Automating the world one-liner at a time…
Well folks, at long last, my book is almost done :-)
Before it goes out for print, you can get electronic copies through Manning's early access program:
The early access program is a chance for readers to provide feedback on a book so the author can fix things.
As Jeffrey says - enjoy!

Awesome cover :D
Who's idea was it?
I had the honor of reviewing Bruce's book and it is awesome! This is the book that only Bruce was in a position to write.

Mike from Manning here.
Manning's covers come from a 200-year-old (c. 1802) collection of illustrations purchased at an antiquarian flea market in Manhattan some time ago. The images show the diversity of dress from region to region in a world somewhat less-connected than ours is today.
I personally loved the effect of the character holding a "script." Plus, he looks just like Bruce.
Visit http://www.manning.com/payette for more about the book and to see a sample chapter. You can buy the book now in Manning Early Access Program and start reading immediately. We'll ship you a print copy when it rolls off the press.

Its true - Bruce's posture is abysmal.
(just joking :-) )
MicrosoftのPowerShell開発チームのブログで 著者みずから紹介していますが 、Bruce Payetteが著した "Windows PowerShell in Action"
for both Bruce Payette's and Lee Holmes' PDF books, what I am wondering is if one will be able to "print" to a paper.
There are PDF formats out there that disables printing of PDF files so I am wondering if I can simply purchase PDF versions of the books and print few chapters to read on the run.
Both books allow printing to paper.
Just to be clear - "Windows PowerShell in Action" is a printed in the bookstore kind of book. It will *also* be available as a PDF but it's 400+ pages long so it will be a bit daunting to print. In the early access program, it's only available electronically...
Ah, glad to hear that it's printable ;)
>It's 400+ pages long so it will be a bit daunting to print.
That is exactly why I would like to print a chapter by chapter and carry only a small portion around to read on the run, on the train, or on the tram etc ;)
Will the book cover the Direct ADSI support and changing WMI properties via methods?
Yes these topics are covered. Chapter 12 has a lot of stuff on WMI including using methods. ADSI is covered in Appendix B (though not to the degree that I would like.)
