New book: Re-Imagining Productive Work with Office 365

This interesting new book from Michael Sampson provides a great overview of how to use Office 365. There is a free excerpt which you should read anyway.

Office 365 is Microsoft’s cloud-based uber-productivity and collaboration service. It’s the place where new innovations are introduced to the market, before they are incorporated into on-premises offerings (if at all). It’s an incredibly diverse offering, promising many possibilities. This book explores eight core opportunities for using Office 365 to improve performance – providing clear guidance on how to think about Office 365, and how to mix the technical capabilities with essential behavioural approaches and business strategies.
