This book is excellent. It has helped tremendously in learning PowerShell as it applies to SharePoint administration. This is THE book for this subject. It is written in a straightforward style and shows how to install and configure a SharePoint farm with PowerShell. Much thanks to the authors. I only wish it was available in e-book format.
