But it comes down to this: Did I learn $7.00 worth of information from it? In my opinion I did.

I do a lot of administration tasks on my company's WSS site via PowerShell (querying data from SQL Server and placing it in lists to use a Chart Part to draw graphs, etc). I think I might learn some new tips from a little book like this.
