Because of my background in pfSense, about 6 months ago I was approached by Packt Publishing, asking if I would be willing to be a technical reviewer for an upcoming book they were publishing on pfSense 2. No pay, just a couple of free books from their library, and a bio in the front of the pfSense book. Why not, right?
Being the first time I have done something like this, I thought it was pretty good opportunity to get a feel for what it was like to review a pre-published technical book like this. I was a little surprised at how much input I had, as I felt like my comments were well-received, and that I actually did have a hand in shaping parts of the book,
Well, the long and short of it, is that I enjoyed the experience, and I would recommend the pfSense 2 Cookbook to anyone looking for a practical guide to configuring pfSense 2.
