Thanks for the great post, Ben!

You are certainly welcome, although in this case I am also doing it for the "greater good", or at least to try and foster more of an active market in the professionally written books on Lotus Software. If IBM is going to take forever to catch on that what isn't marketed doesn't sell, I guess we are all going to have to step up a bit. With my current fixation on writing and publishing, I figured this neglected segment could use a bit of focus.
Oh, and it's hard to lose when hitching your wagon to two stars like you and Marie. Makes me look good to recommend a book by you folks.

Thanks Ben! This book would be great for the help desk in any organization as well!

@Marie - That's a good point actually, although I'd love companies to take a proactive view at how to best utilize the software they have. (I know, I sound like every Lotus Notes/Domino developer since the dawning of the Notes age.)

I must concur with the message of the post. I've typically worked at large organizations, and most have had at LEAST one other app to address functions that the already-owned Sametime handled very nicely. I bought the book and have it on my home desk... reading bit by bit and already learned a thing or two -- even after thinking I knew ST quite well!

I bought it a few months ago - and learned stuff from going through it.

Is there an electronic version available via amazon or the Apple store?

You can buy an ebook directly from Packt https://www.packtpub.com/ibm-lotus-sametime-8-essentials-a-users-guide/book
I am too lazy to look up Apple and Amazon for you but Packt has free shipping for this ebook in UK, US, Europe and selected Asian countries (LOL).
