The Barnes & Noble Review
Responsible for Windows clients? William Stanek has simplified your life. He’s distilled Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 2 into 500 pages of specific, reliable answers you can access fast.

While blessedly concise, Stanek manages to cover nearly every corner of XP Pro. Some areas of special focus: configuring the Windows environment and hardware; customizing and optimizing XP’s interface; managing user access; coping with laptops and remote access; and configuring networking and Internet connectivity. Want to set disk quotas? Configure offline files? Add a custom logo to Internet Explorer? Troubleshoot startup or shutdown? Set up dynamic disks? Lock taskbars so users can’t misplace them? Look no further.

No, this book won’t quite fit in your pocket. But it’s small enough to take almost anywhere -- and useful enough that you’ll want to. Bill Camarda, from the January 2005 Read Only

Just as described: clear and concise. I am amazed at how much information and details Stanek can pack into 500 pages. This has to be the best Windows XP book I've ever read. When I moved to my new office last week, all my other XP books stayed in the packing boxes and this is the only book I took out. It is the only XP book I use now.
