I've been working with SharePoint since the 2003 release of the platform, and I've read quite a few books (and written a couple myself) on the topic of SharePoint. I have to say that the the authors of the "SharePoint 2010 Six-In-One" have done an admirable job of putting together a SharePoint 2010 resource the provides a fantastic mix of pertinent content and broad topic coverage.

If you're new to SharePoint in general (or SharePoint 2010 specifically), this book is a great place to start. The authors have covered six different topic areas that are of concern to most SharePoint implementers, and they've done so in a way that provides solid baseline coverage but also addresses a few deeper (but common) concerns. In addition to the six topic areas, the first three chapters of the book provide a wonderful introduction to SharePoint in general, how it is commonly used, where it can be leveraged, and more.

As someone with a fair bit of SharePoint 2010 experience, I found myself returning to this book to get myself jump-started when I needed a little help in one of the topics it covers (e.g., branding). I was able to pull information out to get myself going in short order, and I had enough of the relevant concerns in-mind (and in-hand) to continue diving more deeply through other references.

Whether you're new to SharePoint or a seasoned professional, you'll undoubtedly find something in "SharePoint 2010 Six-In-One" to make it worth your while.

Format: Paperback
This text introduces a wide range of SharePoint 2010 concepts and solutions. It is a great introductory text for the SharePoint 2010 professional. That is not to say this is a "beginner" text: It is quite practical, and offers good supplemental perspectives on the covered topics, even if you have an established SharePoint 2010 Pro library. As the back of the book states, "A team of experts shares the six most essential areas of SharePoint 2010."

The big six are: Branding, Development, Business Connectivity Services, Social Networking, Workflow, and Search.

If you are looking for a good and technical introduction to these top areas of SharePoint 2010, you'll be glad you have this title on hand. Once you are ready to go more in depth into an area, you'll be better equipped to do just that. Even then, you'll still want this book in reach.

This is now Microsoft's 4 edition to their SharePoint product release and has now become one of their fastest growing products. With nearly 100 million licenses sold you need to find a book to guide through the product.

These SharePoint Experts give you the real story on SharePoint 2010 and target the "6" essential aspects of a very complex product. Breaking it down easily gives you the right information. I have a keen interest in workflow and Chris Geier's section on SharePoint Workflow answers all the questions I need to know about SharePoint Designer and the complex nuances of building real world workflows.

I've been using SharePoint since SharePoint 2001 and anyone who's in the midst of contemplating an upgrade this is the book to guide you with all the new features and functionality.

Format: Paperback
The section that I was interested in was the branding section and unfortunately it didn't help me much. The chapters were at once overly simplistic and vague while at the same time too technical-constant references to using solutions to deploy your branding, with little explanation of why you should use a solution, how they are made, or any mention at all of the fact that you really don't need a solution to deploy your branding. The masterpages chapter didn't dive at all into the different controls used on the masterpage nor which can be removed, no examples, just "here's what a masterpage is". The css chapter is a basic course in what css is-honestly, if you are tasked with branding SharePoint, you better already be a full-fledged web designer and know css like you're life depends on it. The information in the three branding chapters can be easily found by reading any number of resources on the web-I was looking for real depth and case studies-none are to be found here. I read all three in under ten minutes, that tells you how little content is actually in them. If you need a good branding resource, I recommend Randy Drisgill's SharePoint 2010 Branding and User Interface Design instead.
