i just bought this kindle edition to get more details on a specific area of poweshell. Not seeing a chapter dedicated to what I was looking for.
I say to myself , "no worries , i just look at the index for my cmdlet".

The index is not listed in the table of contents. Bad omission for a tech book
Strike 1
No problem I say to myself "I'll just scroll to the back of the book"
the index , while present , DOES NOT LIST PAGE NUMBERS , only terms!
Strike 2

After shelling out $26 for this book , it looks like I'm the one who is "out"

I would love to hear from the authors on this
The sad part is I saw the concepts I was looking for in the index , but have no idea where in this book they are. I know what it takes to write a technical book , and am sure the authors tok great pains to deliver the best book they could write, unfortunately it didnot translate well to the ebook form

memo to legacy technical book publishers ... It's not enough to simply sell me an electronic copy of your content , you need to leverage the platform your publishing to.

This is a well written, easy to read and understand computer book. If you have never used PowerShell or if you need to brush up your PowerShell skills, this is the book for you. As you read through the book, PowerShell terms and concepts are presented in a manner that allows you to easily grasp the concepts presented. The book builds a foundation of PowerShell knowledge and increasingly introduces more complex topics which build upon that foundation. As you move through the book, easy to understand examples allow you to work along on your computer as you read the book. This style of presentation is what makes this book so good. If you want to learn PowerShell or just want to brush up on your skills, this is the book for you!

The number of PowerShell books are rising and coverage varies. I am currently going through many of the PowerShell books that are out there now and reading as well as reviewing the different approaches to explaining PowerShell. I have to give these authors big time credit because the actual process that they use to explain PowerShell is wonderful. Brains work in various ways but I think they have started from a solid point and then built on it in very sound steps. I noticed they present some ideas and examples early on that would help people wrap their heads around the different concepts that PowerShell delivers and also give them something they can practice and use in PowerShell right away. In my opinion this is a great book for the PowerShell beginner as well as a formidable reference to strengthen your grasp of PowerShell. Good job guys, I love when IT books are delivered this way.

This is a good book to learn PowerShell. The book has a lot of information that I do not see in more advanced books. Although it's based on PowerShell 2.0.
I was looking for help with the PowerShell basics.
Chapter 3 does a good job explaining the grammar.
Chapter 6 explains about PowerShell Remoting
Chapter 7-12 explores the administering windows with PowerShell, AD, IIS. The Desktop, and Hyper-v.
You will be using Window 2008 R2 in the lessons. This will and can help you move right along into PowerShell 3.0 and Windows Server 2011 R2 Advance topics with a clear understanding of PowerShell.

I was struggling with Powershell! I just did not understand all the little nuances. This books does a great job at explaining all the functionality available with Powershell. Now I can look at a script and understand what is talking about. And I can write scripts!!
Nice Job!!
