It has good examples in it and is very easy to follow.

If I could only have one PowerShell book, "Learn Windows PowerShell 3 in a Month of Lunches, Second Edition" would be it, especially if I were a beginner.

If you haven't used Powershell before but want to learn, I highly recommend this book.

Format: Paperback
This book contains 28 chapters and is designed to be read one chapter a day. One hour is enough time to read a single chapter and work through the re-enforcing lab exercises at the end of that chapter. This method of learning is extremely effective, especially for a beginner, which gives them consumable amounts of knowledge without overwhelming them.
In my opinion, this book is the best book on the market for someone who has no prior experience with PowerShell and wants to learn the best practices from day one, although prior experience working with at least the graphical user interface (GUI) on Microsoft Windows based workstations and servers would be helpful. This book is also beneficial for anyone already using PowerShell who wants to learn the best practices from two of the top PowerShell experts in the industry.
By the time you finish this book, you'll have a good understanding of the PowerShell help system, cmdlets, providers, objects, the pipeline, formatting, comparison operators, filtering, remoting, using PowerShell to access WMI, the new CIM cmdlets, background jobs, variables, and much more. My personal favorite chapter in this book is the one on regular expressions (chapter 24) which is a brand new chapter on a subject that wasn't included in the first edition of this book.
If I could only have one PowerShell book, "Learn Windows PowerShell 3 in a Month of Lunches, Second Edition" would be it, especially if I were a beginner. I've written a more comprehensive review of this book on my blog site at: [...]

I have just started the book, but if seems to focus on powershell commands and uses rather than scripting. If you know powershell or want to get right into scripting, then this book is not for you. This book covers a little scripting but doesn't focus on it.

Learn Windows PowerShell 3 in a Month of Lunches is an awesome book. I'm still reading so I can't say everything about it, but so far from what I can tell it help that person who knows nothing about programming and helps them understand every detail before jumping in and starts scripting. I would highly recommend this book for those who have no experience with programming yet have an interest or want to learn about PowerShell. These commands and helpful hints will help you understand how to learn the current v4 PowerShell commands in Microsoft Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8.1 plus ways to update to the latest on the platform you are using.

Great beginners book. I now have a solid foundation with powershell and I even dream about it. This book is broken up in to bite sized-chunks so you can do quick lessons. There is supplemental material online in case you can't quite conceptualize it. I really appreciate what Don Jones did with this. He made powershell accessible to the rest of us.

The pacing and exercises were never over the top, plenty of examples to reference and work with. I look forward to reading further installments from Don Jones.

The book was delivered ahead of schedule two days before the expected delivery date which was nice. Right away I noticed how easily I was able to pick up on the core concepts being explained to me. As of now I am only on chapter three, and already I feel more confident about powershell. I can not wait to read more, as this book comes highly reviewed.

Some of the labs were designed with the intended usage of a x86bit machine running Vista or Windows Server 2012, which I didn't like, but so far I haven't had any crippling issues at my work desk which is a Win7 x32 machine.

I wasn't sure if the e-book version was included with the paperback so I emailed Don Jones. He was prompt to get back to me and said that every copy does indeed come with a .pdf version, which is super nice.

Overall I am pleased with this purchase. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to learn powershell from a command line point of view. Well worth the money.

This book actually got me interested in Powershell more than searching for online tutorials, so that alone made it a favorite book.
