I have recently completed providing technical feedback for the book :
Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Administration Cookbook from Packt Publishing
The book starts off by demonstrating the various upgrading and post-upgrading tasks to be performed in SharePoint 2010. Next come recipes for managing SharePoint service-level applications and for monitoring the SharePoint environment. The book introduces one of the best new tools that should be in your arsenal, PowerShell, and the commands you will need to script your tasks with Powershell.
You can purchase the book from :
and is a worthwhile addition to any IT Professional who administers SharePoint 2010.
