RE: Thoughts on the XSLT, Second Edition book
Actually, the one that's just come out is the 4th edition - and it's now nearly 1400 pages. It's designed to cover the language in depth - both reference content, and a thorough explanation of the concepts. So it's designed both for experienced users and also for beginners who want to become experts, but it's not a step-by-step tutorial.
