The book has an excellent introduction to what FIM does, flowcharts, and what your organization can get out of it. However, it only gets you as far as installing the program with their best practices. The installation instructions included in this book do not actually walk you getting any functionality out of the product.
As I went through the instructions, there were a few areas that I could not get past and even though the authors include their email addresses in the back, I haven't gotten a response. They also do not maintain an errata page like most books have. Some of the problems I found were with the prerequisites. There were some prerequisites listed on there that I could not configure until after doing the actual installation. For example, it says to modif the FIM database in SQL before you have even installed FIM. As far as I can tell, the database is not there until you do the FIM install.
The book also lists some powershell scripts for you to use and assumes you know how to use powershell and doesn't provide any instructions on how to run the script. For anyone who hasn't had to copy a powershell script from the internet, you may end up having to read some pretty long documentation on how to sign the script before you're allowed to run it on your server or how to disable the security altogether.
I bought this book because I was having a hard time with the technet documentation and the book pretty much ends by saying that the reader should go to technet to get some information on how to actually get some functionality out of FIM 2010.
The book is detailed and not for the queasy. MIIS, ILM and FIM require detailed analysis to maintain and support. If you are looking for a starting point to understand the intricasies of Microsoft's Forefront Identity Management solution this is the place. For $50 you can'g go wrong. Otherwise good luck with technet.
