I'd second those two choices:
XSLT 2nd Edition
Cocoon Developer's  Handbook

Pretty much everything else you can get off the

I've got XSLT 2nd Edition (Michael Kay - Wrox: ISBN 1-861005-06-7) 
which is a fantastic reference.

Also I've got Cocoon: Building XML Applications and Cocoon Developer's

Hanbook in my collection, there both good, I must say the Cocoon 
Developer's Hanbook is by far a better, more detailed work.
