Format: Paperback
I've been struggling with the instructions in Chapter 3, there are missing sections, items that are mentioned once and then never mentioned again (or missing instructions on how to implement). P44 references a Master ID, and a New Hire Task Status List, and the screenshot following contains no Master ID, and a reference to a New Hire Task Statuses custom list created earlier (when?).
Later chapters are just as bad, you can't trust the instructions. I'm quite upset I paid money for this. It also wasted my time. It certainly won't help me create a solution, too much is missing.
Obviously no one tested the solutions in the book before it went to press. And, why aren't there clear steps for implementing these solutions? I can't tell always what is a comment and what is a step. Ug.
Please review the book's forum detailing the issues with it on Wrox before you buy.

Don't buy this book. Dec 28 2011
By bighamp - Published on
Format: Paperback
Don't buy this book. Beginning in chapter 3, the author begins to make major errors and has major omissions. It is impossible for even an experienced developer, such as myself, in Windows Workflow and Sharepoint to follow the instructions and complete the examples. If you go to the Wrox site and look at the forum for this book, you will see 10 major complaints. No one on the forum could get past chapter 6 because of all the errors. Dispite the complaints made in the Wrox forum, the author has not responded or created an errata document. Amazon should review that forum and withdraw the book. Amazon is doing a major disservice to your readers if you continue to feature this book.

Once again, FLAT OUT, everyone DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK. If you bought the book, request a refund, such as I am doing.

Can't reccomend this book Jan. 3 2012
By Nathan_IL - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I think that the author is technically savvy at workflows and Sharepoint design. But he is not a technical writer. The editors are just as much to blame here as well. There is no way this should have gone to print. The gaps are so large that it is impossible to follow most of the time. I've been able to work my way through it and there are some good points in the book, but I was expecting to be able to use this to take me over the hump and be able to develop solid workflows from it. That is simply not the case.

I would strongly suggest you find a different book on Sharepoint 2010 workflows and buy that one instead.

Can't follow the procedures Feb. 13 2012
By M. Imhoff - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you're going to include procedures in a technical book, you need to number the steps. In this case most of the steps aren't numbered, so it's unclear which sentences contain background information and which contain steps to be followed.

You also need to have someone test the procedures to make sure they work. It's obvious that nobody did this. Maybe readers who already have an in-depth knowledge of SharePoint can fill in the blanks. For the rest of us, this book is an exercise in frustration.

Sad this book sucks, relieved I'm not the only one having problems March 12 2012
By Nolan Tripp - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have been bragging to my boss that I'm going to learn workflows and that there is a real possibility that we can stop using our current capital approval system. When the examples started referring to custom lists that we previously built I thought I must have skipped that part because I was so excited to get started. Nope, they tell you to go to the right corner when it is in the left, don't bother to tell you when you should be doing something in SP or SP Designer, etc...

So disappointed. I really thought I had figured out how to avoid thousands of dollars in training and solve some real business problems at the same time.

Worst tech book EVER !!! Jan. 18 2012
By Wayne - Published on
Format: Paperback
I think they may have assumed that a savvy technical person could fill in the gaps and edited out some of the details. They left out how to complete the lessons. They referanced directions in the text that didn't exist. Obviously, nobody attempted to follow the direction in this book before it went to press.

That being said, there were some valuable insights on design limitation in SPD and how to work around them. Go figure.

Still it is really BAD
