 2000 and Internet Explorer.

As an example of why this book is so wonderful, there have been several situations where I needed to do something in XSLT that just didn't seem practical (maybe not even doable). The section on how to use standard .NET languages such as C# from XSLT is itself worth the price of admission.

Keep in mind that readers are expected to have a good grasp of XML; the book is a .NET book.

Format: Paperback
This book tells many fundamental skills you need to know regarding XML. Focusing on the programming with .Net Framework instead of how to use .Net VisualStudio, this book gives you a solid knowledge to help you master XML programming. Many advanced topic are introduced, such as .Net Remoting, security, COM interoperability. But if you wanna know much more about these advanced topic, more detailed books you will need to read. But so far, after reading this book, you get a solid and general idea about XML programming with .Net framework. You will not get fooled any more with how these technologies are applied to the applications. Besides, the author gives insight comment and review regarding these topic in a relatively neutral way, which gives you more option to develop your application and provide objective choices in achieving the goal.
Finally, if you are interested in Web Service, Security, .Net Remoting, COM interoperability, additional books are required to you. But so far,this book really provides a general solid knowledge for you to go any further. And what i wish to tell is this book is definitely not for beginners, many other concept should you get to know before reading this book, otherwise you will find it hard to follow.

I am a proficient MSXML coder but i can't get what I want (knowledge about .Net XML programming objects) from this book because the author habitually relies on advanced concepts from related technologies to explain things. So unless you are a pretty competent .Net programmer and already proficient in ADO.Net/ADO you will struggle to understand this book and struggle to understand the significance of what you are being told and why. I gave up and resorted to looking for articles on MSDN. Undoubtedly there is good stuff here but Mr Esposito writes as an extremely knowledgeable person for the already extremely knowledgeable person only.

OK, I bought this book for some XML and SOAP stuff I had to do for a project. I have been tring to read it, the problem is EVERYBODY in my office constantly has the thing borrowed from me I havn't had a change to really get into it! It's certinally very popular. Unfortuatly my co-works are not taking the hint that they should buy their own copies.
I can say the the specific stuff I've need to find has been in the book in very easy to understand an apply terms and techniques. I've only has a question about one thing, so I emailed to auther and responsed rather quickly with a great answer to my question.
As I see it, you have two options: Buy two copies of this book (one for you, one for your co-workers), or buy a copy and hide it.

Dino does a great job on this book. It is a great reference on how Microsoft handles and processes XML.

This book only has one drawback that it is outdated as it refers to Visual Studio 2003 and many things in Visual Studio 2005 have been changed or are outdated.

Hope they pubblish soon a book that is more up to date.

Anyone that writes software around the XML standard absolutely needs this text book! The author has done a stellar job at describing the strengths and limitations of XML from a programmer's perspective. In addition, he has provided very clear programming examples that in some cases can be cut-and-pasted right into your source file.

What I like the most about Dino's approach is that he takes the time to explain things in a brief paragraph format, and then provides simple examples of what he just described. He not only knows this subject - but also how to explain it to others.

This book has earned a place on my 'Top Shelf'.

Great job Dino !
