Pros: I expect this book to be every bit as good as the XP version, which I've had since early '02.
Cons: None that I anticipate.
Other Thoughts: Ed Bott, one of the authors, is one of the most knowledgeable and respected authorities on Microsoft products. His presentation is factual and concise, and not opinionated as are many other publications purporting to be factual and unbiased. Anyone who is interested in keeping up to date with computer technology, and especially with Microsoft products should subscribe to his newsletters here: http://www.edbott.com/weblog/

Pros: Free shipping, cheap price. This is the type of book that should come with the expensive Windows O/S licenses.
Cons: None. It might come in handy every now and then.
Other Thoughts: I have been using XP Pro for a number of years now, grew up on Windows (since 3.11), before that good ol' DOS. I already knew about 90% of what is in the book, although some of which I had forgotten. I actually learned a thing or two, or maybe I already knew it and forgot that I used to know it???
The networking section was a good refresher course, and the shortcut keys...I haven't used many of them in years. File and printer sharing, NTFS security. I have read thru the book twice already (the 2nd time because the electricity was out for for a few days due to a snowstorm and I was really, really bored).

Pros: Wonderful book. I purchased this for a friend who just go her first computer. It had windows 7 installed. I had one of these books way back when Windows ME came out and I knew it would be a great help to her and her husband. There a lots of other books out there but I still prefer the Windows for Dummies Books. I just might pick one up for myself later on. I purchased a new computer as well. And it would be hand for some of the newer features of Windows 7. Best of all, you can not buy these books in any store where I live, they stopped carrying them, said they could order it for me. No way ,if I have to order something I buy from Newegg, great prices, and service.

Pros: The Microsoft Resource Kit books are great to add to a technical library. Newegg usually has the best prices on these reference books compared to *bay, *mazon, etc...
Cons: It's for Vista...
Other Thoughts: I have the 2nd Edition of this book that is updated for Service Pack 1. (Is there a newer edition to cover SP2?) I don't remember if I bought this WRK book from Newegg or someplace else. The ISBN on mine are 978-0-7356-2596-9 and 0-7356-2596-4.
Not many of the books on Newegg have any reviews. Either Newegg doesn't sell many books, compared to other products, or people just don't write reviews for books...
As far as using this as a weapon, it 'only' has 1648 pages (the 2nd edition) compared to 1706 pages in the XP WRK and 1708 in W7 WRK. If you want a weapon, try the Server 2003 Resource Kit at 4992 pages, although in 8 books. Too much information is usually better than not enough...
I have various Microsoft Windows Resouce Kit books back to Windows 3.x and NT in my library. Now that Windows 7 and its WRK are out, this Vista WRK book will probably collect dust, too...
