Door-stop of a book, but that's what you'd expect from this publisher. Crammed with detail and all you could ever what to know regarding the installing, running and using Windows Server 2012 in a business environment. Not the sort of book that you read from start to end. This is a reference book to keep in your computer room library... and then, maybe use as a door-stop when the next version of Windows Server comes out! Pick and choose what to read unless you are not familiar with Win Server 2012. Each section is self-contained with a few chapters, going into fine detail. A "must have" for System Administrators!

having read the previous 4 and 5 stars reviews (three in number at the time of writing) I wonder if the reviewers have actually read this book or whether in fact these reviews have been written to order.
This is one of the worst books I've read (well, I read most of it anyway)I've reached chapter 25 and finally gave up.
If 'leverage' is a word that you would use commonly, then this might be the book for you. Otherwise there are better books about.
The amount of useful information is minimal; it is there but you need to shift through a lot of bloat. For example every time adding a feature or a role is mentioned, the author(s) felt the need to detail every step (nody style) time and time again.
Things like "when you use x feature, resources will be used in addition to the resources required for normal operation"...duh; quotes like this appear more than once.
The book is also badly written and/or badly edited. The result feels like a copy/paste exercise hence not very coherent.
Hopefully this would be of help to some people and my few weeks of having this book as companion would not have gone to waste.

A very detailed publication by subject experts that is well written, some errors evident around the areas of the new file system ReFS which are not accurate but on a whole a very detailed and well written publication.

very informative, and is full of useful information that is not just for the windows server but, covers all other servers and configuring networks.

I got a recommendation from a video for learning windows server 2012 from this book.
many people in the IT world prefer this book.
and im not a big fan of ebooks on small screen when it comes to reading 1600 pages.
i recieved it about week ago and im not disapointed. for now ive learned many new tricks
and its made my life easier.
