I've read a number of "Learn X in Y lessons" books and they all seem to start out fine and quickly get into matters I don't have interest in, or get far too deep too quickly to really gain understanding. Within the first few chapters of this book, I was "learning how to learn" Powershell. By fully explaining and exploring the robust help system from the beginning, I was quickly able to solve command line problems I was having without needing to refer back to the book. Gaining this early understanding helped make the more complex challenges easier to break down and resolve. The lab examples are also real-world relevant and resemble problems I need to solve on a regular basis. I strongly recommend following along in a Powershell window as you're reading.
If you are starting out on PowerShell and new to scripting like myself, this book is a must.
I posted on there asking about the book and one of the MVPs there contacted Don Jones and they are in the middle of updating the site so that is why it is down now. I'll give 5 stars when the site is up. Again it is a very good book to learn powershell if you are just getting into it. There are other resources on the web to find the answers that you need.
The site is up and has all the content as promised. One thing I will say is that he drills the help files into your head until you are sick of it but he is 100% correct. Now that I can understand what the help file says instead of the usual MS cryptic speak, it is so much easier. All the examples and labs work together to the point were i feel confident in just writing a script and troubleshooting it myself instead of googleing(don't know if that is a word yet) for an hour.
This is a beginners book but it gets you the foundation to go were you need to go with Powershell.
Other than that, a good book.
