If you are just looking just to start refer 'Windows Active Directory for Dummies'.

If you are looking for detailed tips and tricks refer 'O'Reilly Active Directory Cookbook'.

If you are planning on to prepare for certification exams and need more options to refer books of Sybex or MSpress.


But personally I liked 'Windows Active Directory for Dummies' to start with, because as Dummies books always do, it started with very basics helping me understand it very easily.
