Title : Getting Started with SharePoint 2013
Author : Robert Crane
Summary :This book explores the very first steps of SharePoint 2013, using a standard team site. It starts with an explanation of how to use document libraries, calendars and some other type of libraries or lists. Then, it finishes with the search and the recycle bin.
Book Review :For the price of the book, there was not risk in having a look and reading the book. Unfortunately, it stays at the very basic level of the usage of only some of the library and list types. Yes, it explains how to upload a file, how to recover a file from the recycle bin, but, from my point of view, most of the things described in this book can be discovered by a user exploring the platform. Moreover, it stays explaining some of a team site features. In my opinion, this book can be skipped, and a reader that wants to explore SharePoint 2013 should rather go directly with a book like SharePoint 2013 for Dummies (which I haven't read yet) that will go beyond what Getting Started with SharePoint 2013 goes.
