Looking for a quick start to WSAD

Today I started a 3-4 month contract with a company that is using WSAD. I am SCJP and a systems (kernels:unix/netware) level engineer with 24 years of development, now turning to J2EE application work. I have been retooling into Java since 1998 when I was exposed to Java while helping to port the JVM to SMP Netware.
I had been using tomcat at my last contract position and they recently began using JBoss, then my contract terminated at the end of the year. All the contract programmers were also let go then as well. I was only introduced to JBoss in that time period, without any deep development work with it.
Now, I need to get up to speed fast on WSAD. This new (to me) project is in a phase II point of operation. Phase I is already deployed. Phase II will be adding functionality. My question is: Will this book be a good point for me to start with? (Probably a biased question for you, but I am looking for valid help and direction)
How different is the implementation of J2EE in WSAD from JBoss?
I am a Intellij IDEA user, but have not used Eclipse before. What expectations can I have in using WSAD? Does the book cover much of Eclipse operation or would another book be useful on Eclipse?
Thanks
Doug-t
