    A reviewer

    Ok, Now you might think its one of the 1500 boring books with a lot 'mumbo jumbo!' but let me tell why you should get it: 1. Technical Depth, the guy is good, like really good, like really really good. 2. Involved a lot of information direcrly from the Developers of the windows server 2008 product (so you're learning from the best!) 3. Our friend is retiring and he needs some extra money, don't be so cheap. Second, Writing style: To be honest, this is the first time I really enjoy reading a book, trust me he knows how to make you laugh every now and then so you releif some stress, eventually you find yourself craving for more information. he (Mitch) also has a great sense of humor, so don't think you're auckward if you start screaming 'Give me More, More!' (but not the same way as Brtiney Spears did, some similarity though). Third, good mind-refreshment to the days of Server 2000, 2003.
