One area that excelled is the section on setting up the search services. This is a critical and very powerful part of SharePoint 2013, and one that the native "wizard" does poorly, in my opinion. After going through the chapter on configuring the search services, I have a very well configured and stable foundation for this important service.
Even though this book is directed more towards the Enterprise version (my organization uses the Standard version) it was still well worth the cost for the information provided.
I would agree that some of the scripts would be far easier to use if they were available online, but this is a minor issue.
The only negative is there is a lot of powershell scripts which is great. It would have been great if they could have been downloaded. There is one chapter of code that can be downloaded. If they added the scripts from the other chapters, it would be very helpful.
The book. It is excellent. I can say that I don't dread reading it like most technical books. It is very to the point and accurate. I have used much of what they have written already with 5 different clients and it works everytime. They provide excellent guidance and make tough subjects easy to understand. I have already recommended it to many of my colleagues and clients. This is nothing short of the best book I have read on SharePoint 2013 yet, and with that sets the bar very high for others.
If you are thinking of implementing SharePoint 2013, or already have started, you need this book.
This book covers a lot of ground. Highlights for me: Important concepts any good SharePoint Administrator needs to understand, Upgrade to SharePoint 2013, PowerShell, Backup/Recovery, Troubleshooting and of course the new features introduced in SharePoint 2013 and what this means to me as a SharePoint Administrator. One of my favorite things is the tips and tricks disbursed throughout that really add to the overall learning experience of the book as well as lots of step-by-steps.
This is sure to be my go-to book for SharePoint 2013 Administration.
Kudos to the authors - job well done guys.
I'f I'm supposed to have read the whole book to review--I'm not that advanced--massive sections go beyond what a developer trying to install his simple SharePoint 2013 system at home can fathom.
What I did like,again using the other book I mentioned as a reference, the step by step treatment of bypassing the "Gray" and "White" Wizards.
Even a lowly developer knows that if you just take the easy way through the wizards--nothing ends up being configured right.
Also a really good PowerShell chapter with good examples. In fact there is more explanation in that one chapter than the book I bought "PowerShell for SharePoint 2013" by Sams.
A really good chapter on "Configuring SharePoint for Business Intelligence". An a good overview of "Service Application Administration".
I think I liked the book!!
