Windows finally has the command line shell and scripting language it's long needed. With over 130 command line tools, all integrated with consistent syntax and utilities, PowerShell is among the best things that's ever happened to Windows administrators. So is this book.
Microsoft's Step by Step format is perfect for learning PowerShell. You'll build your skills incrementally, at your own pace, with hands-on examples: from ridiculously simple stuff (listing directories) all the way to creating Active Directory providers, LDAP names, and multiple organizational units. The latter is an example of the book's larger-scale projects. There's one in every chapter, ranging from obtaining WMI service information to displaying all users in a specific city. There's a library of practice scripts on the companion CD, too.
If you still doubt the value and power of Windows scripting, this fresh, modern tutorial will make you a believer. Bill Camarda, from the June 2007 Read Only
