I find myself writing wish lists about things that I want to blog about and this one just needed to get out there now.
I know some of you might be interested in new books about Office 2007 and I have a list of MOSS, WSS, VSTO, and Office books that I would like to recommend. Almost all are targeted for developers, but I included some books that may help you solve business problems even when they don’t have code samples.
