Deployment guys Arwidmark and Nystrom have released an update to their Deployment Fundamentals book. It’s a good overview of what can be achieved these days using standard Microsoft tools. Includes a good PowerShell Primer chapter too: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/9187445093
If you work with OS deployment you definitely need to follow their blog at http://www.deploymentresearch.com. Arwidmark has some good tips on simplifying driver management in the desktop/server deployment tool Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT)
They also have some great presentations on TechNet / Channel9 covering MDT.
