Just like a real cookbook that contains recipes for food, Lee's book contains more than 430 recipes for PowerShell.
If you want to cook togheter a new user in Active-Directory, check out recipe 26.7 or if you want to Import alot of users, turn to recipe 26.8. As a matter of fact,
there are 24 different recipes available just for Active-Directory. If your interested in the Windows Registry, check out recipe 21.1 to 21.16,
and if you want to learn the fundamentals of PowerShell you have an entire Chapter full with recipes that you can use.
The 2nd edition adds Chapters and recipes around the new features PowerShell 2.0 such as: Remoting, Event Handling and much more.
Each recipe includes a short description of a 'problem' followed by the PowerShell code that solves the problem.
Lee has also included a 'Discussion' part in each recipe that provides an in-depth explanation of the recipe.
I would recommend this book to complete beginners, IT-Pros, Developers. In fact, I would recommend this book
to anyone who uses Windows PowerShell. It's that good.
The kindle versions TOC is sparse at best, and the book itself is obviously laid out for print. Honestly, it would have been better to have bought the regular text.
--Edit-- + 1 star and see below
Have been using this on and off for 3 months. The fundamental initial spark of anger at the company for providing a poorly adapted kindle version is still valid; however, in light of other Power-shell books I've recently seen in print and kindle it seems to be a reoccurring theme.
Did not have this much trouble finding good resources with Java or VBScript; however, it seems that Powershell has found itself at the mercy of textbooks that are available.
Still highly recommend the Text version.
but in the powershell area... not so much
its not that the book is bad, just not great
if it was me i would wait to catch it on a good sale
