This book is much more better written than its previous version (Getting Started with Xenapp 6.0). It contains ''bread and butter'' what you need to know about deploying Xenapp 6.5 in small/medium environment. It explains the main technologies behind Xenapp 6.5 without too much hassle so if you have not ever worked with Xenapp you will pick it up very quickly. What is more, you can build your test lab just following scenarios in this book to get some idea how everything works. I would recommend this book to anyone who has little or none experience/knowledge about Xenapp technology as it will provide you with decent degree of understanding. However even as citrix professional I found this book very helpful regarding to new features in 6.5 version.

After reading this i couldn't help thinking that this was a rehash of the XenApp6 title, also by the same author.
I would like to add that i have read and reviewed the XenApp 6 book and you will see from that particular review 5 stars were awarded as i felt that this book gave the reader an insight not only into XenApp 6, but also how you could apply the technology in the real world.
Getting started with XenApp 6.5 as mentioned earlier seems to go over the same ground, but with slight emphasis on 6.5 (obviously!). Now i am not knocking the author in anyway shape or form as his Citrix knowledge far out guns mine & that 6.5 is really in theory an update to 6. its just that there were particular bits missing which apply only to 6.5, i.e. Session linger and pre-launch which although were mentioned in the text, were never really applied within the context of the book. So all in all a good book, but could have been better - maybe i am splitting hairs

Another good book, whether your about to get started with XenApp for the first time or been working with other flavours or an experienced admin. Like one of the reviewers, I think its good for learning the basics of XenApp and how to get it to work for small-medium sized environments. What its sorely lacking is at least a chapter on how to deploy XenApp using PVS and at least a small chapter on setting up a Netscaler CAG with Web Interface or Storefront. if you're working with XenApp you really want to know how to setup and use PVS.

I am new to XenApp and working my way through this book. So far it is meeting or exceeding my expectations. It is well written and concepts are clearly explained
