    Comprehensive

    SharePoint 2007 is a huge topic to try and cover, but the authors (all 11! of them) do a tremendous job covering as much about SharePoint as is possible in a single book. In going through this book, I dare say there isn¿t a single SharePoint 2007 topic that isn¿t at least mentioned. In any case, it¿s certainly the most comprehensive SharePoint 2007 book that I have come across. I felt the book was well organized and easy to read. Since SharePoint is potentially a very boring subject, the authors spice up the book (and help with the clarity) by providing a lot of SharePoint screenshots that correspond with the written text. I also appreciated the standard O¿Reilly warning icons, indicating a potential point of trouble in configuring SharePoint. At the risk of simply identifying each chapter in the book, the authors take the reader through a SharePoint site from start to finish. They begin with the installation, and all that can or should be configured at that time. The discussion continues through the configuration of sites, workspaces, and libraries. While there were a few items in the book I wish received more mention, I realize this cannot be helped in a book covering as vast a subject as SharePoint. While there is a very good chapter on using the SharePoint object model, I would have liked to see much more than this. Additionally, I would have liked to see further discussion on customizing the UI of a SharePoint application. But again, that just isn¿t possible for a subject as vast as this. While there are a few topics I would have liked more detail on, this is a excellent book on SharePoint 2007. Through the text, the reader is taken step-by-step through all practical aspects of a SharePoint 2007 installation and configuration. I would highly recommend this book for SharePoint administrators as well as portal admins.

    Horribly written and organized.

    Authors jump over details, figure references are several pages before the figures themselves. Figures are straight screenshots that are too small to read, with no image notation to highlight the part being referenced by the text. Many functions don't have screen shots leaving the reader to guess at how the navigation to the screen shown was accomplished. Worse than trying to learn it with Microsoft's online references.
