I bought several LDAP books and try to jump start on this topic.
This one let me very quickly to get into it. Esp. the case study part, give me the real world situations to think about various trade offs. The writting style make reader easy to read. Excellent one!

It's the LDAP bible.
This book has everything you needed to know about LDAP, but didn't know to ask. Awesone technical coverage as well as some really good ideas for deployment strategies.

Not for newbies
Good for Theoretical concepts but when it comes to practical implementation it's not much of a help and you would have to use the web as a guide for implementation and troubleshooting, which in my case was somewhat frustrating
However, it helps you in understanding the design aspects of your LDAP.
So the final verdict i would give is that if you would like to implement your Directory service in the most professional way then it is advisable that you read this book (you have to have lots of free time to yourself too ) but it will not be the only place that you will be looking for information regarding LDAP.
