The Barnes & Noble Review
Windows administrators: The command line is your friend. Maybe those Unix/Linux types are on to something: you can be incredibly efficient from here. Especially with some help from this pocket-size book.

Want to schedule automated tasks? Query the registry? Start or stop a service? Use event triggers to automate monitoring? Examine a running process? Check disks for errors? Create and format partitions? Set dynamic IP addresses? William Stanek provides the command examples you need.

You’ll also find extensive coverage of Active Directory command line techniques: making directory queries, managing computer accounts, working with domain controllers, administering network printers, resetting user passwords, and more. For Winadmins, this is indispensable. Bill Camarda

This book is well written, simple and concise, yet jam-packed with lot's of useful information and hints and tips for the command line. If you are wanting to learn the command line, or even if you are already using it but would like to use it more effectively, you should get your money's worth out of this manual. I consider myself a fairly expert command line user, but still learned quite a lot from this book.

Always been amazed at how much information William Stanek can pack into his books! Everything is easy to understand and to the point. The heading says it all. I learned more from this book on troubleshooting Windows than I've ever learned from any other book. It covers both Windows Xp and Windows 2003.
