My intention is to set up a SharePoint installation as an ECM, not as a general web site so I'm particular interested in the ECM part of the book. It lacks many details how to configure SharePoint as an ECM for handling of formal documents with different identification series etc. Other example, SharePoint 2013 for Dummies is weak on Content Types. But you can't get everything in 366 pages. If you are looking for information of weakness of SharePoint and how to work around them, you will have to look elsewhere. (I haven't found that perfect SharePoint book yet.) SharePoint 2013 for Dummies is still a readable book.
Edit: The search chapter is a good user introduction. I have re-read the book and unfortunately, the new impression is that the book is more something produced by the Microsoft marketing department than from an independent author with major SharePoint experience intending to help new SharePoint implementers. This is especially true about the cloud solution. There is apparently not a single advantage with an on-premise solution according to the author. The on-premise description about SharePoint 2013 structure (farms, web applications, site collctions sites) is scatterd and confusing; much better described in other books.
As an example, I assumed that there'd be at least an explanation of how to install/get access to SharePoint for Office 365, which is mentioned many times in the book. And that the explanation would appear early on in the book. Bad assumption on my part. The information's nowhere to be found. Mr. Withee seems to assume that all his readers already HAVE access to the product. Bad assumption on his part.
The book may become more useful once I've figured out (on my own, no help within these pages) how to get access to SharePoint. Until then I'll skim it to see what's covered and where, but reading it closely isn't worth the time it'll take.
