Microsoft has recently released the “Group Policy for Microsoft Office 2010” E-Book. The book is available for download as a Word, PDF or XPS document. The target groups are primarily IT professionals, consultants and administrators. The book is explaining on 259 pages the meaning and use of group policies and gives tips on planning and configurating Office 2010 deployements. Links to additional information are also provided.
