This detailed guide—using a practical, task-based approach and real-world examples—shows you how to get the most out of PowerCLI's handy cmdlets.

Monitor, audit, and report the status of your vSphere environment
Use the PowerCLI SDK, PowerWF Studio, and vEcoShell

Add a GUI front end to your scripts
Great book but....
The book has a lot of code examples sadly they are all broken due to a bug. I have contacted apple and the publisher but the book is still broken after 45 days.
