5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book for Windows Scripting, 9 Nov 2012

This book provides a comprehensive coverage of Windows scripting, with a focus on Windows 7 and Vista as the title suggests. It covers VBScript in great detail and later on Windows PowerShell scripting language. In fact, I liked this book for its coverage of PowerShell, despite the fact that it covers this topic with less detail than it deserves, but very effective in clarifying the PowerShell language which new beginners almost certainly find very confusing (and many books fail to debunk that confusion!).

If you want a [nearly] complete book on Windows scripting, this is one book to have on your bookshelf. However, I am a bit surprised why Windows PowerShell didn't get more prominence in the coverage; it looks as if the book was written with some bias toward VBScript particularly when PowerShell is the future in Windows scripting. I am sure this point can be easily addressed with the next edition if there will be one.

If you are into Windows scripting, this book provides a good reference source with coverage of wide topics.
