Although the book's title includes "for Education," this book will be valuable for anyone managing Plone in an workplace that has multiple work groups with different responsibilities, all managing their own content. This kind of environment is where Plone shines, and Erik shows you the state-of-the-art combination of deployment techniques and add-on products to make it work for departments, committees and individuals. He also discusses solid techniques for creating your own Plone extensions to adapt this already versatile web CMS to your organization's particular needs.
The book is also not just for Plone 3. Plone 4 is coming very soon, and Erik's a member of the Framework Team that reviewed and selected features for Plone 4. The Plone features and add-ons he discusses are carefully chosen from the Plone mainstream; they'll work as well in 4 as 3.
Another note for those who know Erik. Erik is famous as Plone's friendly grinch: someone always challenging anything he sees as a comfortable orthodoxy, whether it's for deployment or development. If you're concerned that Erik's errant Platonism might compromise the practicality of the book, though, rest easy. This book is practical and main stream. Erik shows off solid, well-understood, well-supported ways of using Plone -- even when he earlier argued that the same features would compromise hopelessly the whole effort's mathematical purity.
For two more detailed reviews of this book see my weblog. First an in-depth look at Chapter 7 about creating forms with PloneFormGen and then a chapter-by-chapter review, with recommendations on who should read that chapter.
