I just got Michael Kay's book last week.
It is a MUST.

It would have save me a couple of painful weeks if it had been released
a couple of months before. 
(On the other side, we would then miss some very fresh information.)

Considering usefulness, style and ease of use, it is already one of my 
favorite technical books EVER.

And again on that "page number" remark Michael made a couple of weeks 
ago: if you have the book and use it, you will probably feel no need to
ask most questions that could be answered by page number since the book
is so well/clearly organized.

Have fun,

Paulo Gaspar

It is the only printed, prose-based book about XSL that is available in
one up-to-date edition.

There's also Elliotte Rusty Harold's XML Bible, which has an erratum on
the web to bring its XSL chapter up-to-date. See

And there's Crane Softwrights' Practical Transformation Using XSLT and
XPath, which is available in PDF form and still looks more like a
Powerpoint presentation than a book, but I still recommend it because
it's quite good.

There are several other XML books that cover old XSL working drafts and
that are probably still relevant if one is using IE5 without the newer
MSXML previews installed.
