If you are the kind of person who doesn't really understand something until they've actually had hands-on experience with it, this is *the* book to learn LDAP and Active Directory. I have 5 other books on LDAP/AD (really) and it's only after running the scripts in this book that it all snapped into focus. Download the scripts, modify them for your environment, run them, study them, and you'll be praising the author as I am. Although all the scripts are in VBScript, Perl translations are available on-line. I don't think you can find this information any where else, which leads me to ask, "How did the author figure it all out?"
