Quotes and reviews

"Arguably of greatest benefit to those IT professionals who need to get up to speed with managing Windows systems (or, given its focus on Windows 7 specifically, who need to update their skills for the new platform)….  The book’s subtitle - ‘Upgrading, Deploying, Managing and Securing Windows 7’ - shows that there’s something specifically for security professionals in here, too."--Network Security
