Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) 3.0 and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007 provide you with a rich framework for collaborative applications. Packed with practical, real-world examples, this book offers you clear instructions for implementing workflow, custom activities, and conditions into SharePoint applications. You’ll discover how to deploy workflow template files and features, program SharePoint external data exchange, send WCF messages from a SharePoint workflow, and develop custom Office SharePoint Designer 2007 actions and conditions.

I have had this book for over a year now. It is by far the most in depth workflow developer book out there. I found it heavy going but also worthwhile. It is one of the few books that covers custom workflows from a SharePoint perspective. I found that some things are missing from the book such as the Replicator activity. I suspect the book is current to WWF 3.0. I would buy an updated version.
I got this book when it first came out a month or two ago because it was one of the few books that purported to be about sharepoint and workflow programming.

This book basically seems to be a re-iteration of the available API and reads more like a laundry list of the various APIs. I don't see how it's an improvement over the API documentation available at [...].

It seems to be lacking in any real understanding of Sharepoint and how to use it effectively.

If you are considering getting this book, definitely skim it first at a local bookstore so that you know what you are getting into.

Definitely not recommended..
This book is superb. There are no other books on SharePoint Workflow out on the market that compare to the broad view and depth of this book.
If you are a experienced Workflow developer and not have any development experience with SharePoint take it. I think the author has done a good job covering the essential technology and given good examples.
For me, the book was not very helpful. It seemed overly academic at times, and then at other times it seemed to just be a very wordy rehash of what is available in MSDN.
I was looking for a book that satisfied 4 criteria: 1. Must be SharePoint 2007. 2. Must have a large section about custom workflows. 3. Must be written with Visual Studio 2008 in mind. 4. Must be able to answer the questions I needed answer to.
Had I found this book when I was just starting off with custom workflows, I would have been elated! The author has some really good bits of information and he did indeed answer the questions I needed answers to.
The downside of this book is that it is filled with lots of "fluff". Code snippets were repeated over and over and sections of text seemed to be cut from one section of the book and pasted into another.
He also goes into detail about how the Windows workflow API would be coded when, in Visual Studio with SharePoint extensions, you just drag and drop a control and it writes the required code for you. I'm sure there are those who want to know every detail about how the controls work, but I am not one of those. Interestingly, he delved deeply into the API, but skipped over setting up the environment (VS2008). It would have been nice to see how he structured the projects in VS 2008 since the layout is completely different from VS 2005.
Of the almost 600 pages, probably 250 of those were useful. I would recommend this book to those working with custom workflows, especially to those just starting off with them. Just skip a few pages now and again and you will be happy.
