I really recommend this book. Its initial chapters helped me get
openldap up and running just for a couple of hours.
Since I am also interested in programming and scripting with ldap I
also found helpful "Deploying OpenLDAP" by Tom Jackiewicz
contains a chapter discussing the LDAP APIs for a couple of languages.
