5 of 5 stars The Dream Team (David & Mark), April 19, 2001
Reviewer: Terje Sшrgjerd (see more about me) from Oslo,Norway

I got this book 6 days ago, and I've read chapter 1 - 7 so far, the way these two gods explain and show how the internal win 2000 system works is just impressive. If you have read Inside Windows NT 2nd edition by Daveid A Solomon, you know what you are up for, David teamed up with a crazy russian Mark Russinovich which has practically made Windows NT (2000) Magazine worth reading. ;)

The only thing I'd love to see in the future is a little more coverage of the terminal services part of it. (2 pages isn't enough), and maybe a little more deep hands on experiments. All handson experiements seems to be pretty much "overview and simple". But you can't have it all, this nearly 1000 page book is like a design document for NT/2000. >=]

But no doubt, if you develop NT tools or sysadmin NT network this book is a *MUST*! If you don't have it, HURRY UP AND BUY IT NOW!

Also, remember to visit http://www.sysinternals.com for the best utils for NT. (And maybe the most stable ones. ;))

5 of 5 stars Practical Magic in Win32, April 18, 2001
Reviewer: George Datuashvili (see more about me) from Cupertino, CA United States

This is the book to take with you if you are expelled to deserted island with 1 laptop, solar power generator, win32 sdk/ddk, and 1 book of choice. It will make you think, wonder, appreciate and grok the best OS that Microsoft can offer. As Matt Pietrek said once, the magic of being debugger guru is the better understanding of OS. If there is any book to help you become one, this is it.

What is very important also is that along the line Mark (and David) explain and teach the reverse engineering techniques to explore the surrounding world of unknown black-box software. The books if full of ideas, hints and tips on multiple ways how to peek under the hood and extract that piece of information you are looking for.

It made me to fully understand and re-think the implications of thread scheduling, memory management, paging and synchronization on the complex code I was working with and resulted in great performance improvements.

You will also get to see the elegance of design decisions and compromises made by engineers working on such a complex OS, and this enlightening experience alone justifies reading of the book even if you are not interested in Win32 in any way.

It is incredible amount of knowledge and hard work compressed in a single volume.
