Published Books

Windows PowerShell in Action, Second Edition Bruce Payette
A great, very much indepth look into PowerShell. Although written for PowerShell 2.0, I still recommend anyone wanting to get a deeper knowledge of PowerShell to definitely look into this book
Windows PowerShell Best Practices Ed Wilson – Scripting Guy
Great book on PowerShell 4.0 and previous versions of PowerShell. Comes with many sections with knowledge from industry experts that provide notes from the field. There is a paragraph written by me in there as well, which makes it a solid recommendation from my point-of-view
Learn Windows PowerShell 3 in a Month of Lunches Don Jones
Good starting point for anyone with a tight schedule to learn PowerShell one short exercise at a time.
