You will read and re-read this book several times.

Well it's doing OK, but the book which at the moment seems to be selling in vast quantities is this MOSS 2007 Best Practices book.

A definite must-read for any SharePoint Administrator!

When deploying SharePoint, it is critical to plan for not only what you need now, but for how it will grow and scale down the road, especially when Document Management is involved. If you don't plan adequately for searchability, scalability, or disaster recovery, you can easily run into problems.

One criticism I have had of many SharePoint books is that they are written from a technical perspective and explain how to install and configure SharePoint, but they gloss over the critical planning stages or the best practices for scalability.

As the name of this book indicates, this is a very thorough guide covering the best practices for planning, deploying, optimizing, and organizing SharePoint. This book is not necessarily intended to give you step-by-step instructions for installing SharePoint, but rather cover the full lifecycle of a SharePoint deployment and give you best practice recommendations. The layout and organization of the book is very logical, making it easy to quickly find what you are looking for. It covers both Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 and MOSS 2007. It is written to be accessible by anyone on a team evaluating or implementing SharePoint, or anyone who just wants to learn more about it.

The book is broken into the following sections:

Introduction--includes an overview of the various SharePoint Technologies, how to determine which you need, and how SharePoint will help your business.

Part I--Planning--This is not just about planning for the IT infrastructure, but more about planning for the impact that SharePoint will have on your organization, such as dealing with push-back from users after moving away from shared folders to SharePoint document libraries and breaking down departmental "information kingdoms.

My own Sharepoint 2007 book came out recently and so I have been constantly checking the Amazon US "hit parade" to see how it's been doing.

Well it's doing OK, but the book which at the moment seems to be selling in vast quantities is this MOSS 2007 Best Practices book.

Now I'll admit that before I got a copy for myself I was hard put to understand why. After all this was a book by the two people (Bill English and Ben Curry) who had (organised or) written the two existing Sharepoint Administrator Books from Microsoft Press - the massive (and, through the many authors, slightly unbalanced) Administrator's Companion and the small, but full of quality information "Administrator's Pocket Consultant - so what else could there be in this one ?

Actually there's a lot because this is probably a completely different book to any of the - by now almost 100 - SharePoint 2007 books that have gone before.

It's probably the first one that you can **and should** read without having a computer handy.

The book doesn't concentrate on teaching you how to do things - which is naturally what most of the other books do - but instead concentrates on making you THINK. Think, that is, about your options BEFORE you do things.

The other thing I've noticed is that it's the kind of book where you can dive into a topic that's maybe only a part of a section of a chapter and read just that and you will have learned something useful.

My favorite example of that is the few pages in the Document Management chapter that discuss whether or not you should use SharePoint (document libraries) as a replace for a File Server system. First there's the single line with the answer (No) but that's followed by some indication of what could be moved and what not and why.

Format: Paperback
This book is fantastic for individuals who understand SharePoint, and the normal SharePoint practices, but want more in-depth tips, tricks, and best practices written by two guys who have plenty of real-world experience.

There are plenty of suggestions for ensuring you are getting the most out of your SharePoint 2007 installation.

The book is well-written, easy to read, and more importantly, easy to understand.
It also contains a CD with lots of utilities and helpful documents that can be used in your own SharePoint environment.

I highly recommend you buy this book, as it explains a lot of areas in SharePoint that sometimes are confusing, and it also contains real-world tips and tricks that you can implement to ensure your SharePoint installation is running optimally.

Thanks and great job guys!

It's become just one more place to look with the hope of finding answers. Quoting its introduction: "This is not a how-to book....[and will not teach you to] to install, configure, or administrate Sharepoint Server 2007..."

A page earlier, the book said: "...if you're responsible for designing, implementing, configuring, or managing a Sharepoint Server 2007 deployment, this book is for you..."

So don't make this your first, second or maybe even third book on Sharepoint. Make it your fourth. It does have some good material on necessary cultural shifts, etc.

Do not under estimate the amount of up front planning you need to deploy sharepoint. I have not found many resources that adequately guide you through the process. Every installation is different and the standard Microsoft material is to generic to be useful.

This book describes the pitfalls and suggests real life scenarios in which to help better guide you. This book you will give Architects and Designers a good grounding in how the technology should be used and some of its pit falls. It is NOT a step by step how to install Sharepoint guise. In fact I do not think there is one of those even though we would all love to have one.
