"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

In summary this book gave me the foundation I needed to become very productive in a few hours. Without the book my learning curve was flatter and would have taken me more time in the long run.
The command in question is "Get-EventLog -newest 20 -Log -Application" per page 29, which even a quick glance told me was never going to work. I of course thought, what the heck do I know, lets give it a whirl and it didn't work. The error, if you can't spot it as quickly, is that there is no such parameter as "-application" so the hyphen is erroneous. This was meant to be a value for the previous parameter -Log, an abbreviation of -LogName, but if you are new, as in page 29 and only a handful of examples in new, you would not likely know this. This is is a minor mistake for Joe off the street to make, but not for an educational book. This might have not even been a big deal for someone to to fall asleep on the job when proof reading and overlook on like page 290, but not page 29. I'm really hoping the rest of the examples are better, but like I said this was only on page 29 so I'm not feeling great about this purchase at the moment...
