Effective Windows PowerShell: The Free eBook

I’ve gotten some requests to turn my Effective PowerShell blog posts into booklet form which I have done.  I expect that this document will grow over time as I add new items.  If you have feedback (typos, suggestions, etc) please drop me a line.

    Very good work, thanks a lot!

    Just a side note: If I am not mistaken, the current PDF does include the chapter about using $OFS, but not item 16 “Dealing with Errors”?
