5.0 out of 5 stars Allround book on Sharepoint 30 Jan 2012
Format:Paperback
The Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Power User Cookbook is an excellent book which is aimed specifically at getting things done in SharePoint without requiring development or hardcore administration skills. And I must say I like it.

This book is a must have reference guide for business power users who use SharePoint in their daily job but don't need to know all the background about how SharePoint exactly works from a system perspective.

It is however also very useful for SharePoint administrators who need to perform common SharePoint tasks as well as for SharePoint business analysts and project manager who need a more practical view on how to accomplish things in SharePoint.

It contains over 70 recipes going from very basic tasks such as creating site columns, securing objects, etc ... to more complex tasks such as creating external content types, creating dashboards using PerformancePoint Dashboard designer. Each of these recipes contains a number of different sections:
*Getting ready - explains for which version of SharePoint it works
*How to do it - step by step guideline about how to configure things in SharePoint
*How it works and There's more - background information
*See also - reference to related recipes.

Each recipe consists of a limited number of pages containing the bare essential for getting your SharePoint task done. Great job from the authors

The Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Power User Cookbook is the kind of book to give to the people in the business that use SharePoint to get their work done.

This book does not start with a background history of SharePoint, doesn't fill out pages with sales figures, and doesn't confuse the target audience with discussions on technical topics such as the hierarchical way SharePoint works.

Instead, this book goes straight into getting things done. The first chapter delves straight into using SharePoint to learn the very fundamentals in a couple of lessons, then continuing on to provide a total of 70 easy to follow `recipes' which walk you through solving every day business problems.

Each recipe is well structured in the same format, starting with what environment or software the recipe has been tested on, followed by a step by step guide on performing that task, complete with a well balanced number of relevant screenshots. There is then a brief discussion explaining what is happening, or what SharePoint is doing as that recipe is carried out, written in the context of SharePoint terminology to familiarise yourself with the workings such that you can apply that learning to more scenarios. Finally there's an expansion on what else SharePoint can do related to that recipe, and a selection of recipes that are related in some way to the current recipe.

This formula is repeated for every one of the 70 recipes, allowing the reader to simply skip to the recipe that they want to try out at any time.

The writing style throughout is simple to read, with a distinct absence of lengthy paragraphs. This allows the content to be quickly read and absorbed by the user, without being drawn in to technical and thoughtful discussions about a particular topic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book for the SharePoint end user 11 Dec 2011
Format:Paperback
This book is great for the SharePoint end user. I kind of think of it like the top 70 FAQs about SharePoint found all in one place.

Although this book is a little out of context for the books I usually read about SharePoint, I was looking for a book to recommend to the user's of the SharePoint 2010 environments I working. I am currently upgrading a 2007 environment to 2010, so the users are going to need a good reference for common tasks. This book fits the bill.

The book is broken down into different topics by chapter. The chapters are listed below.
Chapter 1: Getting Started--SharePoint Essentials
Chapter 2: Working Together--Using SharePoint to Collaborate
Chapter 3: SharePoint as the Data Hub--Storing and Integrating Data
Chapter 4: SharePoint Document Management Deep Dive
Chapter 5: Getting the Message Out--Using SharePoint to Communicate
Chapter 6: Where's My Stuff?--Finding Things with SharePoint
Chapter 7: Gaining Insights--Using SharePoint for Business Intelligence
Chapter 8: Automating Business Processes--Recipes for Electronic Forms and Workflows
Appendix: Joining the Dots--Creating Composite Applications

The individual topics are far too many to list but to give you an idea of what the chapters look like I have listed two of them below.

Appendix: Joining the Dots--Creating Composite Applications

The individual topics are far too many to list but to give you an idea of what the chapters look like I have listed two of them below.

Chapter 2: Working Together--Using SharePoint to Collaborate
'Introduction
'Creating a Team Site
'Adding users to a Team Site
'Adding a new page to a Team Site
'Adding a link to the Top link bar of a Team Site
'Adding a slide library to share PowerPoint slides
'Adding a slide to a presentation from a SharePoint slide library
'Creating and tracking a discussion item
'Managing a Team Site Calendar with Outlook 2010
'Creating a task and assigning it to another user
'Using the datasheet to bulk-edit tasks in a task list
'Managing a SharePoint task list in Outlook 2010
'Creating a SharePoint contact list and connecting it to Outlook 2010

Chapter 4: SharePoint Document Management Deep Dive
'Introduction
'Uploading an existing document to a document library
'Uploading multiple documents to a document library
'Creating a new document in your My Site
'E-mailing a link to a document in SharePoint
'Downloading a copy of a document
'Creating an alert on a document to be notified when it is updated
'Requiring users to check out a document before they can edit it
'Enabling versioning on a document library
'Publishing a major version of a document
'Restoring a previous version of a document
'Enabling content approval on a document library
'Take SharePoint documents offline using Outlook 2010
'Co-authoring an important document
'Use content types to store different types of document in the same document library

Each topic begins with a Getting Ready section that tells you which SharePoint version the task can be done on. It then has a How to do it section that explains how to accomplish the task at hand. This section not only contains written instructions but also usually includes detailed screenshots.

Then there is a How it works section that explains how the steps taken work behind the scenes. There is then a There's more section and a See also sections that provide more information about the topic and other resources to read.

The book does a really good job of combining the right amount of written instructions, screenshots, and background on each topic. Some books go way overboard with screenshots, or do not provide enough of them. This book has just the right amount.

The author's writing style makes for an easy read. They do a good job of making the topics understandable.

All in all I highly recommend this book to SharePoint end users.
