Note that, because of the broad scope of the PowerShell product, this book has a commensurately broad focus. It was not designed as a cookbook of pre-constructed management examples, like how to deal with Active Directory or how to script Exchange.

Instead it provides information about the core of the PowerShell runtime and how to use it to compose solutions the ‘PowerShell Way’. After reading this book, the PowerShell user should be able to take any example written in other languages like C or Visual Basic and leverage those examples to build solutions in PowerShell. This book is designed for anyone who wants to learn PowerShell and use it well.

I received this book yesterday and I have already found answers to questions I haven’t been been able to find clear answers for and learned new techniques All in less than 24 hours! I only started using PS within the past year because of employer paid certification. It has made my job easier and much more interesting. This book is like taking what I have done and put it on steroids. The only ding that I have is it took a little too long for something purchased through Amazon to get to me.

Consider this book the Definitive Reference for PowerShell. Written by one of the designers of the PowerShell environment, the author knows all the ins and outs, back-alleys, hidden rooms, and secret handshakes the language offers – and isn’t afraid to grab you by the hand and drag you along like it or not!

Therein, however, is the reason I can’t recommend this as your first PowerShell book. The book is very logically planned out, the information very well presented in relatively easy to understand language, there is an abundance of script snippets to demonstrate what is being talked about, and the writing style itself is entertaining to read.

But the author knows too much on the subject, and like any proud parent, often “too much information” is given, delving too deep into the gears and cogs of PowerShell and the underlying.

Windows PowerShell in Action, 3E

NET framework for the often basic building block component, which might overwhelm the new PowerShell user, especially if the user does not have programming, let alone scripting, experience.

So although I say don’t make this your first purchase, make it your second – and probably your last. You’ll soon find out that every aspect you thought you knew has much more to the story than you thought, and you’ll walk away from this read able to do just about everything you want.

I’ve been writing in PowerShell for a couple of years, but I still find myself going to the internet for how to do certain things in the language. I would found a way that works, but sometimes I just wasn’t sure why it worked that way. This book has already answered lots of those I-wonder-why questions.

When you know why certain features work the way they do, and examples of why they don’t work the way you might have thought, that’s when you know the language better and better. Plus, you have a better shot at figuring out your next question on your own, without turning to the internet.


I bought this book back inas I was curious about powershell – which was version 1 at the time and this book was a key book to understanding it. I got a few books on powershell, and the style of this book at first seemed very choppy, but as I learned more about the language it became more understandable the way things were done in this book. The author has so much information about the way that the language was developed that it made certain things distracting. I have seen the author on the MSDN Channel 9 video’s and that also probably helped me understand how the author voices things in a certain way.

The book is very useful, and the most dogeared of my powershell books. There are better style books out there for version 1. Now with Powershell 2. There is a lot to powershell, and it presents a learning curve, but you will find that the time invested will bring a payoff. It feels like a swiss army knife for admins and developers. This book may give nuances to the language you might not find in other books.

So I definitely would recommend this book, more so if it is a 2nd edition – for Powershell 2. I am overly pleased!

This book covered many areas that I couldn’t find easily. I have bought other PowerShell books, but they were lacking on much of thr info I needed. I would recomend having this book once you are ready to take PS to the next level. I have just started reading this book after a brief overview of its pages and appendixes and one thing is clear: PowerShell adds to Windows the dynamic and dimension that until now had been missing. With PoweShell Windows has brought all of its potential to the forefront.

It is an exciting new development for programmers, administrators, and even every day power users of Microsoft Windows and thus far, this book offers a clear and in depth introduction to unlock the Power and Usability of Windows that was previously only available to only the most dedicated and committed experts in the most arcane ways, if at all.

This book is definitive enough where it allows the user to get started with PS by explaining syntax and the scripting language all the way to producing Cmdlets, Modules, how to use the Powershell ISE, language gotchas, oddities, quirks and more. This is the only Powershell book you will ever need – until 2. Even then, this book builds the groundwork for using Powershell to automate all types of tasks and will be usable far into the future.

I’ve used it to write a couple of Powershell applications so far and it’s been worth every penny I paid already. After years of scripting in Windows shell, Perl, and some brief work with VBScript, Powershell is the way to go and this is the guide you need for it. See all 81 reviews.
