You can read my full book review on my virtualization and data center blog VirtuallyMikeBrown.com.

Here's an excerpt of that review.

The amount of detail and insight into ThinApp processes and workflows included in this book seem almost overwhelming - not in a bad way, though. For someone who can appreciate the intricacies and complexities involved in virtualization, such detail is required in order to design and build reliable and useful computer systems that are as user-friendly as possible. Explanations of how ThinApp manages the varying file and folder paths within an OS is one example. For instance, the difference in operating system architectures (32-bit vs. 64-bit) and the problems presented to virtualized applications is explored along with a detailed explanation as to how the problem can be solved. This is just the tip of the iceberg that is ThinApp. How do you want your users to execute the apps? How are you going to get them to end user devices? How do you manage them once they're released? How can you update them? What about troubleshooting? All of these topics are covered in, what I mean in the best way possible, excruciating detail.

Not even 2 days ago a tweet from @thepeb informed me that the long-awaited ThinApp book was available.
Needless to say I had the ebook version on my iPad within minutes :-)
And I have been reading, and more importantly learning, since that moment.

To take away all suspense, the book is all I expected it to be, and more.

Peter does a great job explaining all the aspects of using ThinApp to virtualise your software packages. From capturing, over deployment all the way to troubleshooting.
The book is filled with tips and tricks. So even the somewhat more experienced ThinApp user will find practical information that will help him in his day-to-day use of ThinApp. I did in any case !

The Troubleshooting chapter alone is already enough justification to buy the book.

I would have wished for an Appendix on the ThinApp SDK and how to use it with PowerShell, but I guess that could be Volume 2.
And to be honest, I'm probably a bit biased on this PowerShell thing ;-)

If you're serious on using ThinApp, this volume should be on your bookshelf.

First of all I have to say that the book is very easy to read for me and this is important as I'm not a native English speaker and it is very practical. The first chapters gives you a great overview of application virtualization and the used vocabulary which is great I think. I don't like it if I'm reading a book and suddenly I've to check the product related vocabulary in the appendix or so.

As I'm working with ThinApp for years as well it was great to see how Peter does explain the fundamentals and functionality of ThinApp.

Actually with VMware ThinApp 4.7 Essentials you've everything you need as a new starter to the solution but also as an experienced user you'll find the book helpful as it gives you also deep insides into parameters and troubleshooting for example.

Especially for people who're planning to migrate from Windows XP to Windows 7 this book is valuable as they can learn about Internet Explorer 6 virtualization. This is one of the major issues during the migration process. People always think about the Windows applications compatibility, but what about the Web apps?

All in all I can say: A great read from a great colleague I work with for over 5 years now!

Bought this book before beginning a rather large & involved Thinapp project, and it was invaluable. The author explaines everything clearly and goes into great detail.
