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.
