    The essential manual for IIS

    This book is indeed a pocket consultant. I poured over this book for a week when I got it and I'd have to say it is excellent. This book is probably best for anyone who wants to get the most out of IIS. I'm really glad I got this!

    Very worthwhile

    One of several Pocket consultants that have got me through some tough times after downsizing left me as the only administrator for our company. I don't know what I would have done without these books. This book like the others is constantly by my side. It is clear and to the point which is exactly what I needed to get me through it all. This book is really worth every penny it costs. It is packed with useful information, well written, intelligent, and easy to read.

    More comprehensive than you'd think

    Being a pocket consultant you expect the book to be compact and concise. It is. It is also very comprehensive. Everything I needed to know about IIS I learned in this book. Excellent for study, reference and daily use. Buy it!

    Another GREAT pocket consultant

    Once again William Stanek has come through with IIS 6 Admin Pocket Consultant. He covers everything from Web server configuration to ASP.NET installs to FTP, SMTP, and the new POP3 mail server for IIS. The book is well written with Stanek's usual knack for clear, concise and accurate material. I found more useful information in this book than any other on the subject. The book is well-written, AND easily understood. I would recommend it highly.
