Extremely well written, highly exhaustive, and very much detailed. I have read the three chapters so far - install/config, backup/restore, and upgrade/migration and they provides all the information what you need to determine the best approach. This is a large book covering almost all of aspects of the SharePoint 2010 and how to administrator the key components - Search, metadata, service application architecture, security, monitoring, social computing, and many more.. This book is from the Todd and Shane who are industry known SharePoint Admin experts and it would make great resource on the SharePoint Administrator's desktop.

4.0 out of 5 stars Valuable for the SharePoint 2010 administrator April 10, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
An excellent book on SharePoint 2010 that cover a wide spectrum of topics. It would be suitable for most people who want to better understand what SharePoint 2010 can offer. The main focus is on the SharePoint Server 2010 product rather than SharePoint 2010 Foundation but that doesn't mean that it still isn't relevant for Foundation users.

It covers the whole gambit from installation to branding and customization. The book contains plenty of technical information as well a tutorial style walk throughs to help you better understand exactly what the capabilities of SharePoint 2010 are. I especially like how the SharePoint terminology and functions are described and explained in detail by the author.

In summary the book is a a valuable edition to any SharePoint administrator's library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome must have for any SharePoint2010 Admin! September 16, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My IT career has brought in a huge number of reference books and manuals to my professional library. Normally they are used as handy, convenient references for specific topics, thumbing the TOC and going direct to hot topics.

This book is refreshing - and is a highly recommended cover-to-cover read. In the first 20 pages, I found a number of pearls, which prompted me to continue a full read - don't miss it! Great job and kudos to the authors!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book!! January 25, 2011
I used this book when first getting up to speed on SharePoint 2010 and found it to be an excellent source of information. The book is logically laid out and full of relevant useful information. It has become the cornerstone for what I know about SP 2010. I didn't realize how thorough this book was until after attending a 5-day training class on SharePoint 2010. I quickly realized that this book covers the material in far greater detail than the course book, there is no way we could possibly have covered this much material in a 5-day class. If you are just getting started with SP 2010 or are somewhat experienced and just need a good reference to explore aspects of the product in greater detail, this is the book for you!!

The only weakness may be in the area of Claims Authentication. Claims is deserving of a book onto itself. For Claims, I would recommend "A Guide to Claims-based Identity and Access Control" from Microsoft Press. (Yeah, Microsoft Press finally released a book that doesn't suck...)

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for the Administrator July 18, 2011
By B. Luce
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The authors of this book kept true to the title. SharePoint 2010 Administration. I have done several WSS3 projects and this was a great book to transition me to SharePoint 2010. They even have a little humor in the book to make you chuckle every once in a while. I would recommend this book to anyone who will be administering SharePoint, setting up servers, configuring and maintaining the platform.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Book!!! July 8, 2010
By Dave
This is a SharePoint administration book that you must have. Shane, Todd and Steve have made it easy to follow, and easier to process the information. This is simply the best SharePoint 2010 Administrator book out there. Others might have some good information, but this book gives you the best practices in detail and with examples that you can relate to. Shane, Todd and Steve have a unique way of translating the information so that it is easier to understand. These guys bring awesome technical and communication skills to the table that enable you to be more productive.

Anyone involved in SharePoint 2010, or wants to start expanding on their SharePoint 2010 experience really needs to have this book. You will get up to speed with SharePoint 2010 very quickly. I was fortunate to take one of the admin classes with Shane and I have to say that the book almost replaces the class.

Thanks for an awesome book!!!!! You guys rock!!!!
