Contrary to the previous review, its seems extremely shallow. I have learnt almost everything it covers from 'playing' with SharePoint. it does not address the areas where I am having trouble, or where I have learnt the hard way.
Example: Document workspaces. Book goes through the mechanics. It doesn't warn you that there is no clue in the original library that a document has had it's own document workspace created (you can even create another one for the same document) or that someone may change the original while you have one in the workspace unless you check it out (inexplicably, this is not automatic) or that publishing back to the original location can overwrite someones changes etc
Example: Meeting workspaces. You can learn all this just by trying it out. I want to know what you do with such a workspace once it's created. Does everyone have to sit with this workspace to partake in the meeting? How would you print pout agenda, action items, decisions, etc in one document?
Example: searching the site. Not in main book. Extra material on CD. But this does not cover categorisation, or why the site I use doesn't allow me to search library content.
Should be sold as a good starters guide for beginners. I suppose that's what the title says. But knowing the reputation of some of the authors, I expected the steps to go further.

Absolutelty excellent book, i had never touched Sharepoint before this book and within two weeks i had 4 sites up and running. This book shows you all there is to know about designing a site in Sharepoint. Concentrating on web parts in good detail for even the most novice of users to get to grips with.
I have never looked at a Step by Step book before but if they are all as good as this then i will be definatley looking at others.

easy to understand book enabled us to create a sharepoint server and populate and use it. Now have upgraded to a newer version and used this book to refer to.
