If you are new to this concept, you will still be confused after reading this. The author is not a good teacher, and the presentation style is very formal and technical. The diagrams are not really useful. You can definitely tell this was written by a highly technical person.
The examples are written in PHP. If you use a different language (VS C# or VB), you'll need to translate it on your own.
Most of the information in this book can be found online in the exact same technical format.
I already knew some things about OAuth and just needed a refreshed, so I got what I needed from it. But a "Getting Started" book should be a lot clearer and easier for anyone (with NO experience in the topic) to read and pick up the concepts quickly. This book fails in that regard.
Still - this book wades through a lot of the technical jargon and extracts the more mainstream and interesting bits. It also provides good example code for implementing some of the flows (using PHP) which is handy for seeing the protocol in practice.
Overall, I feel that this is an excellent 'getting started' book and would recommend it for anyone wrestling with the various SSO solutions.
