"Whilst it would be beneficial for any IT professional dealing with Exchange Server 2010 to read through the entire book at some stage, the book's design also allows a reader to reference just that part of it that is currently needed."
--Tony Stevenson, Left-Brain Bookstore
"This book really brings it home and explains alot of the design concepts and even some of the general architecture that many people are not aware of. it has comments and insight from Consultants all over the globe that have been doing this in the field for years. And it really ties it all together."
--Mitch Roberson, Amazon.com
"While I usually find most Exchange Server books either too simple in their approach or so overly technical it just becomes a print copy of TechNet, this book genuinely held my interest as an above mentioned Exchange geek and would be something I recommend to anyone looking to take their Exchange Server knowledge to the next level."
--Reed Wiedower, New Signature
