We always felt Terpstra was there with us, for every configuration line. It was like having our own personal tutor. I always take his book to every client that uses Samba. Additionally, Terpstra does something most authors dont, he keeps his documentation up to date. When we were doing our first implementation, he just released the update that morning; we downloaded it, printed it, and implemented it. Now, to me, that is cutting-edge technology at its best.

A cook learns to follow a recipe until he has mastered the art. This is your cookbook to successful Windows networks.

I could not have completed this project without the Samba-3 by Example book—it brings dry, lifeless man-pages down to the reality IT support people face.
