I've searched through the table of contents and index as well as the coverage of topics is very good - comprehensive!

Technically, this is a very good book - clearly each author is well qualified in the SharePoint area.

Just starting out with SharePoint 2010 or even SharePoint in general? The book `Beginning SharePoint 2010 - Building Business Solutions with SharePoint' is an Awesome resource to get your hands on to get you up and running quickly!

First of all, this book is written by veterans (Amanda Perran, Shane Perran, Jennifer Mason, Laura Rogers) in the SharePoint community and not just from an outsider's perspective which helps tremendously since it has been my personal experience (teaching on SharePoint for 6 years now) that it is not the easiest thing to teach effectively.

This book starts directly by hitting on the major areas of SharePoint that a beginner should understand real well to make good use of this platform. Topics like Sites, Workspaces, Lists, Libraries, Workflows, Site Columns, Content Types, Branding and more are discussed in detail. Not only how to use these things, but in which scenarios would you want to utilize each. The business reasoning for using, for example, a particular site or list template is extremely important for the long term success of your SharePoint deployment.

Another really good thing about this book is that it can be used just as well by people who already understand the fundamentals and now want to dive deeper into advanced topics like Records Management, Business Connectivity Services, Forms Server, Search management and of course the understanding of implementing a plan for governing the whole thing. Once you go through these topics in this book, then you get a better understanding for how these pieces all fit together on the platform. However, if you do want a deeper dive on each of these topics, I would recommend picking up a book which covers just that subject.

This was the first book I read on SharePoint. Although it is good and detailed, I ended up getting a more basic book to learn some of the steps this book skips over. For example, it states that there are three ways to display a picture library, but never explains HOW to change the display.

I'm only 2 chapters into the book, but so far its great. I have read several SP 2010 books in their entirety, so I'm used to the quality of what is out there and while none of what I have read is bad, alot of it isn't as straight forward as this book. I love the try it out sections - very unique! I've searched through the table of contents and index as well as the coverage of topics is very good - comprehensive!

For me, a developer for the most part, this book comes in handy to let me know and try out alot of the functionality that exists through the front end of the product. Development in SP hides in the background and emulates alot of the UI based functionality, but its great to know how to do it both ways. Top that with knowledge of governance and decisions and you too can be a SP analyst!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Any good book on SharePoint solutions must start out with what you can do out of the box and what is available in each edition of SharePoint, so I was sold right out of the gate. This book successfully addresses its target audience, the business user, and meets its stated objective of introducing all levels of users to the SharePoint 2010 platform. The book covers all of the capability areas of SharePoint 2010 (Sites, Communities, Content, Search, Insights, Composites) at an adequate level for business users. I appreciate the coverage of the often overlooked Content Types and the newly introduced Document Sets. Not to be overlooked are the labs and exercise solutions designed to address real business problems. This will be the only book some SharePoint users will need, and it will be a great starting point for others. As a consultant and user group leader, I will recommend it to business professionals who want a jump start in learning the SharePoint 2010 platform. I am also adopting it as a textbook for the SharePoint course I teach at a university. Well done.

Format: Paperback
Technically, this is a very good book - clearly each author is well qualified in the SharePoint area. However, one gets the feeling that the chapters were assembled from the various authors, once all had been written, without a decent level of editing efforts for consistent style, grammar, etc. Since I'm not an author, maybe this is the way it's "supposed to be". But as a reader, it makes the book less enjoyable that it could have been.

For example, if you work your way through the book, you'll deal with "sites" and "site collections" in Chapters 1-7 (the terms are defined for you in Chapter 1). However, upon arriving at Chapter 8, you are abruptly confronted with "webs" instead of "sites", without a prior explanation that they are one-in-the-same. A careful reader, or one with prior SharePoint experience, will realize they are 2 different terms for the same thing, but a new user may need to carefully analyze the text through the first several pages of Chapter 8 to figure this out. This is one example of the lack of consistency across the chapters.

(I certainly hate to beat up on the author of Chapter 8, but it's the first big change in the book, so it bears using as an example. Maybe that same author wrote one of the earlier chapters in the book too - I don't know who wrote what).

Chapter 8 is also where there is a dramatic change of writing styles. Now, everyone has a different writing style, so I don't blame the author - but shouldn't the editor be watching out for things like this and insist on a rewrite? It is MUCH more conversational and marks a turn in the book from "present the technical facts" to "entertain the reader" - an unnecessary turn that detracts from the excellent technical aspects.
