The book is detailed enough for most professional office users and is clearly targeted at recent versions of Sharepoiint as in current use in Enterprise and large office installations across the world.
Unlike another book that I purchased with well over 1000 pages, I found that I could casually read this book and try the examples without getting lost in loads of verbose text. The writing style is fresh and friendly - an easy read.
I would have liked it to be accompanied by a pdf version of the book as well, as this would serve as a good companion when away from the office desk or bookshelf.
Overall, contains just what it proports to. Appropriately Priced. Recommended read.
Also, this book is call Building Business Solutions. I realize it says "Beginning" but I thought the book would contain more information about building actual business solutions using Dashboards and the Business Intelligence features that play a major role in SharePoint.
Would I buy it again? No. It doesn't provide what I'm looking for since I need a current product and not an old product. But if you are just looking to learn more about what SharePoint is it is an excellent tool.
You missed the mark on this one Wrox.
Why was I hoping to obtain a copy? Well, I focus primarily on SharePoint development and infrastructure. I spend most of my days looking at SharePoint's plumbing - not the pretty UI and business functionality that the average end-user sees. I can navigate a SharePoint site collection relatively well, but truth be told, my knowledge of SharePoint's out-of-the-box (OOTB) capabilities was weaker than I'd liked. With the recent arrival of SharePoint 2013 and a whole host of new built-in capabilities, I needed a crash course on the ins and outs of end-user capabilities within the platform.
I know a couple of the book's authors, so my expectations going in were reasonably high. I've read about 75% of the book thus far, and I can honestly say that I haven't been disappointed. In terms of learning, I'm picking up everything I'd hoped to and more.
The book starts off with just the basics: lists and libraries, views, workflows, etc. It moves from there to talk about site columns, content types, permissions, and other structural mechanisms. It then builds further to talk about Visio Services, SQL Server Reporting Services integration, and other more "advanced" end-user topics. Each of the chapters contains walk-throughs and illustrative examples to help describe the topic at hand, and together they work to build a solid foundation and understanding.
If you are an end-user or wannabe power-user who is new to SharePoint, this book is an excellent way to become productive with SharePoint in relatively short order. If you are an experienced user (or someone who focuses on other concerns within/surrounding SharePoint), the broad coverage and style of this book promote a "pick it up and read what you need" approach to consumption. I can say that the contents have already been a help to me on a couple of recent client engagements, and I have no doubts that I'll keep this book nearby for future reference.
It is the perfect book to have the general overall for the solution SharePoint 2013. A little basic, but it is the exact thing that a decision maker needs to take advantage of the features of SharePoint 2013.
Do you want a general book of SharePoint 2013? Do you want to know what SharePoint 2013 can do for your business? This is your book.
