This book offers a comprehensive look at most of the major features contained within SharePoint 2013. The most likely readers of this book go by many names—power user, site owner, business analyst, web designer, and so forth. The book is intended for both business and technical people who need to accomplish meaningful tasks with SharePoint. It will be most useful for readers who have some experience with prior versions of SharePoint, but that is certainly not a prerequisite. Although there is some administration and development content within various chapters, this book is not aimed specifically toward SharePoint farm administration or heavy custom development; Microsoft Press has other SharePoint books
that cover those areas in depth.
