Seems like a good book, which is why I bought it. However, it is very painful to go through the examples because pertinent details are missing. I would give this book 3 stars, but since it has required so much time with little return, I can't go there.

Since learning SP 2010 for about 2 years now, I have been continually annoyed by the many references to SharePoint 2010. Actually, there is no such product; there is SharePoint Foundation 2010, and there is SharePoint Server 2010.

The former is available for free from Microsoft, and the latter costs too much money for an average Joe developer.

With this book, you need SharePoint Server 2010 to do the examples; without it, you will not get past chapter 3!

You can read the book, but the hands-on isn't going to happen.

The book doesn't cost too much money, but spending 3 days and not learning more than just using what the MSDN knowledge base material offers is disappointing.

Gets you close, but leaves much to be desired Oct. 20 2011
By S. Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book does an OK job of introducing some of the workflow concepts and capabilities in SP2010. However, I found many of the examples to be lacking certain key steps, skipping critical parts and/or just plain wrong. This is particularly true when you get into the final section of the book about custom-coded workflows. The early SPD workflow examples are OK, but when deployed, most did not function in SP the way the author said it would. The more advanced state machine workflow just gives you some pictures and brief descriptions about how it works, but does nothing to tell you how to implement the workflow. Perhaps the author intends for the user to figure out some stuff on their own (which is a perfectly acceptable instruction technique), however there is little/no guidance for what to do when workflows don't behave as expected.

Overall, this was a frustrating read. I felt like I was learning, but kept having to overcome obstacles (some significant) to get the job done. I wouldn't recommend this back to anyone looking to learn workflow in SP2010. Of course, this is equally frustrating since (at the time of writing) there are so few resources available discussing SP2010 workflows in depth.

Good starter book April 28 2011
By Andrew Teasdale - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
New to workflows. Not a programmer. Been doing basic stuff with SharePoint for a few years. Just was given access to SharePoint 2010 and want to demonstrate what workflows can do.

Bought this book. It's a good fit for my experience level. Good combination of background and follow-along exercises. Got me to the point where I could quickly build simple workflows that interacted with data off multiple lists.

There's more to this book than I need right now. Will probably be referencing it as I progress.

Once you purchase the book, you may download an electronic version. Was handy as I travel and didn't want to lug the book.

Great starter Nov. 15 2011
By C. Harrison - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Put simply, if you're looking for a nice, high level tour of workflows, this is a perfect book. If you're looking for something that's much more in depth and covers more advanced topics, look elsewhere.

Unfortunately for me, I was looking for the latter. :-(

Very informative book June 27 2013

This book clarified some of my ideas concerning workflows and SharePoint 2010. Now I have proof of how restrictive SP2010 is out of the box.
