With the lack of complete code in the text of the book, I don't see how I can follow it. I see screenshots of the code under text boxes that have many more steps than what was described in the book.
All, I'm working on creating downloadable packages for the various chapters and hopefully it will all get posted soon. It will happen on a chapter by chapter basis and released here once I learn how to do that.
In all I think the book is going to be a great help because of the effort centered around understanding Sharepoint and setting up the system correctly. I just think that in the editing process a lot of this would have been flushed out if it was given to someone to try out first. When you are on the edge of being able to understand and you get to a dead end in the book, it is aggrevating.
I think a really good starting point would be showing the lists that you intended to have created and what their structure is. And in cases where the list name has changed, a cross reference is really needed. There are too many lists that are too close in name where I don't know if it is something missing that should have been created or something that is created under a different name. Page 48 is a good example - "New Hire onboarding Tasks" comes from where? for what purpose? I'm not quite good enough to be able to figure my way through it.
