1 word 3 syllables, Amazing! This product does what it says it does. I was always embarased of my underarm sweat, being a big guy it was always constant. When I use Sweatblock, I don't have to worry about that stuff. I don't have to worry about taking my jacket off at a wedding and having giant wet spots under my arm. This is truly an amazing product!
Windows Server 2012 Inside Out covers just about every topic about Windows Server 2012. The book is the very comprehensive. With this it is also a MASSIVE physical book. The literal size and weight of the book is a great argument for the Kindle version. The kindle version is also less expensive. When the book weighs more than your laptop or tablet it's time to go kindle!
I could end almost this review by saying William R. Stanek. I have been a fan of his windows books for years and his authorship alone speaks to the quality of information within the book and its useful organization.
This is a reference, not a "learn visually" or really a beginners book at all. It has everything needed to get someone with windows workstation experience up to speed on Server 2012 or help someone who has worked with an older version of Windows Server like me. The Stanek books on Windows Server have been very helpful for me when I go outside the subset of server management in my comfort zone or things I do on a regular basis. It's a great reference for those tasks that fall off my skill set without frequent use.
For people moving from older versions of Windows Server, you get coverage of hyperv and new features with Server 2012.
With any book there will be things where more information might be needed or some specialized situations that are not covered. Such is the case even in a huge work like this one. By the time I'm in that far out in the weeds I'm searching Microsoft support and Microsoft Technet to get those details.
As with all the inside out books the printing and binding are fine quality. The tactile nature of the paper is a pleasure. The illustration and screen grabs are all B&W/grayscale which is appropriate for this type of book. The weight of the book means I want to read it at a desk, not sitting on the Sofa. It's just too heavy! Like I said at the beginning, I think that is the best argument to get the Kindle version.
After the Pink Floyd blew up into mega-stars, following the astounding sucess of both Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here, there was a bit of a backlash, at least in the UK, where were they were dimissed by youngsters and punks as "dinosaurs." The infamous photo of John "Rotten" Lydon with his "I HATE Pink Floyd" tee shirt was in every tabloid at the time. But I'd put a Dollar to their Pound any day to bet that this is the Floyd at it's most hateful, most vitriolic, most bitter and nasty -their reaction to ( and reaction against ) the "punk" movement. The lyrics are mostly purely cynical, something they'd never done. The music rocks like they'd not done since their debut Piper at the Gates of Dawn. The guitar solos, courtesy of the genius Dave Gilmour, tear out of the speakers, especially on the remastered edition. Sure, there are moments of the trademark Floyd sound, particularly in the opening and closing acoustic tracks, and in the extended spacey middle section of "Dogs". What remains is pure vile, and it is all the better for it. Roger Waters' lyrics are a condemnation of all mankind, either as blind followers ( "Sheep" which happens to feature Gilmour's best guitar solo, in the outro ), as corrupt money-hungry savages ( "Dogs" ) or as self-righteous and hypocritical political leaders ( the quite funky "Pigs (Three Different Ones)". This is a terrific album, one I go back to again and again. The music's on spot. The lyrics bite like no other Floyd album. And despite the fact that there are only really four songs on this album, it has a musical variety that is missing from some of their other albums. A keeper. Five stars, absolutely.
