I also endorse the same book. I also used XSLT 2.0 Programmer's Reference, 3rd ed by Michael Kay (Wrox, 2004). There is now a 4th ed (Wrox, 2008).
That combined with the XSLT electronic discussion group were a great help. 
Neither was a crash course.

  I learned XSLT 1.0 from an older medium known as a book. "XSLT
  Programmer's Reference 2nd Edition" is its title, by Michael
  H. Kay. It is now cheap because it is an old book. It's a very good
  book if you are familiar with XML to start with. Still it took
  my a few weeks to get into XSLT, even though, or maybe because, 
  I am good at learning procedural languages.
