To be fair to Amazon, if you click on the print version preview on Amazon, it does show black-and-white illustrations. I did not view the print version preview on Amazon prior to purchasing the book because nothing in the description - at least nothing I could see - indicated that the print version would be different from the online version. And, really, I would have been happy with the b/w layout if the illustrations were legible.
The constant distraction of the poor printing is unfortunate. First time author Samara Lynn is clearly enthusiastic about Server 2012 and cares enough to communicate her ideas in a clear, concise style that retains a light, flowing character. Her references to the differences between 2012 and past versions will help uses familiar with the Server family feel at home.
The book is not the be-all, end-all of Server 2012 books and that's why the subtitle is "Up and Running." I used the material to do just that - get up and running in a short time. Active Directory, Hyper-V, User Management, networking, remote access - the basics are covered. Navigating the new GUI access is also covered (I was happy to hear that the author briefly had the same trouble I did - how do I shut this thing down?)
Verdict: Good written introduction to Server 2012 that should be read via the online version (Safari, if you have access) or the Kindle version. I've come to expect more from books carrying the O'Reily imprint. If I had ordered the Kindle version or reviewed the Safari online version, my rating would be 5-stars.
I'd return it if I could.
