    I have used this at work more than I thought I would. Thanks for making it easy to order along with my new server.

    I know I can access a lot of this info online but I just love having a good, thick book nearby. For some reason I just like it better. This one in particular is well worth the price. Mine is getting well-worn. I didn't read it through, just use it for searching for specific things I need help with.

    Maybe other people can get by with our reference books, but I need one. This is one of the best ones I've used so far. It's well-written and easy to understand.
