Reading XML with PowerShell

Here is an example of accessing XML data via PowerShell:

Script:
$xmlDocument = [xml] @"
<catalog>
   <book id="101">
      <author>Author1</author>
      <title>Title1</title>
      <genre>Genere1</genre>
      <price>45.95</price>
      <publish_date>2000-10-01</publish_date>
      <description>This is a description1.</description>
   </book>
   <book id="101">
      <author>Author2</author>
      <title>Title2</title>
      <genre>Genere2</genre>
      <price>75.99</price>
      <publish_date>1998-7-15</publish_date>
      <description>This is a description2.</description>
   </book>
</catalog>
"@

$xmlDocument.catalog.book | Select-Object -Property author, title, price
