A (commercial) book on Cocoon
Sorry this is a commercial link but if you happen to have an o'reilly safari subscription and are trying to learn Cocoon, go grab this book now : "Cocoon: Building XML Applications" By Matthew Langham, Carsten Ziegeler. It's really well done, I just spent my Saturday reading it and trying things and I'm ready to roll with cocoon. And BTW, Cocoon blew my mind I'm supposed not to be working but can't stop playing with it. Thanks to all the persons involved.
