    I’ve been using PowerShell for a little over a year now, and I’ve acquired quite a hefty collection of PSH-related books. Among those books, the 1st edition of Lee Holmes’ “Windows PowerShell Cookbook” is one the most heavily read and dog-eared. The new 2nd edition adds chapters and sample scripts around PowerShell 2.0’s new features, like Event Handling and Advanced Functions, but most importantly, it retains – and even expands upon – the obvious passion that Holmes has for PowerShell, and for helping people understand it.

    Whether you’re just getting into PowerShell now, or you’re a seasoned expert who has been using PowerShell since it was codenamed “Monad”, Lee Holmes’ “Windows PowerShell Cookbook” should have a prominent position on your bookshelf, or in your e-book reader!

    ** Full disclosure: I work for Microsoft, but my job has nothing to do with PowerShell. This review is my own personal opinion. **

    I have read many powershell books out there, and many of them are good, many are not so good. This book claims to be a cookbook, which typically I use as a reference to take ideas from. There is usually a short explanation of the concepts and uses of the technology. But I found I gained a good deal of practical application of the concepts in these short reviews. So in short this should not be your 1st Powershell book, but it should definitely be your second if you are an IT administrator.

    The scripts are comprehensive, and useful. Lee has done a great job. I found immediate use that saved me a couple days in consulting time. So a $40 book and a couple of hours of my time against that cost, was quite a good return and I end up being the IT hero again.
