    If you are doing anything with Exchange 2010 You need this book!

    Hands down one of the best books I have bought for exchange! An exchange admin should have in his arsenal of tools and references. Organized well, straight to the point and if you want more keep reading "there's More".
    There are a few area's its light on but for the day to day administration of exchange with powershell this is the place to go.

    no GUI here! try your hand at text based scripting

    PowerShell is all about a more productive use of the system administrator's time. The book's size is an acknowledgement that Microsoft Exchange in its latest [greatest?] 2010 version, has grown into a monster. The complexity and variety of the topics that the sysadmin has to deal with in a large corporate or academic environment has led to this.

    Readers who come from a unix background might recognise an overarching meta-pattern in the book. PowerShell is somewhat akin to the shell scripts that arose in the various unixes. Just like those decades of unix scripting, PowerShell lets you code intricate scripts that can get at the mailboxes and do innumerable things to them. One striking similarity with unix is that there are precious few screen captures of nice graphic user interfaces in this book. Instead, it is essentially all text based. The flavour of this book is not unlike a unix shell scripting text of 20 years ago or even of the Microsoft DOS shell scripts of that era. Because to solve some problems, any user interface is ultimately too confining. An unintentional irony that has perhaps escaped other reviewers, who have focused more on the details of PowerShell.

    And what of these details? The PowerShell language, or at least the text's examples written in it, seem somewhat verbose. But the merit at least is that the names chosen have semantic self documenting value. A non-trivial consideration when many computer programs lack much explicit inline documentation. This is a very common trait amongst programmers, who just deprecate inline notes. The book does not address this explicitly. But if you are indeed going to code in PowerShell, you should adopt a style of coding similar to the book's.
