This is a great book, even for experienced NT administrators. The organization and clear writing make it easy to find and understand the most important aspects of NT administration. The comparisons to Unix were great.

I respect a great deal of Ms. Frisch's work in the computing world, but this book just misses the mark. While the material that is available is clearly-written with authority, many of the subjects lead one to believe that the author was, well, in a hurry. Granted, the book's size does not allow every detail to be included, but the title would more appropriately be "An Introduction to Windows NT Administration."
Take, for example, the mere one-page description of TCP/IP port filtering -- it unhelpfully ends with "the designer of this dialog obviously never had to use it." Unfortunately, I/we do have to use it, so perhaps more detailed help -- even just a recommended starting point? -- would be appreciated. Plus, I perceived that the book over-relied on Resource Kit tools (which, while excellent add-ons, are certainly not ubiquitous), a mild annoyance.
Chances are, there'll be a second edition. It is probably better to wait.

After writing a masterpiece in Essential System Administration (a book for UNIX sysadmins), I felt that this NT version of her book fell short. The book provides plenty of useful screenshots, but overall the amount of information is minute. I expect the second edition to be much better.
