Good for end-users but not really a book for techies,
This review is from: Windows Vista: Beyond the Manual (Books for Professionals by Professionals) (Paperback)
This book is really centred on the home user and the new features in Vista from a `how to use' them perspective, it is very light on the detail that a sysadmin is after and consequently I was a bit disappointed. That's not to say it's a bad book but if you are a sysadmin and want update your existing knowledge of Windows I would recommend "Administering Vista Security" by Mark Minasi.

As an IT pro working in corporate environments - all the other books listed are far too wooly.
"Administering Vista Security" by Mark Minasi seems to cut the mustard in terms of corporate techie concerns.
Sysadmin info is applicable in lots of other techie instances other than just sysadmins - as in this case :)
