Solid SharePoint reference and design guide

I picked up a copy of SharePoint 2003 Unleashed at TechEd and was happy that I did. It answered many of the questions that I had about the product, and included some good best practice info that I have started to use with our WSS implementation here. Only downside to the book was that it didn't go into much detail on custom programming with SharePoint, but 95% of what I needed was covered. I would definately recommend it if you were looking for a good, solid reference and design guide for a SharePoint project.

Great review book!

It is clear that Mr. Pastore has done his homework. What I liked about it was that it addressed a wide range of issues at just the right level of detail to make it compelling as well as understandable. The illustrations were straightforward and clear, the narrative tracked well with the illustrations and topics were nicely organized. Another feature I liked was that many of the chapters are readable on their own, so that the reader can pick the topics of interest without struggling throught a lot of peripheral information. Mr. Pastore's style is direct and clear - rare attributes in competing computing security books - and invites the reader to stay engaged. I highly recommend this book, not only for computing professionals, but also any computer users, at home or at work.

Looking for more of an FCL reference

Since it was so huge, I was expecting more of a reference book, and a lot of depth. But I was disappointed that it didn't touch on how to use the XML libraries or the Regular Expression libraries.

This book is just what it claims to be, a reference manual for OpenGL.If you're looking for a tutorial text on either OpenGL or Graphics Programming in general, I would recommend looking elsewhere.
