Very Nice SharePoint Reference

  • Aug 11, 2010
I've really been impressed by Microsoft Press titles, they are of very, very high quality and this book fits the bill at as well. The 'Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Administrator's Pocket Consultant' is perfect for any SharePoint admin that needs a reference by their side. Online refs are great, but if you want something you can easily LEARN from, having a book as your co-pilot is still the right way to go in this reviewers opinion.

One thing that I think that might be overlooked about this book and other Pocket guides is the work that went into the ergonomics of these books. The materials feel right, and the size of the book just yells READ ME FEEL ME PICK ME UP!!! Does this matter really? Yes it does. A book that is more easily accessible is analogous to someone that is more apt to carry their 4lb laptop with a magazine footprint vs a 7lb laptop with the footprint of a 23" monitor.

If you are a SharePoint person, pick this wonderful guide up, it will help you in so many ways.
