If you're working with SQL Server, chances are pretty high that you already realise that your future involves SharePoint as well.
Fellow Australian MVP Ishai Sagai recently sent me a copy of his new book SharePoint 2007 How-To.
I have to say I really enjoyed it. It does exactly what the title suggests. I haven't read any other books in the "How-To" series before but I liked the format. Ishai spends a little time with SharePoint basics and then presents a series of chapters on the main aspects of the product. In each chapter, he presents a series of things you commonly might need to do when working with the product and shows you how to accomplish each, step by step. This makes it a very practical book for those who don't spend their entire working hours with SharePoint. As a bonus, the writing style is easy to follow.
