My book titled SharePoint 2013 – First Look for Power Users was released this Monday (10/15/2012). Great to see it finally in production. Currently, it’s available at the publisher’s site:

Hopefully, soon it will start showing up on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Apple bookstores as well.

This book is designed to be a practical guide to jump start the reader’s learning about the specifics of SharePoint 2013. The focus is on Team Sites and MySite – not Publishing Sites – and specifically the visual elements of the sites. The book is filled with images and embedded videos to give the reader a complete visual understanding of what to look for in the new release and how each area operates.

Topics covered:

  • Overview of SharePoint 2013 Team Site
  • Security access management
  • Branding sites using Themes
  • Understanding SharePoint Apps
  • Managing documents in Team Sites and MySite
  • List management
  • Searching within site collection
  • Social features of SharePoint 2013

This is an enhanced eBook and will work best on eReaders with image viewing and video watching capabilities.

This book’s target audience is the Power User of SharePoint. In my opinion, a Power User is more advanced and empowered than an end user, but is not a hardcore developer or an IT administrator. Having said that, end users, developers and IT professionals can also greatly benefit from the knowledge in this book to prepare themselves for what’s coming in the next version of SharePoint. Here’s the link again for the book:
