Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is geared toward readers such as Web Developers, Information Management / Compliance Specialist, Administrators to name but a few. If you are a beginner to Sharepoint Server 2007, this book will be a most difficult read. The concepts and topics that are presented will have to be re-enforced with online research or the purchase of another book.

To give an example.
The book is composed of six sections, with the first three ( 663 pages in length ) being targeted towards administration and configuration. However, within this mix we have presentations on performance monitoring and MOM 2005, high level discussions on information security policies such as password and storage policies, data classification. We are introduced to advanced Enterprise topics such as the Business Data Catalogue and records compliance ( that is the Sarbanes Oxley Act etc. ). These discussions all assume prior expertise and should you be new to Sharepoint Server 2007 this will no doubt frustrate you. The Authors, in their quest to appeal to a wide variety of readers, cannot delve into the in-depth explanations, followed up by well worked out examples that a beginner to Sharepoint Server 2007 would require.

Web Developers will tend to focus on Sections 5 and 6. While these sections do introduce Workflow Services, Webparts and products like Sharepoint Designer I found the overriding theme is again one of high level discussion and overviews. Expertise is assumed.

Format: Hardcover
It discusses everything you need to know with regard to MOSS 2007 but never really makes a point or stands out in any area. I read it and I feel like I am reading an infomercial about it and at times it lays out things you can do but it is not focused or useful in terms of diving into Sharepoint functionality or pointing out ways to actually get anything satisfying accomplished.

Great book for pre-sales and administrators. But too much information in this book does not give crispy answers to questions

Format: Hardcover
An average job explaining the the process of administering the system and a less than average job for establishing the conceptual framework of the possibilities of the product. MS seems never able to strike the balance between the big picture and micro details. There are dozens of feature possibilities mentiond through out this book but the sole of SharePoint is integration of EVERYTHING an organization needs to organize, find, publish etc. Yet no real vision, and no solid examples illustrate how it might all come together.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Scott Widener on January 27, 2008
Format: Hardcover
The sheer amount of information presented in this volume is impressive in and of itself. The depth and quality of coverage into the many topics varies, and there's no one topic covered in totality, but this is the "one" book. English et al. nailed coverage across topics i.e. in scope and breadth. This is certainly not the book for beginners; there is a degree of basic SharePoint knowledge assumed, and you'll need to go elsewhere for deeper developer discussion (e.g. Pattison and Larson) or specifics on administration (various blogs). But if you're to make a career out of SharePoint 2007, you'll need most if not all of the information that's contained in this book. It's nice to have it in one reference.

Format: Hardcover
When the "principle" author turns the writing reins over to others, the contents of this book becomes worthwhile. Unfortunately, that does not happen often enough. In reading this book I am reminded of the Calvin and Hobbes cartoon where Hobbes asks Calvin why he is not going to school. Calvin replies that he is just going to go on talk shows and hype himself.

Don't buy into the hype. If you do, you are going to feel very lonely with this Administrator's Companion. Scot Hillier's books, although they have a developer focus, offer a lot more than this book does for the administrator.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Steve Palmo on February 18, 2007
Format: Hardcover
excellent reference covering most of entire product with great examples and explanantions as to not only the how but also covers the why. well organized with many pictures & tables (worth a thousand words) and comparing sps 2003 & wws 2.0 with the current moss 2007 and wss 3.0 enhancements. basically this is a must-have reference book for all sharepoint administrators and implementors. i recommend this book to all my customers. my only complaint is that you can't print the material on the cd because the book is rather heavy to travel with everyday and would like to be able to review only certain portions without booting laptop while im on mass transit for multiple hours per day.

I took a seminar with Bill a few years ago on SharePoint 2003 and I loved how he deliver each lesson. Thats why I bought this book. I recommend this book as a learning tool, as a companion and as a reference tool to using MOSS 2007!
