About the Book
Guess what? The "free sample" is exactly the same as the "real" book. So you can grab the sample, and if you like it, still come back and buy the "full" book, because I'm donating all the proceeds from this to The DevOps Collective, Inc.'s scholarship and other nonprofit programs. Pay what you feel this is worth and what you can afford.
This book isn't designed to teach you much about PowerShell. Those books exists. Heck, I've written a bunch. This is the book to tell you how far along you are toward becoming an Uber PowerShell Crafter. It's a book about how to get there, not necessarily what you need to know (although there are plenty of references, so you'll know where to turn if you want). Also, this isn't a serious book. It's meant to be a little fun, a little irreverent, and only a teeny tiny bit useful.
