    Recommend me a good 2008 r2 book

    Thinking of getting my head around 2008 & w7 - can anyone recommend a good book on these?

    I was quite keen on Mark Minasi's stuff, as its a bit easier to digest - dunno what his latest are like?

    Cheers

    I have got the mastering server 2003 and mastering exchange 2003 and they are very good books, and just looked at the 2008 R2 and started reading the first chapter and looks like i might buy it. I did stray off the "mastering" books for exchange 2007 and got some random book. In my opinion it was a waste of money and so looking at going back to the "mastering" books.

    I find the Mark Minasi books are good, the MS Press ones are usually ok but I am finding more and more that I get two copies of books tbh, one MS Press and the other from someone else as they seem to fill in the gaps / confusion points between them rather well.

    I bought a MS book, Windows Server 2008 Administrators Companion great book, there for when it is needed.
