Book review: Powershell pocket reference

[Disclaimer: I’ve received a copy of this book for review]

I’m really happy to  have received a copy of this book. It’s really a simple, easy to read, concise book which contains all you need to get started with PowerShell. You can easy read the book in 1 or 2 days (that is, if you’re reading from cover to cover). If you’re near a computer, then you can always try to run the examples and even try some new things on your own (being a concise book, you’ll find lots of references which you need to explore).

As you might expect, this is not a complete guide to Powershell. You won’t also be getting info on how to build custom cmdlets or on how to extend Powershell.

Overall, I’d say this is a good reference book that you should have by your side if you’re starting working with Powershell. I’m giving it 7/10.
