I was hoping of a concise read... I am currently reading xQuery, and query

The best one I feel out all that I searched to read was xml quick start. That
book is done beautifully and wish for am update, I read it two time ready, and
plan on reading it again.

.... The true problem is that no instinct gratification, meaning, I can't just
type it into the console and get result. I wish for a console like
environment. The reason for me jumping into xml as so is cause of me coming
across xqib(a language that can be use for database, server-side, middle-tier,
and client side scripting(at least that what the documentation show)) the
reason for me tell you this is in hope that you can point me to such an
environment for me to practice what I am learning.

Thank you all for the suggestion.... I search for more of a concise reading
material but also reading heavy ones to. It just with these thick book, the "I
want to learn" is in between concept, and technical detail. Yes that's
important. But I wish to just learn the language and what is needed to know.
These books to my opinion would sell more if they chop them up into smaller
book... I could take these book apart and reorder them and reword them than
resell them(but that's not right, and I'm not no wizard to be doing that) a
book over a thousand pages could be chop up into five books, each one overing
a specific topic. For example; querying xml have mix information that
concatenate together, in a chapter they'll give you a little bet of history,
syntax, and a discussion view. I do enjoy reading it, but.... "I want to
learn!" They could have chop up the book and label as so:

-first book
 querying xml part 1:
Learning xml, schema, xPath, xslt, and xQuery
Pages: 600

-second book
querying xml book 2:
the history of querying data
Pages: 300

-third book
querying xml book 3:
discussions and views on querying xml
Pages: 300

This instead of over a thousand pages is much better. It allow one to pick a
choice what they want to read on. And if please will see toward the other two
books to gain more topic. Especially if they had knowledge of it being of one
book from the beginning.

I'm writing this in hope of an author of one of these books is reading or get
word of this or if someone who is reading this is also reading a fat book and
would consider breaking it down into smaller books and making it an series.

Thank you for reading. I got to get back to reading these fat, but enjoyable
books... Just think; more books more money... And a little followers waiting
on your book to be release... Actually

the best money I've ever spent on XML-technology-related documentation -- it
is a fantastic piece of work. Mulberry Technologies [1] have an assortment of
print resources available on their website. Ken Holman's Practical
Transformation with XSLT and XPath is another excellent reference [2]. Sal
Mangano's XSLT Cookbook has come in handy for me at various times.
