Question Solaris book recommendation

I'm posting to solicit some recommendations for a well-rounded Solaris 9 or 10 sysadmin book. I realize a glut of new features were introduced with 10; I don't need a lot of details on dtrace, zfs, containers, etc. Once I am familiar with the way Solaris operates, I can get up to speed on the neat new 10 features.

It'd be nice if the book was geared toward sysadmins who are competent in other unix / unix-like OSes already.

I have a couple ideas based on personal conversations and online reviews:
  1. Solaris Operating Environment Boot Camp, by David Rhodes, Dominic Butler
  2. Solaris Solutions for System Administrators, by Sandra Henry-Stocker, Evan R. Marks

Any comments on either of these? Or any additional recommendations?
Kill your t.v.
