I cannot recommend this book highly enough. A mixture of theory and real world practise that covers the design of vsphere 5.0 and where necessary 5.1.
I used this book as part of my study for vcap5-dcd and it helped enormously.

A brilliant book for those starting to learn all about VMware design and even those who have been designing for a while but want to have a refresher on portions they may not do anymore.
