This book offers very little assistance with helping you learn Powershell. The does not explain the language only general concepts. It does provide some examples but if you are looking to use Powershell to build something I suggest you try another book.

This book I find to be a mixed bag. On one token, the instructional material to get you up to speed quickly in scripting is a weak spot in the book. They delve into commandlets and the environment, but after this, still not sure how to have do some basics, such as retrieving variables inside loops.

Some parts that I like about the book was the VBScript-PowerShell Comparison, script signing, and PSSHell Kiosk Desktop. On the topic of script signing, the author goes into detail, including how to request certificates. The Kiosk material was really way cool, locking down a desktop GUI that only accesses scripts you create. Lastly, the VBScript to Powershell was valuable, but much of this type of material is online at Microsoft's Script Center.

This is an EXCELLENT book that provides very clear and concise explanations and samples on the use of PowerShell! I am somewhat of a programming notice and was able to pick-up recommendations here / there from this book, and was so excited I shared the book with one of my co-workers (who is a programming guru) and he was able to take some of the examples and was able to tweak them and leverage them in our business. So for notice thru expert, this is the BEST single source for PowerShell info!!!

I bought this book to start learning PowerShell. I have a lot of experience using Linux and UNIX shells but none in Windows. This book is actually pretty descent at teaching at the beginning level. It is hard initially for a UNIX person to understand the object oriented programming because they mostly want to do text manipulation but that isn't what PowerShell does. It has helped me along in my PowerShell journey. I'd recommend this for people trying to learn PowerShell.
