Windows PowerShell: TFM 3rd Edition.

When the first PowerShell CTP came out, SAPIEN Press began offering the 3rd edition of our popular Windows PowerShell: TFM book. The 3rd edition of the book covers PowerShell version 2. While the version 2 is in CTP status, we've been offering the book as an ebook only. Once the PowerShell v2.0 officially ships, then everyone who has a ebook version will get a copy of the final printed book. With each CTP release, the book is updated.

For organizations who aren't I understand the reasons and believe that PowerShell v2 will bring more of you on board. Of course I hope you won't wait, there's no reason not to at least learning PowerShell. Sure, PowerShell v2.0 will offer lots of new bells and whistles, but you won't have wasted any time learning PowerShell v1.0.
