While writing the UAG DirectAccess Configuration Guide
I was working pretty regularly with Ben Ari
from Microsoft to help do some fact checking and troubleshooting. Through that process I discovered that he and Ran Dolev have co-authoring a new book called the Microsoft Forefront UAG 2010 Administrator's Handbook
. It is due for publication very soon but you can pre-order the printed book and even get the first 7 chapters now in RAW (read as we write) PDF from PacktPublishing
at a pretty serious discount. At ~350 pages this "handbook" covers more than just the DirectAccess components of UAG and might be more of a "two-handbook" that will be a very comprehensive resource for anyone wanting to get serious about UAG.
For those of you looking for something a little lighter, there is another book called Deploying Microsoft Forefront Unified Access Gateway 2010
that is co-authored by Tom Schinder
and Yuri Diogenes
which you can also pre-order
. This one, I believe, has a slightly narrower scope but is written by the same guy that brought us the TechNet series on Deploying UAG in a Lab
so here's your chance to get the production deployment guide in print.

From the tooting my own horn camp, the Concurrency Infrastructure Blog
will be listed as reference in the troubleshooting chapter of Ben and Ran's Handbook! Yay us!
