Format: Paperback
I have this on my desk at all times. It acts as a great reference for using vSphere which can be cumbersome at times. The book takes a complex subject and makes it easy to understand. The index was unusually helpful unlike most tech books these days. When I needed to look up a topic I would look in the index and it would point me right where I needed to be.

I downloaded the PDF "ESX and Vcenter Server Installation Guide" but I needed more information. As background I'm bringing up a test of a cluster to run a web server and am using the trial VMware software. I had no VMware expereince.

Another IT person in my firm had gotten the VMWare cookbook

http://www.amazon.com/VMware-Cookbook-Real-World-Guide-Effective/dp/0596157258/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1290616409&sr=8-1

and found it to be less than useful. Normally I'd get an O'Reilly book, but forewarned I looked around Amazon and got this book instead. It has been by my side since then, and I've used it a lot. It helped me setup Vcenter Vserver and to create datacenter and cluster objects. In short, it was a great help in a real world case where I didn't have the budget or inclination to hire a consultant.

This is a great book for beginners. The book has all the quick reference material that you need instantly. It's an indispensible guide that "newbies" will appreciate. My copy is already dog-eared. The book will provide answers to basic vSphere 4 questions and encourage you to dive deeper into more advanced vSphere features. It's a great starter book for your library. After absorbing the information in this book you will be ready to explore in-depth, more technical resources.
