4.0 out of 5 stars very good but could be better 16 Mar. 2014

My feeling is that some of the areas should have been treated in more depth. You get an idea of how Sharepoint 2013 works, but to really work on it you would need to get another manual. It is like an introduction to the product and show its possibilities. Very good. But I got a second one to learn the Administration of Sharepoint 2013.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good learning tool 31 Mar. 2014

Excellent for beginners. Good learning process though it assumes you have site administrator permission level which some newbies may not get or understand. This could lead to some frustration. But overall, it is great for first time exposure and learning your way around SP!

Microsoft has made several changes to SharePoint 2013 and this book, as its name suggests, describes it "Plain and Simple". Very easy read with excellent color illustrations to walk you through the new features and changes in this new version.
