Format: Paperback
If you are looking for a book which investigates and explains the finest details of the windows operating system; then this is the one.

The book begins in a helpful way, explaining terminology that will be used throughout and explains the way the book is set out. Very soon the content gets very heavy and very technical. This is ideal for the target audience; advanced computer professionals.

As well as those people, it is a great book for students in the Computing area, going into much more detail than university courses generally do, setting the student up well for a future in the field and to further deepen their understanding of how the Windows operating system works.

You can tell the book is written by professionals who fully understand what they are explaining. They cover all areas in such fine detail, the reader will not need any more information; it is all in this book.

Alongside the detailed textual explanations there are experiments/tasks throughout the book. These tasks help the reader link what they have read to an actual result, something they can see and reproduce, which is a great way of assisting the reading in learning more efficiently.

Topics covered in Part 1 include the registry, DLLs, The Kernel and processes and threads. These are all covered in great detail and would be difficult to understand and follow without the mentioned recommended experiments.

This is a very good, very detailed, well written book, which will teach you a lot and give lots of helpful, detailed information. Recommended.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The introduction states that this book is intended for advanced computer professionals - developers and system administrators. It delves into the minutest details of the core Windows operating system and does require patient reading with a lot of back checking and note-taking to keep an overview of the huge amount of information. For the first time, this title has been split into 2 volumes and I've been reading Part 1 for the past 4 months and I'm still not halfway through its 700 pages, but I am neither advanced nor professional in my knowledge of computers. The authors write with complete authority on their subject, which you would expect considering that they actually design the Windows operating systems. I can't speak for professionals, but for me, this is an extremely interesting book that increases my understanding of how Windows works the more I read it and I'm looking forward to Part 2, already pre-ordered for sometime around the end of September.

As a part of my work as a sys admin I read a lot of tech books. This one is the best for a really long time.
Easy to follow, good language and full of really nice information. You get many of the "So that's why xxxx happens" and "And that explains problem xxx" moments.
Absolutely a must read for any windows admin who wants to move past the UI and look inside the box

still reading it - 1st section is essential to understanding the whole book. So, a little difficult for a non technical person to grasp but will plod on!
