However, it's pretty apparent that the book was rushed (at least editorially) due to the large number of grammar mistakes, awkward sentences, terrible analogies (some of them a bit inappropriate in any textbook), and somewhat questionable _structure_ of the content.
Again, Sahil does a good job of capturing a lot of the key changes in 2010 and gives good examples (chapter 5 being the most interesting to me, personally). If I were grading on content alone, the book would be closer to 5 stars. It's the editing team at Apress that have let down Mr. Malik by not putting enough attention in properly structuring and organizing the content and not performing adequate proofreading. I feel that many of the concepts and ideas could have been organized a bit differently and more coherently to help the reader better link the concepts together and have a clearer path to ramping up. It may have helped if the book had a more focused target audience (Mr. Malik himself points out that the book is broad in nature).
That said, as I mentioned in the opening of the review, I would definitely recommend this for SharePoint developers who are transitioning or preparing to transition from 2007. Despite it's flaws, it's still worthy of the time and money that you'll invest in it.Read more ›
It is well paced, interspersing theory with chunks of real code and meaty walkthroughs. You get to see how things work without that overly code-heavy, I've-been-reading-this-same-page-for-an-hour approach that plagues many technical books. And Sahil's sense of humor keeps you awake just when things start to get a little dry.
I highly recommend this book for developers who are comfortable with .NET and have a basic understanding of what SharePoint does from a user's perspective.
This was one of the first books I acquired in my SharePoint 2010 library. The opening chapter is well worth the purchase because it gives step-by-step instructions on configuring your development environment. And, as a typical developer, that will be your first step in really getting under the hood in SharePoint.
Also, the section on Managed Metadata and Content Organizer is excellent. I found these sections extremely relevant to recent SharePoint project I was working on.
While not as "heavy" a volume as some books on this subject, I find myself coming back to it again and again. There are definitely some real gems in this volume. I purchased both the hard copy and Kindle editions, not out of support for a friend, but because I really relied upon the material when dealing with SharePoint 2010 - which is a complex, and often difficult system to master.

I purchased this for my husband who said it was very informative and well written.
As it contains a lot of relevant information it will take some time to absorb everything.
There should be no reason for anyone to buy this book, as there are much better books out there with great content coverage, solid examples with great professional writing style. Read morePublished on February 5, 2012 by Mark Jordan (Orange County CA)
