Format: Paperback
My memory of reading various Microsoft Resource Kits mostly consists of dry, highly technical and not very accessible content. I mean a Resource Kit isn't something you read, it's something you refer to and look up facts in.
I was pleasantly surprised by this book, it's very accessible, clearly laid out and really covers not only the technical ground but also the business case for each of the additions to TS in Windows Server 2008. Sizing hardware for a terminal server is covered in detail as is the comparison of a 32 bit or 64 bit platforms. Profile management, locking down TS servers and licensing is all covered. New features in TS 2008 are covered in great detail, the Session Broker is explained, TS Gateway and TS Remote Apps are fully taken care of as is Easy Printing.
Interspersed in the regular text are short sections where particular technologies are thoroughly explained by various members of the TS team at Microsoft and they too make interesting reading.

All in all this is a must have book for anyone tasked with running a Windows Server 2008 Terminal Services Server or farm.

This book is a very well laid out and pretty comprehensive compile of all the various items needed to plan, scale, configure and manage a Terminal Services infrastructure. Before this book, most of this material was scattered throughout whitepapers, Knowledge Base articles and in the tribal knowledge of people who work with the product. Thanks to this book, its all provided in one place in a very easy to find manner (especially when you take into account that there is a searchable soft copy of the book on the accompanying CD) This book gives people from the neophyte level to seasoned administrators a easy to use resource to understand and reference.

I have been installing and supporting Citrix and Terminal Services for 15 years. I found this book to be a real page turner. There are a lot of changes from TS on Win 2k3 to TS on Win 2k8. If you have a lot of experience there will be lots of stuff you already know and you can read that quickly but to bring you up to date, revise the stuff you already know and get high authority recommendations from Microsoft for things like hardware specifications this book is great.

If you are new to Citrix or Terminal Services this is one of the must read books.

There are some good recommendations on when to use 32 bit and 64 bit Windows and differences between Standard and Enterprise versions. The book is worth it for this information alone.

I found this book easy to read and a real page turner.
(I know what you are thinging now, I do have a life.)

This book was an excellent resource for learning the new terminal services features in Windows 2008.

I have been running terminal services and citrix for a decade now, but had not kept up with the new features in 2008. This book quickly gave me the information I needed to design an environment for a new project one of our teams wanted to implement.

Despite the name, this is more of a book to be read than strictly a reference like many other resource kits. The 500 pages went quickly and proved very useful.

This is a great book. It's not written like the normal Windows study guide books (ones meant to prepare for certification testing), and had everything I needed to know for a deployment I was working on at the time. Very detailed, fully comprehensive, and a great asset for anyone working with RDS.
