The book was written by Keith Brown and published by Addison Wesley on June 30, 2000 (ISBN: 0201604426).

Both the preface and chapter 10 (IIS) are available online (in PDF format) to give you a feel for the book. I've also converted the bibliography into an online version that will help you get to the references you need. See the link below. Enjoy!
