Microsoft Press Business Intelligence in SharePoint 2013

I just received my copies of Business Intelligence in SharePoint 2013. I will be signing the books and giving them away at the next SharePoint Saturday 2013 in Redmond where I am speaking.

Being an Author and writing a book is very time consuming and can be difficult since you are working with software that is going to change many time’s prior to release and you are typically the first to be writing opn the new features being released.

However, I was lucky enough to work with a few authors (listed below) who are all some of the best folks I have had the pleasure of working with, and I learned a lot about how much my writing needed to improve.

Norm Warren, Mariano Teixeira, Stacia Misner, and Scott Helmers

Our book was listed last week on the Microsoft Press Blog Site
