    Very detailed, good reference

    Windows 8 Administration Pocket Consultant is a superior reference book making it a true must have for every system administrator. This book has done much to increase my understanding of Windows 8 and to help me solve a number of problems we were having. The content is excellent and would certainly recommend it as being very helpful.
