SharePoint 2010 books

I must have trawled through 10 SharePoints 2010 books of late from various publishers Sams, Wrox, Microsoft, Addison Wesley and Apress. I have been asking the question, how do I go about thinking about programming this beast? I want the 50 foot object model and the approach to programming – so testing would be an added bonus.

Clearly, few people are programming up sites – not. I suppose I can keep going to the SDK or blogs, but again, I haven’t been able to get the right view from these. I have been working with Devs who really know their API. But they too have been struggling to explain to me SharePoint. I have worked with various CMS systems over the years and would have thought that I would have picked it up easier. Oh, well perhaps it is me!
