    Comments about oreilly Active Directory, 5th Edition:

    This book taught me a lot about how directory services work on the inside, and has enabled me to become a foremost authority on it at work.

    I highly recommend it to anyone who has to work with Active Directory, ADUC, and even powershell to process requests with AD.
