I have never read a more poorly organized book. That being said this is the only book out there for certification. I almost stopped reading it to switch to another book it was so bad. The chapter summaries were written by different people and in a different format, lots of mispellings. Essentially the guy that wrote this has ADD and his editor was a lazy bastard. He does however, know SharePoint pretty intimately.
