I know a fair bit about 2008 R2, but knew that I would need a reference book of some sort.

It is organised very clearly and is great to dip in and out of as needed.

For some reason, it seems to be very hard to find a decent book about Windows Server 2008 R2. I looked at numerous titles before settling on this one, which is better than the others but is still decidedly average and lacking in basic information.

The basic problem is that none of these books are written from a 'real world' perspective. For instance, this one is called 'Windows Server 2008 R2 Administration' and the cover claims it offers 'Quick & Easy Lookup, Real-World Solutions and Answers on the Spot'. Sounds just the thing that a server administrator or someone setting up a server would need, right? So let's look at setting up the DHCP service - not covered. Or maybe setting up a network printer - not covered. How about creating some hidden shares - nope, not there. There is plenty of reference material on quite a lot of topics and, as I said, I did buy it. But ultimately, it doesn't quite work as the one-stop reference that it implies it is.
