He works as a Technology Consultant for Logica in Finland, having spent all but one year of his working life living and working in various European countries outside his native Britain.

He has continued to be active in SharePoint newsgroups and (now) forums, mainly for Windows SharePoint Services for both versions 2.0 and 3.0. He has worked on the Ask the Experts stand at several Microsoft European conferences over the years. He was an early beta tester for both Office 2003, including WSS 2.0, and Office 2007, including WSS 3.0. This is Mike’s first full book. He has earlier written a chapter of a book that was a joint effort by a number of SharePoint MVPs.

Suppose you had never heard of SharePoint before, but you had some computer background, as a sysadmin or programmer, and you picked up this book. You wanted to quickly find out what exactly SharePoint does. The irony is that there appears to be no clear section around the start of the book that says this. As the Introduction says, the book is for beginners in SharePoint 2007. But what does it do? The first chapter (called Hour 1) talks about the history of the product. Yet to a complete beginner, much of this has little meaning. The details in this chapter are too fine grained for the beginner. So let's go back to the Introduction. We see statements like this - 'Two main products fit the SharePoint 2007 description: Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 (WSS 3.0) ...'. If I am a beginner, this does not mean anything to me. It just adds noise. Now in the last section of the Introduction, there is a precis of each chapter. If you know nothing about SharePoint, here you can try to glean some kind of synopsis about it. But this is suboptimal. Better would have been to go back to the very start of the Introduction. Instead of commencing with the author describing his experience with an unknown (to the reader) product, it would have been better to describe in 1 paragraph the product. Not its history, nor current adjacent offerings. Just in plain terms what it does right now. The reader needs to be motivated to keep reading, so she needs to be told at the very start. Given that missing first paragraph, then yeah, the rest of the Introduction could probably stand unchanged. This would also be in keeping with the Sams 24 Hours series. Books in this series strive to be as simply written as possible, to garner a broad technical audience.
