Book recommendations?

  Asked By: Sampat    Date: Aug 26    Category: MOSS    Views: 1099

I'd like to update our resource library with some MOSS books. There
doesn't' seem to be a whole lot out there right now. Anyone have any
recommendations? I'd like to get one book focused on overall
server/farm/MOSS admin and another more geared at using the individual
features (focused more on end-users).

I have used "Microsoft Office Sharepoint Server 2007 Admnistrator's Companion"
by Bill English. It is a good book  for administration reference; however, I
still finding many solutions to my problems either through trial and error or
posting to groups.

MS Press also has an Administrator's Pocket Consultant ~450 pages. It is
like a 'cookbook' with numbered lists and stsadm.exe commands. And, the
author is a decent gent.

something done quick.

True enough, though if you're an Amazon prime member, free 2 day shipping.

I have not heard of BookPool.com, but you might want to go to
bestwebbuys.com too. They factor in shipping/handling and sometimes taxes in
their listings of retailers. They have a fairly broad range of online
retailers from B&N to Powell's to half.com.

I've got both the Sams SharePoint 2007 Unleashed book  and the Microsoft
Office Sharepoint Server 2007 admin  Companion book that Bill of
MindSharp fame wrote.

The admin companion is a good book, with more details of what I'm
interested in.

The Sams book is good... but the real issue is the level of detail.
It's a decent general sharepoint 07 book.
