I bought this with ken's other book, and found it invaluable too.
Powershell is tough, and this book finally covers the stuff others just skirmish.
Terrific work by Ken, and highly recommended!

This is a great guide for AD PowerShell scripting. While it doesn't rely on the ActiveDirectory module some things you just cannot do with the ADSI accelerator. Even beginners can make good use of this.
