"This book is an excellent introduction and overview of the field of Configuration Systems. It covers the most important developments in the field."--HPCMagazine.com, August 2014
"The book is quite easy to read – the author uses colloquial language and the text flows more like long magazine articles rather than a text book. A nice addition is computer forensic case studies that are peppered throughout the book."--The Journal of Digital Forensics, Security and Law,Vol. 9, No. 1, 2014
