Don't expected too much on SPS-CMS. I bought the book and it seems to me that is very well written and address a lot of interesting (advanced) issues. But Relating to SPS its funny if you browse the SPP newsgroup you will find a lot questions without an answer:
1) WEBDAV support
2) QueryEx is not returning custom properties, and why MSFT samples and this book don't show an example of that.
3) IF you use Query, you need to parse XML content, and you will find nice things like for example unexpected double UTF-8 enconding.

There are a few bugs and issues that are not addressed in day to day problems.
Meanwhile after the silence in the newsgroup and delay of this book, i manage to solve each dificulty.
but i do not understand why SPP info is so limited.

but in the overall the book is very good, like the first one. Sometimes we expected too much.

Hi Tiago

Thanks for the feedback! The book's primary focus is on MCMS with some topics on MCMS-SPS integration techniques. It doesn't discuss SPS in-depth. Actually, when writing the book, the question of whether to include more SPS material popped up frequently. Eventually, we decided that being an extension of the first book, the "Advanced" book should focus more on MCMS. Otherwise, we'd end up writing 2 books in 1 :-)
