Happy there is a book on the subject cause so far the documentation for IWS and IAS is pretty weak. A lot of companies that I do work for, complain about that. Also much complaints about the level of documentation for iPlanet portal.
One product that people in my company have really liked though is iPlanet process manager. To use that, you need IAS.
Right now I started to use Resin for my personal, small business use requiring a J2EE server. Any reason I should consider IAS instead?

For iAS 6.x, probably not. iAS 6.x would definately be overkill for a small business.
On the other hand S1AS 7.x has some compelling advantages over Resin. I obviously don't know much about your exact requirements, but a few advantages that I can think of are:
1. It's free.
2. It's faster. (Both for static and dynamic content. You'd probably have to prove this for yourself though, as good benchmarks are hard to find)
3. It's J2EE 1.3 certified
4. It has much more sophisticated HTTP server functionality.

HTTP server functionality: Are you speaking about the current iWS ...and is it bundled together in S1AS ?
Currently we are using enterprise equivalent of iAS6.0 sp1.We are looking for an upgrade to S1AS.I guess the upgrade is not free ?

The iWS codebase has been integrated into S1AS (which is why S1AS's HTTP functionality and performance is so good). It's not exactly iWS 6.0 (for example all of the Java support has been replaced with the new appserver stuff), but it is a close cousin.
