1-0 out of 5 stars Poor resource
I was pleased to see a PowerShell resource for Exchange 2007.However, when I receive this it did not satisfy either of my two desires: 1) to learn more about the fundamentals of PowerShell (such as effective using pipilining), 2) better administering Exchange 2007 from the PowerShell.

This book just seemed to have cherrypicked topics from a standard implementing Exchange 2007 and threw together a punch of cmdlet references.My coworker and I went through the book and came out more confused than before we started with the book.

Stick with the Exchange Tech Center and the online help and you will be better off than with this reference.

5-0 out of 5 stars Must Have
This book is a must for any Exchange 2007
admin! Great read. No other book like it!

3-0 out of 5 stars May be good for day to day admin work....
But they left out a big section regarding migrations.Having just completed migrating 2000 mailboxes, I found this book to be rather useless in that task.It may be good for day to day admin, and it may be good at creating 1000 mailboxes automatically, but it had little to no information on scripts and recommendations for automating a migration.

5-0 out of 5 stars PowerShell for E2K7 SP1
This is a good book for Exchange Administrators.i have quite a few E2K7 books including the MS Press E2K7 Admin Companion and some of the earlier PowerShell books to include MONAD.this is a very easy read/reference book that gives you solid examples of how to use PowerShell. what i would have liked was a comprehensive listing of ALL options and a good reference is technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb124413%28EXCHG.80%29.aspx it breaks down cmdlets by role so you can choose exactly what you want with specifics.
Bottom line, good book for both novices and experts.

5-0 out of 5 stars Exchange 2007 Command Shell - It's about time
It's about time this book was written and published. If you own one or more of the half-dozen E2k7 books that have been written and published in the past year, you have just one more to pick up - this one. This book is written to be exactly what E2k7 administrators need after their initial installation of Exchange. Nearly all E2k7 books focus on the management of E2k7 but primarily from the Exchange Management Console perspective. (Actually, a book that does a very good job on command shell topics is the "Mastering Exchange Server 2007" book by Gerber and McBee. It's very good.)

Also covered in the book are topics of Troubleshooting, SCC and CR high-availability shell strategies. These three topics alone are worth the price of the book - to have all the PowerShell cmdlets in one place is truly convenient.

If you are looking for a excellent book on Exchange Command Shell from A to Z - and NOT generic Powershell coverage and Exchange-absent ramblings - then pick this book up. It's a resource for us messaging consultants and admins. who don't want to be Powershell gurus - just real good at Exchange Command Shell. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best book I've read on this subject so far
Great book! It has helped me immensely in converting my static html website into a joomla site. Well written and easy to follow. If you aren't real familar with CSS or Html you need separate books on those subjects. If you are more advanced and know a lot of PHP, get a more advanced book on that topic.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Reference
I have been using DreamWeaver for the last few years to maintain/update client sites.I have a client that needed a cms site.After deciding on Joomla!, I read and referenced this book throughout the process. It was very helpful, and got me through most of the key concepts.Layout and pace of the book was very good, as was the language/terminology.As for any book, you will run into issues when creating your site that may or may not be covered.Even though that was the case, the concept was covered. When I searched the Joomla! community, this made it much easier to understand and implement the solution.

I also liked the "Favorite Extensions" chapter--essential tools for managing, backing-up, and enhancing the site.

5-0 out of 5 stars I knew I'd like it when I saw who authored it
...and I was right. I'd watched her videos on another site for Joomla and knew I wanted the book. I think I have most every J! book out there but this one is outstanding. If you're stumped on your site or just need more info than you have, this is a great solution.

What I liked: good clear instruction. Lots of overviews of the admin stuff, plus outside-the-Joomla-box info on planning. A good section on backup.

What I would like more of: extension coverage, especially the multi-use modules and the ecommerce selections. That is because most of these are poorly documented by their creators and no one has really tackled a book on the subject (although most J! authors do include sections in their books on the topics).

Well worth your dollars and minutes to get and read.

2-0 out of 5 stars The book never made it past "Start"
The book never made it past "Start".If you are a beginner, it did not adequately explain the relationships between Sections, Categories, Articles and Menus - the basis of Joomla.If you are a more advanced web designer making the transition to a Content Management System (CMS) - the book spends a scant several pages on using external templates and resolving issues.

You are better off spending a few dollars less for a basic entry level book if you are just learning the ropes of CMS.Or, for more advanced designers, spend a few dollars more and buy something that goes deeper into the subtle nuances of Joomla.

4-0 out of 5 stars Decent book!
This book covers some pretty good material in terms of the basics of starting a website with Joomla.It gives a good foundation for how to make a site that is usable on the Internet.However, it doesn't cover a lot of questions a user might have if they are familiar with HTML and are now trying to use Joomla for a website.One example is that I was unable to find anything about making a link from one article page to another.There is only information about how to make links from the homepage.There is also very little about how to create basic HTML items such as drop down lists and frames. ...
