"If you want a book that lays bare the design and management of an enterprise or departmental AD, you need look no further. This is the one!"

"As a departmental administrator in a global multinational system with many servers, I found this book useful to get you off the ground and keep going."
-- B. Chandler, Amazon.com

"This is a fine book on the Active Directory service. Confusing topics are decomposed using straightforward text and no nonsense illustrations in a classic O'Reilly style. Everything from architecture, through common uses cases, to using the API is covered here. Excellent book, heartily recommended."
-- Jack Herrington, Amazon.com

"Robbie Allen and Joe Richards are two of the best and most knowledgeable Microsoft MVP's on the planet. When you see these two teaming up on a book you know that a great book is going to be the outcome and they have come through here. "
-- Mike Kline, Amazon.com

"This edition considers the Directory for Windows 2000, 2003 and its updates, cosidering the overall pros and cons of Active Directory, common tips and traps, and more. Yes, you can use Microsoft's documentation for many similar answers; but here they are arranged in a more logical manner and provide more candid assessments to help users upgrade or understand options."
-- James Cox, Midwest Book Review
