I am a recent Computer Science graduate and decided that SharePoint was the product to learn.
I started with more advanced SharePoint books but made little progress because they had little introduction and were complex in early chapters.

I purchased Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Plain & Simple: Learn the simplest ways to get things done with Microsoft SharePoint 2010 and worked my way through the exercises. What I found is that the other reading I've done in SharePoint makes sense now because this book clearly explains the usability in simple terms.
This book gets right to the point of what SharePoint 2010 can do for Designers. It has excellent step by step instructions along with color coded graphics.

As a result of this, I am able to go to more advanced books and make progress.
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone using or learning SharePoint 2010.

I give this book a solid 5 out of 5.

Let me first start with what this book is not. I'ts not an in-depth, complete book on SharePoint 2010. it starts off with 'What's New in 2010', then, goes from Getting Started and Organizing chapters, all the way to security and search. It covers quite a lot of areas, over-all.

That being said, it is an excellent book on what it is. It is a very good map for those who just want the facts - for those who want to learn about SharePoint without having to be a developer or an Administrator. Plain & Simple provides a map, if you will of some of the major points of SharePoint, how to get there, what it looks like when you get there and what it does once you're there.

Along with the pictures (screenshots), tips, descriptions for each area, this book provides a lot of good information in a short space, including information about Security and SharePoin search. It doesn't overwhelm you with a lot of in-depth text, so this isn't a full-blown, get to know everything there is about SharePoint kind of book, but it allows you to get a good feeling for SharePoint and what it does, and at the same time, it shows you how to do it.

I found this book informative and helpful in all the site collection duties. Setting permissions, working with templates, lists, workspaces, look and feel, etc. As a site collection's admin, without any previous instruction, you could get a site up and running by just using this book. It seems to covers it all.

It does not, however, cover any Farm Admin duties. This looks to be strictly for designers and not for disaster recovery, site collection creation, shared services or any other Farm admin duties. It would be great if there were a Plain and Simple for those duties!

Designers should defintely have this book.

I'm a SharePoint specialist at a Fortune 500 company - I've helped well over 100 people get started with SharePoint and this is the first and only book I recommend.

There are so many reasons I like it -
It is not a very thick book and thats a good thing - When anyone is getting started with SharePoint, it can be pretty intimidating - the last thing a user needs is a 500+ page book they will never read.

The Book is well laid out, and printed in full color - each section is color coded and there are screenshots on nearly every page.

The book uses a step by step, 1) 2) 3) format for teaching - this extends to the screenshots, in which the steps are clearly marked by small numbers so that it is easy to follow along.

Another huge benefit, is that this book is really affordable - so much so that I never get any resistance from users and many have proudly brought their books with them to the Q&A sessions we hold at work!

Format: Paperback
This would be the book I'd love to see in the hands of all our employees at work... Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Plain & Simple: Learn the simplest ways to get things done with Microsoft SharePoint 2010 By Johnathan Lightfoot and Chris Beckett. As we get ready to move from SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2010, one of the biggest concerns we have is training people on the changes. To be honest, trying to hook up current SharePoint users with concise how-to information is also a struggle. Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Plain & Simple overcomes that with most everything someone would need to know to get the most out of SharePoint 2010 as an end user or power user.

Contents:
About This Book; What's New and Improved in SharePoint 2010?; Getting Started with SharePoint Sites; Organizing and Managing Information; List and Library Essentials; Working with Documents; Working with Media; Using Information Management Policies; Organizing People and Work; Using SharePoint with Office 2010; Collaborating with Blogs; Security Within SharePoint 2010; Using Personal Sites and Social Networking; Searching for Information; Index

This was my first exposure to the Plain & Simple series, and I can understand why they work so well. Printed in full color, they focus on the essential tasks that a person would want to accomplish with a piece of software. A brief explanation of the feature is followed by step-by-step instructions on the task. In addition, there are numerous information "bubbles" throughout, targeting tips, things to try out, references to additional information, and cautions to remember.
