Calling Active Directory / Exchange gurus - I want to know more than you ;-)

Imagine I've never heard of either Active Directory or Exchange but I want to know a good deal about them at a conceptual and practical level. I don't want to become an Active Directory or Exchange administrator but I do want to be able to confidently discuss, at some depth, their workings and application.
Assume that I know a significant amount about networking and IT infrastructure and that reading code doesn't frighten me.
What would you suggest in the way of reading to take me from "only dimly aware they exist" to the priesthood ?
Just be quite clear: I prefer books with code listings than books with screen dumps ... if you catch my drift .... and; I'm not so interested in "how you do X" as "why you might wish to do X"
