The previous 5-star reviews are right, the book really showed me the quick and easy way to read and write XML files using C#, and a bonus for me was the creation of schema using different methods, where I struggled to understand with other books before. Clear explanations, but to get the most out of this book, one should be familiar with classes and objects as some examples are shown where classes are defined and created. If you're a true blue beginner to programming, you might get confused on later chapters of the book so I suggest you start with other beginner programming books first. This is a developer's guide to learning XML the shortest time possible. Keep it up Bipin!

This is, as far as I know, the only full length treatment of XML in .NET/C# 2008. The author has an "advanced" text, but this is based on .NET/C# 2005. This current volume serves well as both an introduction as well as a solid reference text to the full range of XML operation and usage. Chapter coverage is:

Manipulating via DOM model
Reading and Writing XML Documents
XPath
Validation
XSLT
ADO.NET
Serialization
Web Services
SQL Server
Use in .NET Framework
Creating Services in Windows Communication Foundation
LINQ to SML

But, the introduction of LINQ to XML has a "2nd generation" approach to XML reading, writing and manipulation in the Framework. The current volume devotes one chapter at 32 pages to the topic -- clear but relatively scant.

If you think you may want to use LINQ to XML, Pro LINQ: Language Integrated Query in C# 2008 (Windows.Net) offers an extended discussion at 150 pages -- with an excellent compare and contrast with the DOM version. That provides a good analysis of the approach best for your tasks and a solid explanation of implementation.

This author does a terrific job of examining all aspects of XML when coding in a C# project. I had a project in which using XML made great sense so I bought this book to answer my questions and get up to speed quickly which happened. His examples work and are well explained. Great job!

I needed the first five chapters to acquire the skills i needed to complement with the xslt. This book is good compared with some i have reviewed in the past 7 years.
Definitely novice to pro book as titled :)

The title of the book suggests that the content is suitable for novices to XML and C#. In truth, it requires a relatively good understanding of C# before one can approach the lessons on how to access and manipulate XML. I picked up this book based on the reviews and find that I will first need to go through a C# for 2010 book before I can get back to this doubtlessly fine book. =/
