Professional SharePoint 2013 Administration is well written and comparatively well-organised. But the organisation is not always how I like it: I don't understand that the chapter 10 and 11 comes after the BI chapter for example. And in many places in the book, I would prefer that SharePoint 2013 is described first separately and comparisons with SharePoint 2010 and 2007 should be in a following section. The present organisation is not clear.You don't find everything in this book although it is a thick book. There is no chapter about Content Type and the term is not even in the Index; and I who thought that Content Type was one of the most important assets in SharePoint. My intention is to set up a SharePoint installation as an ECM, not as a general web site that seems to be the target audience for this book. There is chapter about integrating Office products with SharePoint although the authors never mention the term ECM (one of my main interests. The book lacks many details, for instance how to configure SharePoint to handle formal documents with different identification series etc. But the authors do discuss Word Document Information Panel and Quick Parts (on one page - the first time I see it in a SharePoint 2013 book). There are many Quick Parts issues you will run into if you are a serious user, none is mentioned in the book. Document property promotion/demotion using Quick Parts is missing from all other books I have read so far.In the chapter about working with SharePoint Designer there is a long example how to implement a complex approver workflow (another one of my main interests).
