Ebook – VMware Workstation – No Experience Necessary

A little while back I got involved with Packt Publishing to help with the publishing of a book called “VMware Workstation – No Experience Necessary”. I was helping in the capacity of a technical reviewer – this meant reading and reviewing each chapter and suggested changes or improvements where necessary whilst the book was in development.

The book has now been published, and you can grab yourself a copy / support the author (Sander van Vugt) over at the Packt website: Link to ebook. This is a great book if you are new to VMware Workstation, and being fairly short (around 100 pages), it reads well and is to the point. It contains information on every aspect of setting up Virtual Machines, their configuration, networking and other tasks such as snapshots and remote management using Workstation so it really does a great job of getting the beginner up to speed.

It is also available on Amazon in Paperback and Kindle editions

Regarding the actual work involved, I was purely interested in the review process and thought it would be an interesting project to help with – none of the book sale proceeds come my way.

  1. Thanks for the heads up on the book. Your article now begs the question of how you found the technical reviewer experience. Did you find it valuable? Was the process ornery or straight forward? How satisfying is it be credited in (e-)print? Would you recommend others try it for themselves? How deep of a technical understanding do you feel a reviewer needs to be effective? Is this starting to sound like fodder for a follow-up post? 😉
