There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The only request I make of the author in a future edition is to provide a little more coverage on loading assemblies through the Reflection.Assembly class. This is a minor issue though because he does discuss when to use it and of course one can always consult the online Microsoft documentation for additional methods.
Some of the big pluses in the book include a "real world" view and I particularly liked the quick overview of SQL Server support and how to add the supporting snapins to the basic Powershell environment - that saved me a lot of time!
Overall, one of the better books out there on the subject for those interested in a hands-on approach.
If you know Powershell and just need a quick reference focused on Windows admin tasks, then this book might be useful.
Otherwise, the Cookbook by Holmes (O'Reilly) explains specific solutions better. The Manning book Powershell in Action is the best written guide to Powershell in general.
This book mostly just sits on my bookshelf unused.
