Well, I'm very disappointed. Especially when I see Mike Minasi as an author. This is the author who wrote _THE_ authoritative guides such as Mastering Windows NT4 Server (all 7 editions!!) and Mastering Windows Server 2003. I expected much more from this book.
This book read more like those books of yore of Mastering Windows 98 and Windows 98 for Dummies. This book is nothing more than how to do everything with Windows Vista except configuring it for a business environment. While the authors do touch on Group Policy here and there, there's nothing really business oriented to be found in any depth in this book.
Bottom line, if you have Windows Vista Home, Home Premium, or Ultimate at home (or have Vista Business but don't want to know how to configure it for a business), then this book is for you. If you generally don't know much about Windows, this book is for you. If you want to administrate Windows Vista in a business environment, this book _IS NOT_ for you!
Sorry Mark, I generally love your books and writing, but this one is a loser. Like I said, should've been titled "Windows Vista for Dummies".
As I got deeper into the chapters, I found the material becoming less detailed than I needed. I would recommend the book for anyone new to Vista who wants to be exposed to all the new features. I wouldn't recommend it for someone who needs more technical information, because you will come away wanting more. This isn't a book you'd consult to solve problems, but it is a good overview of the new Vista OS.
I will be plowing into the Microsoft Resource Kit next for more depth.
