Whenever someone asks me about the books to learn XSL, from personal
experience, I recommend
Jeni Tennison [1]for starters and then her "XSLT on the Edge" [2]for
recipes and Dr Kay's "XSLT 2.0 Programmer's Reference" [3] and "XPath
2.0 Programmer's Reference", well for reference.
I just noticed XSLT, Second Edition coming out from O'Reilly.[4]
Does anyone have any experience with the book, perhaps with the
previous edition?
It seems to have some content targeted at beginners, yet the sheer
volume (986 pages) suggest reference style content.
Is it the reference then, or more recipe-oriented, can anyone perhaps
share the thoughts on the book's good and bad points?

Thanks in advance, Lech
