  1. I got my copy from Amazon this past Friday and after spending the weekend reading parts of it, I have to say this is a fantastic book. Well written, thorough, easy to understand, and has already helped me resolve a few problems I was running into with the Essentials role. I can’t imagine the amount of work that went into this book but thanks for the hard work. It’s one of the best Server books I’ve ever used/read.
