I just had a quick look at this book.
It captures a lot of the information required for PMs to use SharePoint effectively. Since its step by step based, will be very helpful for non-IT PMs also. Even for those existing users of SharePoint also, there are some tips. Looks like its worth the money we pay.

1.0 out of 5 stars A simpe book that was a waste of money.... Oct. 30 2009
By David Rhoa - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Like some of the people that have posted here, I saw the title and the fact that it was from O'Reilly and thought this may be an enlightening book both from a PM standpoint and from a heavy SharePoint user. I cannot express the level of my disappointment. I did not find one useable concept in this entire book.

If you have a trace PM knowledge, and the slightest amount of SharePoint experience, this book will seem elementary at its most in-depth point. You can get the exact same depth of knowledge from the simple demo videos on Microsoft SharePoint site.

Cannot stress enough what a waste this is. You will not get anything out of this book if you already know how to move web parts around, and use document libraries. It is that simple.

Stay away.

3.0 out of 5 stars A basic book Nov. 13 2008
By Sean Earp - Published on
Format: Paperback
When I saw the title of the book, and the fact that it was from O'Reilly, I picked it up the day it came out. I had high hopes that I would learn some excellent tips on managing projects in SharePoint. To be fair to the author, the book does exactly what the title says... it shows you how to create a Project Management Information Systems site with SharePoint. Maybe my expectations were too high as to what I would learn.

Unfortunately, I don't think I learned anything new from the entire book. The book basically walks you through creating a project management site on sharepoint, tracking risks, assigning tasks, adding a calendar, etc. You could save the effort and just download the free Project Tracking Workspace template directly from Microsoft: [...]
If you are not experienced with SharePoint, then this is probably just fine for teaching you how to create a site, add web parts, and integrate with Office. If you already know what web parts are and how to synchronize with Outlook, then this is not the book for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical Uses for SharePoint - Finally April 29 2009
By Kevin Hughes - Published on
Format: Paperback
I've worked with the SharePoint product line for almost 10 years and I think it is growing into a fabulous platform for collaboration and communication. It is so full of features, options, and capabilities that many of the users I've worked with in the past have just given up for being completely and utterly overwhelmed. There are many books, training classes, blogs, web sites, etc. that will tell you "How to" do things in SharePoint. But, try to find resources on "What do I use it for" and you'll be amazed at just how few results you can find that actually tell you anything.

Dux has done a great job in giving a practical example of an "every day" use of this wonderful product. I thought the book was very easy to follow with a good mix of project management methodology and theory along with a healthy helping of how to apply it to SharePoint. The workshop exercises were easy to follow - even for my most techno-challenged PMs. And it reminded them a couple of times that they needed to actually follow good PM methods they had "forgotten".

In all, I recommend this book to anyone that uses, administers, designs, develops, or architects in the SharePoint world. Even if you don't learn anything about SharePoint or Project Management, it is a great resource to show to others.

I also hope this serves as an example of what is really needed in the SharePoint arena - a gap other authors will hopefully fill - Practical uses for SharePoint.

Thanks, Dux.
