Keep one thing in mind, though. This book is all about PLANNING, not as much DOING. There is not a lot of click here to do this and click there to do that kind of instruction. That part I can figure out. Although the use of screenshots in the book is appropriate.
The first and most important thing to keep in mind about building a SP site is to plan it out thoroughly first!! You really don't want to go in and start building things without a VERY detailed plan. Trust me. Been there! It's all about the plan is this book is a great guide!
Someone stated that this is not a beginner's book. Yes and no. Definitely yes / must-read for a beginner / first time designer or manager who wants to understand what types of problems SharePoint might help solve, and how to go about developing a strategy, governance and implementation plan. No for a first-time user who needs to understand how to create a site and which buttons to click.
This book is critical for any IT managers or consultants who are planning a SharePoint rollout. Having a solid SharePoint foundation helps to better understand the concepts within this book, beginners may have an uphill battle with it.
I particularly appreciated the sections on:
* Planning Your Security Model
* Information Architecture and Enterprise Content Management
* Making Search Work
This book isn't for developers, it truly is for those who need to communicate how to have a successful SharePoint rollout. As a consultant, this is one of the few books I have gone back to time and time again.
1) This book was written as SharePoint 2010 was coming out so it is more about the general way to approach SharePoint site design and not so much about war stories from the front.
2) The images are so low resolution on the Kindle that they range from eye strain to illegible. This is because much on SharePoint sites is text intensive and the font is small...particularly the administrative and setup screens. I tried it on my small Kindle, big Kindle, and PC. No luck. Magnification doesn't help: the pixels are blurred at any resolution. This is particularly a problem in the WalkThrough parts because those are image intensive. A blurred picture of a thousand words is worth considerable less than a thousand words. If I needed this aspect of the book in particular, I would rate it a 2.
