      This book is great. It is easy to read, has a lot of screenshots which make it more appealing to the reader. The content is well divided in chapters and explained in great detail. I really like the format and writing style of this book. The writer is someone who has deep knowledge of Microsoft systems in general and Hyper-V Replica in specific. He knows the best practice how to implement Hyper-V Replica and explains it very well to others so that they can see the advantage of this new feature and realize the value it adds to the company. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn about Hyper-V replica and implement this new feature in their company.
