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...

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!

If you are looking for a book that describes and explains the numerous features of Forefront Unified Access Gateway, than this is the book I can certainly recommend. The authors systematically describe UAG topics from planning the deployment and installation of UAG, different methods of application and services publishing towards day-by-day tasks of UAG admins and useful techniques for troubleshooting potential problems. The book also covers and clarifies implementation of Microsoft's DirectAccess technology.

What I think differentiates this book from other similar IT reference books is easy, sometimes even amusing style of writing, so you can without any trouble read the book from one end to the other. If you are working with UAG, this book definitely is a great reference and technical resource.

I have been an ISA Server and Forefront TMG specialist for many years and decided that I wanted to add experience in the Unified Access Gateway 2010 sphere as well. By using this book it allowed me to understand the fundamental requirements, design a basic implementation and get a small set of http and https trunks operational in quick order.

Following on from this, it moves into a whole new world revolving around the new Microsoft DirectAccess arena. Ths is quite a complicated arena and the book has made a good effort in demystifying the procedure.

The troubleshooting sections proved extremely useful when I started branching out and enabling other functions and testing the publication of my own applications.

All-in-all a good read and a good tool in any administrators library.
