The paperback version currently sells for £23.03, and the Kindle version is free. Not sure if this is a pricing error.

It looks to be a promotion - the Amazon.com site also has the Kindle version free today

I imagine the instructions given within are similar to:

1) Install Office 365, selecting option to keep synced

2) Repeat step one for every device

I'm voting hot as this could be useful for a complete novice, but the claim that it's aimed at 'IT professionals' is laughable.

If you are handling a business infrastructure nothing should be done on a repeat step one type of method. Nor is migrating a business application anywhere near that easy for anything other than the smallest of businesses.

Having worked in IT for over 20 years now, I'm just going to smile and wish you a good weekend, whilst encouraging you to re-read what I said :)

And having been admin on multi-national networks for EDS and HP for a number of years, I'm going to suggest you know where you can shove your condescending comment.

I am also going to suggest that you should perhaps at least take a brief look at a book, before suggesting you know what the content of it is. I doubt any novice is interested in the cost analysis data it contains, Active Directory integration, nor network loading. The term "IT professional" does not relate to engineers, nor to admins. It relates to the IS team who are made up of people who do not generally have technical background but are responsible for the proposals that are considered with SME and multi-nationals. People who do not have the need for technical training, they just need the information on how something is going to perform, and how it is going to be integrated into the current IS platforms and existing service agreements.

If you want to argue, then you'll have to look elsewhere; there is no argument here from me. However, again, I suggest that you re-read what I wrote and try to understand that I didn't say what you seem to think I said.

So, one last time, I shall wish you a good weekend :)

I'm not arguing - I'm calling out the fact that you are condescending and comment on something with no knowledge of it.
"but the claim that it's aimed at 'IT professionals' is laughable." - IT Professionals are not generally going to be people who have a technical background, they are the people in IS Departments. This book is filled with details that are required for a successful impact study and proposal of a migration for an SME, and indeed a multi-national enterprise.

"I imagine the instructions given within are similar to:" and "I'm voting hot as this could be useful for a complete novice" - You imagine something without taking a cursory glance, and give a completely incorrect guestimate of what the book will entale. Migration is nothing to do with installation. This book would be functionally useless to a "complete novice" in any field. Yet without so much as briskly viewing the content you suggest that is all it is good for.

The title alone should suggest to any IT Engineer, Sys Admin or Professional that the book is about the migration of business practices, cost and support impact, and infrastructure impact and integration. You however, assumed immediately it was "how to install and connect to Office 365 services" In the process giving a completely incorrect analysis of the content of the book, and potentially, without being questioned, may have caused someone to have passed over the book that may have been useful to them.

The level of arrogance you displayed is unbecoming of an individual involved in any of the IT sectors, though sadly something that is all to common.

I've voted hot - and just flicking through for me (and I'm not taking sides here) being in IT and non technical I'm often coming up against where people are using 365 rather than on-premise solutions - so will be great background reading.

A perusal of Darwa's profile speaks volumes (not imagined, I did actually find some time to read it unfortunately)
Perhas too many fingers in too many pies
A " professional" never imagines in this context. They investigate.
A "professional" for over 45 years with no fingers in no pies ;-)

Have to agree with dlee1 here, this book is 672 pages, migrating to Office 365 is non-trivial for anything but the simplest of use cases.
Voted hot, thanks OP.
#11
Dlee1, you should chill a bit, just let it slide you seem to be taking great offence when you shouldn't care. Really its a free book, not worth all your words..

Its free and its 600 odd pages, so hot from me, even though as an IT professional I may find it laughable

Thanks OP :)

You're welcome!
