It might take you more than 30 hours to read the 660,000+ words in Office 365 for IT Pros (2023 edition), but those hours will save you so much time in deploying and managing that the effort will be well worthwhile. After all, hiring a consultant to explain any of the topics covered in Office 365 for IT Pros will likely cost you twice what we charge for the book, so subscribing is really a great deal!

Office 365 for IT Pros is the only book covering tenant management refreshed monthly with updated information as changes appear in Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, Planner, Teams, Azure AD, and other important components. Until the next edition is published, your subscription allows you to download monthly updates to keep pace with developments in Office 365, meaning that Office 365 for IT Pros continues to be a valuable reference long after you first read it. To give some insight into the volume of changes we process, the Office 365 for IT Pros team processed over 350 major updates to chapters for the last (2022) edition.
