Format: Paperback
I've been solely focused on UAG and its predecessor versions since 2002. Done implementations and customizations of all levels literally all over the world. Ran and Ben are some of the few engineers out there that I consult with when I run into a tricky UAG issue or need a clever customization idea. They are true UAG gurus. I'm not sure how tey even found the time to write a book with how much time they spend with UAG in real world deployments. Whether you are new to UAG and planning or executing a deployment, a seasoned UAG administrator looking for some insider tips and tricks, or simply looking to further understand the products capabilities in the planning stages so you can help explain your needs to a UAG consultant like me, this book and Rans's & Ben's advice is a must have. Well, it wouldn't hurt to have Ben's other book too :) UAG's true value comes in its flexibility and extensibility. Don't underutilize UAG. Get Ben's books and make the most of your UAG!

Format: Paperback
We've had to work extensively with UAG 2010 over the past year as a platform for extending our software offering. Like many enterprise platform solutions it is very powerful and correspondingly complex, implemented and managed more often by consulting expertise than by end user administrators. This book can allow technical folks without the UAG history to get through basic installation/configuration, but also serves as a very good point-in-time reference for troubleshooting specific problems or answering specific questions. A number of the software developers on the team have mentioned how good the book is and have successfully answered questions using the book. It is well organized and presents all the major functionality. This is a must-have reference for anyone spending time implementing or managing a UAG 2010 environment.

I am in the planning stages of an upgrade from IAG to UAG. This book has been a great resource for basic UAG configuration up through advanced application publishing and onto long term maintenance strategy. The ~500 pages are a very easy read, with concise pertinent graphics throughout. I have already recommended this book to the rest of my team. I have exchanged a few emails with the co-author Ben in the past through his TechNet blog, and he is a very approachable and extremely knowledgeable guy.

I have the kindle version of this book and the companion Customization book for UAG. The Administrators Handbook is a great guidebook on the foundational topics of UAG. It covers the critical items I was most interest in, such as "reverse proxy" application publishing for Exchange and Sharepoint and the newer Direct Access solution. Both subjects are introduced well in this book. I say "introduced" because this is a rapidly changing field, from backend servers to endpoint consumer devices. I believe the book might need an update to catch up with the latest updates to UAG, but it is still a great reference.

This book is appropriate for beginner through intermediate UAG experience. I recommend his Customization book for the more complex solutions, which is also very well written.

Ben also includes a wealth of supplemental resource information to use as additional reference materials and tapping into community support forums.

Side note: A significant amount of change in UAG, TMG, and DirectAccess direction has occured since this book was published (in the 2012 to 2013 timeframe). Collect up the current state of these technologies when you are reading this book and be aware of the changes. I'm hoping an update to the book arrives after the dust settles...
