This is the 4th edition of this book and I buy every new edition that comes out. This particular edition includes major new updates for Vista, such as ADMX templates. I teach courses on Windows security at SANS and I recommend the latest version of Jeremy's GPO book at every conference to my attendees. This is one of the few must-have books for Windows network administrators.

Each edition of Jeremy's book has outdone the other. I've read each of them and I continue to learn new things every time I open it. I appreciated the expanded section on Troubleshooting and how to tap into the great new Vista tools to make t-shooting much easier. Vista security management via GP is well documented and I can't wait to dive in. Real world anecdotes and light-n-fun writing style make for enjoyable reading for a complex and deep subject like GP.

Format: Paperback
I just received this book and haven't read it yet. But I wanted to comment on the poor quality of the book itself. The paper used is very poor quality, feels like newspaper almost. Has a very recycled feel to it, and the edge is not crisp, it has a rough edge that sprays little paper dust particles everywhere whenever the book is handled. I tried to fan the pages to remove these particles but they just keep coming. I am considering returning this book and maybe buying it again later if they improve the printing process used on it.
