With the release of the 2007 Sharepoint (MOSS) product earlier this year, there is bound to be a multitude of books & reference material – including those “teach yourself in 21 days” style (or even Sharepoint-for-dummies ?!?)
My favourite publisher is definately Wrox books, with their “Programmer To Programmer” series. I think I’ve got 4-5 of their red books – including an old SQL 7.0 book – and ASP.NET 1.1.
Some great reading ahead – will have to save some $$. Luckily, most of these books are pre-release – scheduled for June 2007

1. Getting Started with Microsoft Office SharePoint Server.
2. Working with SharePoint Lists.
3. Working with SharePoint Libraries.
