1.0 out of 5 stars Cheaper and better with the on-line help 1 Aug 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Print out the Word documents enclosed on the CD. It gives you more useful info. As a decisionmaker, this book should be great, because it's only schratching the surface of all the good features included in this platform and software

1.0 out of 5 stars Not much here 20 July 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
"Bible" is a bit strong.. This is more like a quick start guide with a bunch of screen shots. The book shows you how to install it and work with the sample sites, but really doesn't have the depth that you need to understand what site server is capable of doing. I hope there are better books out there than this one.

1.0 out of 5 stars I bought 3 for our team - Big Waste 5 July 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Wait for the official Microsoft books! I would have if we had not needed some documentation a year ago! I should have stuck with MSDN/TechNet and trial and error.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too much added fluff 1 July 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
It is very unfortunate when the only book covering a topic does little more than reiterate the content available from the online documentation (found on the CD).
The major problem with this book is its incessant rambling. Most of the chapter introductions contain one or two sentances of useful information surrounded by paragraphs of "you can find addtional information here" and lengthy blathering on how great Microsoft was to build this product.
Many of the questions you will need answered when working with Site Server, like "how do I set content to expire" (you actually don't unless it is tagged content (ASP or HTML), but there are ways around this) are never mentioned.
Weighing in at over 950 page, the most useful part of this book is the numerous screenshots that show every tab in a dialog box and every screen of a wizard.
As a final point, this book was published in 1998, so the data content is Microsoft Access 97 and SQL Server 6.5. While this is not a major detriment, it is worthy of note for those using newer software. Unfortunately, the only other book on Site Server 3 (Wrox) is aimed at SQL Server 6.5 as well.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not bad for beginners! 23 Jun 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book is good for beginers or reviewers, but it doesn't get deeply in the P&M stuff, that is the core of Site Server. Most of the book content is available in the product documentation.

1.0 out of 5 stars Much Missing 15 Jun 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book discusses implementing Site Server (which is well documented already), and then barely touches on the most complex part - coding the Personalization and Membership functions for your site. Get the book by Wrox publishers instead!

This book gives a step-by-step overview of Site Server features and administration for those unfamiliar with Site Server. Highly recommend it for those that need to set up, administer or evaluate Site Server 3.

Going through the Site Server documentation does not give a thorough understanding of each component or their relationship to the whole. This book ties them together nicely. Don't expect to know how to code an ASP page for use with Site Server when done, or how to fully leverage Site Server. Just expect a very good launching pad. After reading this book, the Site Server documentation will make a lot more sense.
