Free PowerShell V1 Book From the Makers of PowerShell Plus

A number of you are already familiar with Dr Tobias Weltner.  Tobias has been involved with Windows scripting for many many years.  He was very active in the VBScript and WMI communities and then an very early adopter of PowerShell.  He is on of the PowerShell MVPs and the inventor of the amazing PowerShell Plus (I had Tobias demo this in one of my talks and people’s jaws just dropped). 

This week Tobias is making waves again by releasing a FREE PowerShell book “Mastering PowerShell”.   This appears to be a very comprehensive book at 567 pages.   Here is the TOC:
