Windows Server 2008 R2 Administration Insta Reference

is a new book my buddies Matt Hester and Chris Henley wrote.  If you are working with the new Server Operating System 2008 R2, this book is a must.

I just got my copy, from first glance it is a great ‘little’ book (like 500 pages is little).  It is packed with information, very well organized to find just the info you need.
