4.0 out of 5 stars Good on the How, not so much on the Why 17 Nov. 2009
By Lendrick VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a SharePoint guide for the non-techie, someone who wants to put SharePoint to use but finds it less than intuitive.

It leads you step by step through setting up a a SharePoint site and adding blogs, Wikis discussions, workflows etc. It explains the security model and also discuses integration with Office.

The book is well structured and the instructions are easy to follow. These are detailed, click here then click here etc, with each step explained, very good for the SharePoint newbie (like me).

All in all a good SharePoint 'how to' what it doesn't really address though is the why you would use SharePoint. Nor does it really tackle how to solve the various non-technical barriers to succeeding with collaborative working.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good reference book 19 April 2010
Format:Paperback
If you are user looking for a reference book on sharepoint, this one is pretty good. For example, if you have questions like "Can I save a document directly to sharepoint rather than uploading an existing locally stored copy" then you will find such answers in this book. Of course, you need to know what questions to ask. In other words, you probably need a bit of expereince using sharepoint before you will get a lot of value from this book. However, I think that is simply down to the nature of Sharepoint as opposed to any failing on the part of the book. It would be hard for any book to describe sharepoint in an intuitive way because the application is itself not exactly intuitive.

4.0 out of 5 stars Okay introduction to using SharePoint 2007 1 Sept. 2009
By Jerry Saperstein - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Well, I need to learn yet another platform. This it is SharePoint 2007, Microsoft's latest iteration in its evolving online initiative.

"SharePoint 2007 Collaboration For Dummies" is strictly an end-user book. It says virtually nothing about the server side of SharePoint.

The book's greatest strength and weakness are the same: it covers a lot of territory. The weakness of that approach is that in a bit more than 300 pages, you can't cover every detail about everything. Likewise, most readers will not want to wade through every detail about everything. So it is up to the author to compromise.

And author Greg Harvey does a pretty good job of compromising. He takes the reader very much by the hand and walks them through the basics of SharePoint for the end-user. It is a very elementary approach. Harvey does not talk down to the reader, but it is clear that he assumes practically zero knowledge about SharePoint and its component parts . . . which probably isn't a bad idea overall, but it can become a bit boring for those familiar with many of the concepts.

The title is a bit misleading since the collaborative aspects covered are mostly the mechanics of creating groups, permissions, libraries and the like. The book most certainly is not about project management using SharePoint 2007.

Overall, this is a good, if not excellent, book for the absolute SharePoint 2007 novice who has little, if any, knowledge of collaborative environments such as Wikis and the like. The one aspect I criticize is that it often feels like a reworked help file.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book 19 Feb. 2013
By skall - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is great for novices in SharePoint. You really don't have to read it through and through, it's more of a look up guide for that one off item you don't know how to do and, it is a great tool to keep at your desk. It is written simply enough that anyone, including the non-techie reader can understand and, I will highly recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about SharePoint.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for the basics 18 May 2013

Which is exactly what I needed it for, as a beginner SCA. Probably not what you're looking for if you're more advanced.
