  • I saw this yesterday too.

    I've only got one Wrox book, Michael Kay's XSLT Programmer's Reference, so I can't comment directly on the publisher in general, but I gather other people like their books. So it's a shame if they can't be salvaged as a going concern.

    On the book I do have I don't like the format, it's the same height and width of an ORA [ora.com] Nutshell book (153x228mm), but at nearly 1000 pages it's totally unwieldy. The margins are small and neat unlike some publishers, it has nice shaded "thumb tabs"

  • We have several books from WROX at work. Mostly MS related subject (ASP, MS SQL).

    Only one of our books (ASP 3.0) has shaded thumb tabs, which is too bad - I like that feature. For the most part they're not bad - some of them are just too damn long. Decent reference material though.

    In the end, I too prefer ORA [ora.com] books.

  • I coauthored a Wrox book, but I never got royalties, so I don't care. :-)
