Book News Annotation:
Windows PowerShell is the Microsoft answer for more effective and efficient network management. PowerShell 2.0 was released in 2008, and this book is a result of the ensuing years of experience between the author and the Windows PowerShell Team at Microsoft. The goal of the text is to provide experienced IT professionals with proven best practices for scripting Windows administrative tasks. Bear in mind that this book is not a PowerShell tutorial or reference book; basic understanding of the software is assumed. Included is a companion CD-ROM with all the scripts discussed in the book, a few extras written for fun, and a quick reference document containing a summary of all the best practices in the book. Wilson is a senior consultant at Microsoft and is well-known as one of the "Microsoft Scripting Guys" on Microsoft's TechNet. This is the eighth book he has written.
