This book is, without a doubt, the best technical reference book I’ve ever read. The concepts are explained clearly and thoroughly. The examples are relevant to almost every production environment. Want to know how to get the most out of the new GPMC? It’s explained in detail in the book. Not sure how you can handle printer mappings through GP? It’s in the book, with a real world example and a VB script to help out. Need help determining how to handle profiles and folder redirection? There are entire chapters dedicated to this very topic. If you are struggling with how to make use of Group Policy to manage your desktop and server environment, BUY THIS BOOK. NOW!!!!!

I also agree with the other reviewers that this book is an absolute MUST for any Windows administrator. It’s easy to read & reference no matter what your level of expertise with GPOs. It’s helped me out on more than a few occasions. What more can be said that hasn’t yet? If you work with GPOs you MUST have this book! Thanks for a great book Jeremy!
This book is an unbelievable resource for anyone needing “The Word” on Group Policy. Incredibly clear, highly detailed, and well organized! This goes way beyond any documentation that has been produced Jeremy clearly spent a LOT of time digging through the guts of Group Policy and testing EVERYTHING. There is information here I haven’t seen anywhere elseI would not be surprised if Microsoft’s own Group Policy team learned a few things from reading this book. If you are planning, deploying, or troubleshooting Group Policy, do yourself a favor and GET THIS BOOK! Phenomenal!

I buy every new edition that comes out. This particular edition includes major new updates for Vista, such as ADMX templates. I teach courses on Windows security at SANS and I recommend the latest version of Jeremy’s GPO book at every conference to my attendees. This is one of the few must have books for Windows network administrators.

This is the book to have if you need to implement Group Policy in your organization or even if you just want to find out how Group Policy really works. There is nothing out there like it.
I can’t tell you how many hours I have spent pouring over Microsoft Technet documents and other technical publicationsreading a paragraph here and a paragraph there, in order to produce just a piece of a solution using Group Policy. This book has everything you need written in a fresh and interesting style. It is the first technical book I have read cover to coverand I have been in the business for over 15 years!

Awesome book. Great read and very informative. I’ve been using it as a reference ever since. Keep up the great work Jeremy!
If I could give this book 10 stars I would. When I read the first couple of pages, I knew this was just the book I was looking for. The book was not boring and every chapter has something useful. I have finally figured out why some of my group policies were not functioning properly and the [desktop management chapters were] awesome. If you don’t have this book please purchase this book as a reference or a problem solver.

Jeremy Moskowitz books are easy to read. He gives you great examples.

This is an absolutely awesome book. Right away I was able to easily understand why some of my group policies weren’t working and it explained why it takes so long for some PC’s to get assigned software. I highly recommend getting this book if you are going to be creating Group Policies. It’s a must have!!!
THIS book has exceeded my expectations. It has already solved/answered many problems/questions I’ve had about GP and AD. It is a one stop problem solver. Given all the 5 stars I saw in the reviews before I bought the book, I thought maybe the publisher had padded the reviews. Not so. This is a must have. It covers the basics and more advanced topics of GP, which is something I needed. An example problem I had: We use Roaming Profiles. We have three remote offices and sometimes printers wouldn’t install when a user went from a remote office to our home office. We also needed a way to automatically reset the default printer when a user roamed to a machine in another office. Page 132-133 of this book tells how to do that with a 5-line script. [This book] deserves more than 5 Stars!
