One burning question the book answered was whether one needed MOSS to do development. The answer was that WSS (included with Windows Server 2003) is sufficient.
Since I wasn't a Microsoft .NET developer some of the companion books I recommend for SharePoint development are Scribner's book for workflows, Liberty (et al)'s, and Hilyard (et al)'s books on C#. I'm still looking for a good book for ASP development. It was a bit of a struggle using both Walther's and MacDonald (et al)'s books.
Ted's book explains the key difference between SharePoint customization and SharePoint development, and focuses on best practices for the later. After reading it, I had a game plan for future development using SharePoint and also for bringing my two legacy apps under control.
When I found the book's Microsoft site (it is from MSPress) I get this link; [...]. It is only a single line correction with no hints of where to get the book's code samples from!
The lack of samples was quite frustrating as some chapters make explicit reference to sample projects.
The books itself is well written and very solid on theory.
If you are a beginner or mid level developer in WSS. I highly recommend this book as it will really polish your skills
The authors push their personal preference in design. I don't mind an author putting forth a preference but this author puts forth some things as the "right" solution that will make a seasoned programmer raise an eyebrow.
