Technical Reviewers needed

PowerShell and VMWare guru Hal Rottenberg is hard at work on Managing VMWare with Windows PowerShell: TFM. We are now in need of a handful of committed technical reviewers.  Please make sure you can meet the software requirements listed below. 

If you are interested in being a reviewer, please send an e-mail to by August 1,2008. The subject of your e-mail must be "VMWare Book Review" or your e-mail will be misdirected. 

Once accepted into the Review program, you will have access to a Web site where you may download chapters and a review form. We encourage you to submit technical errors as well as more general feedback on each chapter.  Each reviewer who reviews all of the book’s chapters will receive a $100 gift card and a free print copy of the book (excluding shipping costs). The reviewer who submits the most technical corrections (that is, corrections – not just notifications of errors) will receive a special SAPIEN surprise gift pack.

In order to review a chapter, you must have submitted feedback for all prior chapters. You will only have access to one chapter at a time. In the past we have had a large response when asking for reviewers, but most of them have either provided no feedback or only provided feedback on 1-2 chapters. If you don’t have the time to download a chapter and submit feedback within about 2-3 days, then please wait for the finished book, instead :).
