I gave two stars for those who know nothing about Teams and are just getting started.
A better approach can be had by getting some of the available quick reference aids available on Amazon (much less expensive). Those coupled with with the public Microsoft training classes are a more effective method to get up to speed quickly.
As someone who is familiar, but not an expert with teams, I appreciated the overview. However, I wanted more information about sharing and collaborating. While she does talk about screen sharing in Chapter 18, she does not discuss how to collaborate on a document in real-time during a video meeting, which is possible by the way. In this case, you DO NOT share your screen. And then, she does not discuss how to edit and coauthor. You can edit in teams, in the browser version, and the desktop version. And you will both see each other's indicators in all these platforms. You can then converse with each other while you are writing together. To tell you the truth, I have not found any source that really explains co-authoring from within teams.
While the collaborating/co-authoring piece is missing--which is important--the overview is thorough and provides Team newbies with the important language they need.
Thankfully, this book made Microsoft Teams a lot less overwhelming and intimidating. Every aspect is carefully explained and made accessible from the Teams terminology to how to use it both internally with your company and externally. The book goes into great detail about how Microsoft Teams works with small, medium and large organizations. It is an essential read for anyone working with Microsoft Teams. Worth the money!
