I started with Microsoft's own website to see how I could gain an understanding of some basics and was hoping to build very quickly from there however I found their site to me lacking. Either they were too extreme on the technical side or too extreme on the marketing side.
The organization of the book is completely logical and better yet intuitive. I can hop back and forth between topics (based upon questions I may have or something I hear my team talk about) and in less than five minutes, I can read through the information provided and make decisions/offer feedback to my team and our business groups with confidence.
* The Glossary - best glossary EVER for SharePoint. I may reach out to the publisher to see if we can license this section for our power user group because really - they couldn't be more crisp/clear in their definitions.
* The list of out of the box web parts and applicable templates - why this is so difficult to find in one place (and written in a way in which a pragmatic person can understand) - I'll never know. Thank you (authors) for including this section.
I have this downloaded on my Kindle Fire and the ability to make notes to myself and highlight areas to talk about with folks is just an immeasurable type of benefit.
I don't recommend the authors or the publisher. The book could have been made much better by a good editor.
Most books are either too technical, filled with jargon, or too broad and general in their approach without telling you how to get things done. This is not the case here. It's the extras that the authors put in this book that make it worth your time and money. You get to learn how to actually accomplish real world tasks and you don't need to be a developer to understand and implement it. Using this book, you can get up and running with SharePoint 2010 to tackle your real world business needs.
I have invested in other books that have mostly let me down when it came to cover to cover value for me as a power user. This books does not. It address all my needs and is daily resource when I need to use and help my organization better use SharePoint out of the box features to meet Business needs.
