While the main focus of this book is on SharePoint administration, you will also learn how to customize SharePoint by creating templates and using SharePoint Designer to enhance the look and feel of SharePoint sites. Microsoft MVP and author Göran Husman explores the differences between Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) and Windows SharePoint Services (WSS), helps you decide if you need only WSS or if you should also implement MOSS, and much more.

Excellent book for anyone getting started with SharePoint also a great reference for those already familiar with 2007. Göran shows that he has practical hands on experience with the product by giving really simple directions. But what I really liked was his warnings at various stages of possible issues that can arise and one should look out for. Also, he goes into detail about certain aspects of SharePoint but he does not go into the realm of detail that would be considered boring my most. Very well written and easy to follow. As someone who teaches SharePoint classes I recommend it to all of my students to purchase as a follow on to the course.

SharePoint is a monumentally large product. On top of that, the interface is web-based meaning that your normal right-click hunting, or hitting F1, won't work. Just getting started can be rather intimidating.

If the above describes how you feel about SharePoint - Buy this book and walk through it from start to finish. It won't make you a SharePoint guru, but it will get you into it, it will make you feel more comfortable with it, and allow you to move on to bigger and better things.

This book does cover a lot of ground and provides a good "first look" at the scope of SharePoint's major features. I did not find any "Try It Out" exercises that did not work as described. I would have appreciated a reference to an e-mail solution for readers who do not have thier own e-mail server domain (e.g.:
Husman is obviouly very enthusiastic about SharePoint. There are few instances where he presents the potential disadvantages of a feature. For example, the ease of creating multiple sites, libraries and workspaces could lead to multiple copies of a "master" document and the potential risk of independent updates. Some comments on the potential risks would have made a more balanced reading.

Still reading, however what I have read so far has impressed me. Starting with the first chapter that explains the features of SharePoint 3.0 and Microsoft Office SharePoint 2007. Following that are the chapters on installation and configuration of each. They detail the options with instructions on the installation of each. I hope to put this to use in the near future, still have more of the book to read and I need a machine to install it on. I recommend this book if you want to change the way your organization saves it's documents. They are stored in Microsoft SQL and can index all those documents and more.

This is the second SharePoint book I bought and once again this is the best and only book you need to deploy and engineer SharePoint Services or Server 2007. I am planning on upgrading our SharePoint 2.0 to Portal 2007 and this book gives enough information. Highly recommend this book to anyone who is in the process of deploying, engineering and supporting SharePoint Portal or Services.
