Mr. Redmond is an excellent authority on Microsoft Exchange, and the depth of his knowledge is apparent in this book. However, I did not find the book very well written or easy to read. On the cover there is a bullet that says, "Supremely organized, packed with expert advice." The second part of that is true.

My own background is someone who has worked extensively with Exchange from version 5.5 to 2003, but I skipped 2007 and wanted to get up to speed on 2010. If that describes you as well, this definitely is not the book for you; suggestions at the end of this review. If you are familiar with Exchange 2010 already and simply want to learn more, and don't care how the information is presented or even particularly what you're going to learn about, you might enjoy this book. Many other reviewers clearly have.

Mr. Redmond, by his own acknowledgment early in the book, took a "shotgun" approach to writing this text. He didn't have a particular strategy for what to write about and in what order. He sort of jumped in and did a brain dump, and wrote chapter headings as they sort of made sense. But to be sure, you'll find things in strange places, and if you overlooked his comments on his writing strategy you will be scratching your head wondering why various tidbits are where they are.

In that the book is a brain dump, it does capture a tremendous amount of information. But if you're trying to learn about Exchange 2010 without a background in it, the order of things makes no sense. Chapter 3, for instance, is all about Exchange Management Shell, the PowerShell command line method of administering Exchange. And it goes into a fair amount of depth. But at this point in the book we have not discussed Exchange architecture at all.

I purchased the book to be a reference to questions I had concerning moving from an older version of Exchange to the current, including SP1. Just the weight and girth are formidable, but what's more impressive is that it's not filled with pictures or illustrations to make that girth (there are necessary illustrations). It's written in a straight-forward manner; info that is important gets an "Inside Out" box that stands out so you can't miss it.

The index is very good and has, so far, contained every word and acronym that I've needed to look up - which is important for me since I have so much to learn.

The author is obviously very accomplished and knowledgeable, and he is able to pour out that information in a very legible manner. This book is everything that I wanted and more.

This is the book I've been looking for, regarding Exchange 2010. I was looking forward to other Exchange 2010 books published by other Presses, and when I finally was able to buy them, I was let down - as the books came up short on material. The MS Press Self-Paced Training Kit - Exam 70-662, was decent (for a change) and the "Exchange Server 2010 Administration: Real World Skills for MCITP" was not bad, but this Exchange 2010 Inside Out is by far the definitive material.
I hope I don't offend anyone by writing this, but this book is to Exchange 2010, what the "MS Exchange 2003 Advanced Administration" by McBee was to Exchange 2003.

If you're weighing your options, get this book first.

I bought this recently as I was upgrading my company's Exchange environment from 2003 to 2010. I've worked with Exchange Server since 1997 or so, so I'm already familiar with the concepts behind it and how to perform basic tasks, and mostly wanted to brush up since I'd never worked with 2010 before, and hadn't used 2007 for a couple of years. I wanted something that would help guide me through the upgrade process without being a "click here, then click here" workbook that tells me how to do something but doesn't teach me anything. Since then, I've kept it handy as a reference guide

What I like most about this book is that it's written by and from the perspective of someone who does this every day. There's enough detail on what's important, but features that most administrators don't use are either glossed over or omitted entirely. It also strikes a good balance between providing information for administrators of larger multi-server environments and smaller single-server setups like mine. If you're looking for a book on Exchange 2010, look no further: this is the book you want.

Tony's been writing books about Exchange for at least 15 years - and this one is definitely the best he's done to date. That's not to say the others weren't good, but this book has built upon the previous works to become an example that's very hard to beat.

This isn't trying to be a book that explains every single step in every single action you might want to take when configuring Exchange 2010. There are others that take that approach if you need it.

Where this book really excels is in helping you understand both the capabilities of the complex beast that is Exchange 2010, and also comprehend the rationale behind why much of the functionality works the way it does. Tony's many years of experience of the evolving product give a depth and backdrop to the writing that is unmatched in most other authors, and it is this characteristic of his writing that for me brings real value to the book. He isn't just knowledgeable about Exchange 2010, he's wise as well - so if there are shortcomings in a particular feature area he'll share that with you, and recommend how you might work around them.

The layout is clean, neat, and readable, and there are just enough screenshots to inform without reducing the level of useful technical content. As an added bonus, my paper copy came with a code to access and download an electronic copy of the book, so searching for keywords or technical issues couldn't be easier.

If you're serious about gaining a thorough understanding of Exchange 2010, then this book would be number one on my list of recommendations.
