What will differentiate this book?

A lot of books have already published about SharePoint 2007 that have been pitched at end-users and at programmers, but it seems like there are fewer titles directed towards the people in the middle, the site managers who need to configure and customize the product to meet end-users' needs, but who may not have the time or the skills to do programming. Hence your book could, judging by the description on the Manning site, be a useful addition to the literature.

Unfortunately, the sample table of contents is less inspiring than the description. Team collaboration, document management, InfoPath forms, blogs, wikis, surveys; these topics have been covered already by the existing literature.

Can you tell me what your book will offer that we can't already get elsewhere, because I don't get a sense of that from the book's web page or the sample. Introductory chapter.

Please take a look at the latest TOC and sample introductory chapter, the book has undergone significant changes incorporating reviewer’s feedback. The premise stays the same, but has been flushed out with more detail and inclusion of topics that the readers were looking for. The scenario format (which can be seen in chapters 4 and beyond) is very unique to this book. It not only teaches end users how to use SharePoint, but it also helps them to understand the possible solutions that they can build.
