Each edition of Jeremy’s book has outdone the other. I’ve read each of them and I continue to learn new things every time I open it. I appreciated the expanded section on Troubleshooting and how to tap into the great new Vista tools to make troubleshooting much easier. Vista security management via GP is well documented and I can’t wait to dive in. Real world anecdotes and light ‘n fun writing style make for enjoyable reading for a complex and deep subject like GP.
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!

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.
Awesome book. Great read and very informative. I’ve been using it as a reference ever since. Keep up the great work Jeremy!
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.
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.
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, 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!!!!!

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!!!
