satellite tracking, or other special needs, then Amazon might be a better choice.

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 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 publications reading 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 cover and I have been in the business for over 15 years!

As is obvious to us “real world” AD Forest Rangers, Group Policy is very powerful and can be very dangerous. Used properly, you can reach new heights along the road to a “well managed environment” but if you aren’t very careful, you can hose EVERY W2k and newer system in your domain (and possibly forest) with just a few clicks. This author has focused on a very complex topic and due to his diligence and thoroughness, readers of this book come out the other side in glorious enlightenment. This book is a TREMENDOUS resource that covers almost every detail of GP that I’ve ever needed. Plus, the extra “Web chapters” at www.gpanswers.com are a great resource, too.
I agree with the other reviewers this book is an absolute must for any Windows 2000/2003 administrator. Other books touch on Group Policy but Jeremy breaks it down and really explains what is going on. You want to create your own custom policies… it’s in there. Group Policy is not applying; how do you troubleshoot… it’s in there. You want in-depth coverage of roaming profiles… it’s in there. You want to know how the GPMC works… it’s in there.
You get my point. Group Policy is one of the most important aspects of AD and this book hits the ball out of the park. I also recommend his previous book Windows 2000 Group Policy. This book is also endorsed by Mark Minasi and Michael Dennis (Microsoft Group Policy Manger) so you know it has to be good. Trust the reviews and buy this one.
Jeremy Moskowitz books are easy to read. He gives you great examples.

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 else I 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.

Awesome book. Great read and very informative. I’ve been using it as a reference ever since. Keep up the great work Jeremy!
This book uses any Group Policy knowledge you may think you already have and expands it by 1000% (technically impossible I know but you get my drift!). It’s a pleasure to read and the author’s knowledge and devotion to the subject come shining through. If you need to design or support Group Policy then you must buy this book.
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!!!
