"There is a lot of information contained in XQuery and it is obvious that Priscilla Walmsley both knows her topic, and is quite clear, concise and well versed on presenting the information in a logical style. While the book is aimed at the XQuery novice, it's usefulness as a desk reference makes it one of those books that you get to learn the topic, but keep forever."

"Overall, I am really pleased with this book. I've read some other on the same topic and they were either not as compact or not focused enough. The material available in this book clearly illustrates how the author master the XQuery language and give plenty of information usually needed for real-world projects, through some XQuery functions which should have been added to the language. I have personally used this book for a real-world project dealing with lots of XML documents and it has proved to be really useful. The companion website is also a must-have when developing XQuery functions."
