Windows PowerShell Cookbook
By Lee Holmes

 Windows PowerShell

No Windows administrator can afford to ignore PowerShell. Not just because it automates many administrative tasks, but because having working knowledge of one of the most powerful tools to come along for Windows since the wizard GUI also helps when you're given someone else's PowerShell script.

This cookbook has recipes for common PowerShell tasks in a problem/solution/discussion format. In addition, it introduces you to PowerShell's syntax and functionality. Also, there is a section on performing file manipulations, reading XML and network activity. There is one minor downside: The chapter on Exchange Server is terribly short. If you need more information on that topic, Professional Windows PowerShell for Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1 is a good resource.
