this is a great book to skim 27 Oct. 2014
By JD - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you're looking for a broad overview of Powershell and all that it's capable of, this is a great book to skim. It covers the very basics and opens your eyes to the many ways of thinking about and using PS. That being said: this is absolutely not a book for beginners. Things aren't explained in-depth and the writing isn't very good (I was really surprised to see so many "editors" listed for a book with such needlessly clunky grammar), but if you are accustomed to working with non-native English speakers in industry, you'll be fine.

My advice: grab this at a library like I did and spend a couple hours with it.

Too short to be useful 14 Sept. 2014
By Travis Parks - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
If you're hoping to understand how to automate setting up machines, don't buy this book. If you're looking for a reference, don't buy this book. Most of the content jumps all over the place, full of links to MSDN and other resources instead of actually trying to delve into something. The author comes off as lazy or rushed. As a developer I am not looking for an explanation about the difference between an if and a foreach. I'm looking for information about how to write scripts to install my software and configure my environments. I wish I could get my money back so I could put it towards another, better book.

Good book 4 May 2014

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I liked the book and I have to disagree with low ratings that some people gave. One thing is for sure, this book is not for beginners.
You have to have some PowerShell experience to get the max out that book. The book does not claim to be a powershell help file.
You can find the help file elsewhere. What I liked about the book is how you as a developer can benefit from PowerShell and how you can interact with different systems as TFS, IIS, Com. The only thing that I believe can be improved is the the chapter for CIM/WMI.
I really enjoy reading this book 30 April 2014

This book is filling the gap between .NET Developers and Administration tool like Windows PowerShell, before reading this book I was having small information about PowerShell and I didn't know it’ll help me in my development tasks, but unfortunately it missing a reference to parameters/cases, for example is IIS part it’ll show you how to change AppPool properties using PowerShell but not all cases included and no links.
Exactly what I needed 22 April 2014
By Gordon Beeming - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
The titles of the book made it very easy for me to jump to the sections that I was interested in. After reading through the introduction "Getting Started with Windows PowerShell" I found that I understood a lot better what I was sort of "winging" before. I also found Chapter 4 and 5 very useful because I work with JSON, REST APIs and TFS daily

Thanks for the title Sherif =D
