5.0 out of 5 stars A Must-Have for IIS 7 19 Jan. 2009
By Trenton Bennett - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you're old hat to IIS, you may be surprised to learn that IIS 7.0 is completely rebuilt from the ground up.

The bad news is, the interface has been redesigned from top to bottom.

The good news is, the rework was done to bring the IIS technology more inline with the Microsoft .NET Framework.

I bought this book because the online resources I've found have been very poor (yes, including Microsoft's own sites). I've been pleased to find that the book dives straight into IIS, provides me the details I would need to manage my server, and (thankfully) provides a lot of screen shots. As an added bonus, Stanek offers suggestions on customization and points out areas that will require some decision-making, such as the hardware you plan to use and the security practices that you should think through.

If you're new to IIS as a whole, you'll have an easier time using this book to learn if you come from a development background. If you're new to Microsoft networking as well as IIS, you might need a little more detail and I'd suggest you start with a book on Windows Server 2008. As for me, this Swiss Army Knife of IIS Administration is probably going to be well-thumbed-through before the end of the year.

This is one of those books you read after diving head first into something complicated and then bang your head against the table. Why, why, why didn't I read this book BEFORE I started messing around with IIS 7?

The book is pretty beefy for a pocket guide but its pretty thorough though and I'd definitely recommend it for anyone who messes around with IIS 7.0 but not for a living. I.e., you have to use it but not all the time.
1.0 out of 5 stars One of the worst books I have seen in a long time. 8 April 2014

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am so glad I bought two different books on IIS7 as this one was an utter failure IMO. It is very dry reading and not all that helpful in many areas. A far better book was the "Professional IIS 7" which explains things more clearly, telling you how to do it, why to do it, benefits, etc.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mission failure 6 Oct. 2012
By Chester - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The reason i pay for a technical book anymore is to save time with a finely distilled "this is what you need to know". Unfortunately, this book seems more a well written and highly detailed regurgitation of extensive documentation already available from MSFT.

Well documented and reference for experienced Microsoft System Admins. I found a lot of information from reading this book. The content was a bit confusing in some of the chapters.
