Be warned. If you even consider yourself a semi IT professional, you would do yourself a favor and skip this book as you will barely gain any knowledge after having read through it. The reason being is that there is rarely anything I would consider "in-depth" at all. I expected some heavy tips and guides to troubleshooting Windows 8 issues. What I got instead was tips on how to use the myriad of built-in diagnostic tools baked in the operating system and rarely does it venture outside of that. That's right. This is another one of those technical books that talks to you about how to use Device Manager as if you've never seen it a thousand times prior to Windows 8. Already know what a firewall is? Well too bad because all you'll learn to do here is how to configure the built-in Windows firewall to set up a basic outbound rule. Want to know how to get technical with the Event Viewer? Sorry, that ain't happening here. Want to know how to troubleshoot Storage Spaces, possibly one of the biggest new feature in Windows 8? Try again. All you'll even get is about 2-3 mini paragraphs in the entire book (can you believe that?) going over just briefly on what Storage Spaces is rather than actually talking about how to get it setup much less "troubleshoot" it. I guarantee you that you'll get a lot more information about this technology reading one of Microsoft's official blog posts instead.This book, however, should be a good reference to the casual crowd and up and coming IT personnel so not all is bad. It's just that I personally expected a whole lot more. In the author's defense, although Windows 8 is a completely new beast when compared to Windows 7 and before it, it seems that not much has changed as far as built-in utility goes while in desktop mode.
