For novice admins/home users
This book gives you basic information how security model evolved in Vista. The book could be useful for novice admins or interested home users as well. I would like to see extended and updated revision of this book as it was written when Vista was still in beta. Then the book could reach five stars. Author's style is less technical and more rhetorical with sense of homour, this is not definitively a bad thing here. I do recommend to read the book.

Mark does it again!
Prior to ordering 30 new Vista workstations, I started hunting for the book that would tell me the IMPORTANT things to know about Vista. I didn't need to be a Vista expert, but instead wanted to know what might get in my way during the transition from Windows 98. After reading several of Mark's books, I knew this new Vista book would nail it for me. And Mark did not let me down - as usual. Written like he is talking to you instead of written like an instruction manual, this book will give any admin. that is looking at Vista a very good idea of what lies in store and how to get things running. Well done once again, Mark! Keep it up.
This book is excellent! It's a refreshing change from many of the publishers' exam study guides, usually riddled with typographical and technical errors. This is my first Mark Minasi book but won't be my last.

Excellent book which not only gives information about the
security changes but also the reason behind them.
As always, Mark is precise, humorous and gives practical
examples which make the book a lot easier to read.
This book will definitely help any I.T. administrator who
wishes to upgrade to windows vista without having

Mandatory Reading for My Staff
I don't usually take the time to write reviews, but this book is packed with solid information on the topics that are new to Vista - And it is very readable at the same time.
The title is exactly representative of the content - It really covers the "big surprises in Vista" for administrators. It isn't a huge technical manual, it isn't aimed as a user tutorial, or filled with a bunch of hoaky filler pictures. It basically outlines the new features of Vista and asks you to understand and consider the trade-offs before attempting to disable them.
Before reading this book, I felt as an administrator, the Apple commercial with the man in the middle was spot-on. This book at least helped me understand why each feature was implemented and what I would be giving up if I disabled them.
I made it required reading for all my staff and purchased a copy of the book for all technicians as well as managers.
