This book is awesome. It will become your bible for windows debugging, and covers both theoretical aspects such as how the kernel & userland fit together in Windows, details on how 64 bit & 32 bit cohabit etc, and real-world expertise on debugging strategies for remote, local, and virtual machine scenarios. If you are programming or supporting Windows apps & servers, then you want this book. For novices, if you’ve not debugged an NT BSOD yet then this will give you enough understanding and straightforward tips to do so yourself, and for experts, if you don’t learn something new from this book I’d be very surprised. The kindle edition is easy to read most of the time (on my large-screen DX), and at 500+ pages there’s a lot of great material to work through. I’ll say it again: Awesome.
