After many months of procrastination and a little “not knowing what the hell I’m doing,” my self-published eBook “Free Advice” is finally available on the Amazon Kindle. It’s a collection of all my blog posts about SharePoint 2010, but in a convenient ebooky format. As this blog is open to the world, I consider it free advice. And you know what they say about free advice, it's worth every penny you paid for it. The posts are broken down into five parts:
Battling the User Profile Service
Stuff about SQL
Posts That Didn't Go Anywhere Else
Each post gets its own chapter, its own little moment in the sun. Along with each blog post I provide background on what inspired me to write the post. Then I cover what I’ve learned since I originally published the post. Finally each chapter ends with the comments left about the post on his blog. While not always helpful, sometimes the comments are quite funny.
Since the bulk of this content is already available on the Internet, during the rare moments when my blog is available, I threw in an extra chapter to sweeten the deal. Chapter 44, "Todd’s Top Twelve Troubleshooting Tips" is all new and original for the book. It won't appear on this blog for at least 60 days. This chapter contains 12 techniques I use when trying to ferret out SharePoint problems. Plus the chapter title has alliteration and every man, woman, and child loves alliteration.
For phase 1 the book is only available through Amazon for the Kindle. You can order it from this link. Eventually it’ll be available as unDRMed PDF, MOBI, and any other format I can think of. My plan is that if someone buys it in any format that I’ll give it to them in the rest of the electronic formats. So if you buy the Kindle version now, you’ll be able to download the other versions at no extra charge when I get them ready.
If you have any requests for formats, let me know. Also, being in the US my experience with buying things online is very US centric. If you can’t get it in your area, or have any problems or suggestions, let me know. I’ll do whatever I can to make it easy for you to buy it.
If you do buy the book, please do me a favor and leave a review at Amazon. The reviews and ratings there can make or break a book. Anything you can do to help will be greatly appreciated.
Buy it at Barnes and Noble, too!
Buy PDF version directly from me.
