First Review of Professional XML
At least this is the first review of the Professional XML book that I have seen - there may be others. But Tech-Unity did a review and got some of the purposes of the book right on the button - "This isn't a book about learning XML. This is a book about integrating XML into advanced programming and development. As the blurb on the back goes, "Wrox Professional Guides are planned and written by working programmers to meet the real-world needs of programmers, developers, and IT professionals". If that ......

New Book - Professional VB 2005 with .NET 3.0!
Another book! I and some friends just finished a new release of our Visual Basic book. This is another book I wrote with the wonderful Kent Sharkey! :) We really cleaned up this version of the book.

My Latest Book - Professional XML
This week marked the release of my latest book - Professional XML.

The Amazon site doesn't seem to provide the table of contents at the moment, so here it is: 1. XML Syntax 2. XML Editors 3. XHTML and CSS 4. XFL-FO 5. Document ......

Professional ASP.NET 2.0 Special Edition
Oh yeah .... Scott Hanselman beat me to the punch, but Mission “Build Biggest Book Possible” has been completed! Our Professional ASP.NET 2.0 book from Wrox just had to get bigger with all the cool stuff we wanted to add. 300 new pages! So big, that we could only offer the book in hardback because they don't make bindings big enough to handle all the pages (~1,700). Its called, Professional ASP.NET 2.0 Special Edition (because it is just so special). :) And as was stated by others: Here's ......
